On Monday, Fox Business host Neil Cavuto blasted Trump for his press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
During the press conference, Trump seemed to side with Putin. He was asked whether Russia was held responsible for meddling in the election. Trump responded by saying that he holds “both sides responsible.”
Cavuto described this action as “disgusting” and said that he is allowing Putin to “get away” with it.
The Fox host stated, “I’m sorry, it’s the only way I feel. it’s not a right or left thing to me, it’s just wrong.”
He continued, “A U.S. president on foreign soil talking to our biggest enemy or adversary or competitor … is essentially letting the guy get away with this, and not even offering a mild criticism. That sets us back a lot.”

Cavuto is known to be an occasional critic of Trump and his administration.
He was not the only Fox News host who was not happy with Trump’s actions during the press conference.
Fox News host Stuart Varney also bashed Trump for what he described as “not a very forceful presentation.” Abby Huntsman, daughter of Jon Huntsman, Trump’s ambassador to Russia, also criticized Trump. She tweeted saying that Trump threw the American “people and country under the bus.”
