Hannity Stumps For Trump After Saying He Wouldn't

But the network statement issued Tuesday did not explain how it was addressed. "We have an extraordinary team of journalists helming our coverage tonight and we are extremely proud of their work", the statement read.

"I mean, when people say that there's no difference and when Fox tries to consider itself a news organization, they have some complications at moments like this". There was no information on whether or not actions had been taken against Hannity.

After Hannity spoke, Jeanine Pirro, another Fox News personality, joined the president on stage.

In another tweet, Hannity asserted, "And to be clear, I was not referring to my journalist colleagues at FOX News in those remarks".

President Trump is holding his final midterm rally in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, just nine hours before the polls open in the state.

Fox News would not comment on how the situation was 'addressed, ' or provide any information about Hannity's actions beyond its initial public comment. "They've been with us from the beginning".

In an Election Day Twitter post, Hannity insisted that he hadn't planned to speak at last night's event in Missouri.

Trump stayed quiet for much of election night as Republicans maintained their hold on the Senate and Democrats captured control of the House - a shift all but certain to redefine his presidency. "This is a problem. It's unsafe for democracy and a threat to a free press".

Hannity has been rebuked by Fox in the past.

"That was really something", Trump said, stepping back up to the podium and giving the audience two thumbs up.

Hannity cleared the air on Tuesday after appearing alongside the president when he initially said he would not.

Their appearances caused CNN to question Fox's credibility.

It came after Hannity's prime-time show aired from the rally site.

But while Trump's plays to his most loyal supporters helped rev up the crowds in small towns and rural areas in red states, they were viewed as a turnoff to moderates, independents and women in the suburban districts needed to keep the House in GOP hands. He pleaded with viewers to vote Republican on Tuesday to support Trump, and his opening monologue echoed a campaign slogan seen on signs overlooking the stage: "Promises made, promises kept".

He noted that Bill and Hillary Clinton recently announced a multi-city speaking tour and that Obama was back on the campaign trail looking to eclipse Trump's success.

Hannity tweeted earlier Monday that he would not share the stage with Trump, despite reports that he would.
