Trump went on Fox News and this is what he said
Former President Donald Trump‘s Monday interview with Harris Faulkner of Fox News came to an odd closure, when the pair disagreed with each other over who had initiated the interview.
Toward the end of the interview, Faulkner brought up Trump on Sunday night calling Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas‘s Sunday television appearances “pathetic, clueless,” noting that most former presidents usually refrain from commenting on such things after leaving office.

“Most ex-presidents like yourself don’t weigh in at this level,” she said. “Why did you feel you needed to on this issue?”
“Well, you called me. I didn’t call you in all fairness,” Trump replied.
Faulkner grinned and pushed back, saying “you wrote the statement last night.”
After that, the former president went on to slam how the Biden administration is “destroying our country,” saying “they are destroying it with woke”—and, from there, ripped into cancel culture.
Eventually, Faulkner decided to bring the interview to a close, saying “we did call you and we’re glad you did, and we now have more information than we had on some of the issues with your border policies as well and thankful for your time.”
