Fox News cuts off Trump campaign press conference mid-speech

"Whoa, whoa, whoa - I just think we have to be very clear", host Neil Cavuto said after the network cut away from McEnany.

Speaking in her "personal capacity" during what she told reporters was a campaign event at the RNC headquarters on Tuesday, McEnany said Republicans want "every legal vote to be counted, and every illegal vote to be discarded" - which is when Fox News stopped their broadcast of the briefing.

"You don't take these positions because you want an honest election", she said.

"Fox & Friends" host Brian Kilmeade glossed over the potential conflict of the press secretary's "dual role" when he announced her appearance on the show.

Mr Biden, who is of Irish heritage, has warned that the agreement can not "become a casualty of Brexit". This is the first step in an infringement procedure".

McEnany told Fox News that there will be a number of affidavits filed Thursday from people alleging illegal actions, including from one woman who was told she'd already voted by mail after she received a ballot but didn't cast it. "She's charging that the other side is 'welcoming fraud and welcoming illegal voting".

"I will say that all laws are being followed with regard to the expected transition, though we expect to continue on as the Trump administration, and we will see how our litigation goes", said McEnany. But that is an explosive charge to make that the other side is effectively rigging and cheating.

Fox News, owned by Rupert Murdoch, appears to have shifted away from its loyalty to Mr Trump over the past week amid signs of a growing rift.

Donald Trump, who lost the election when former Vice President Biden crossed the threshold of 270 electoral votes, has nonetheless refused to accept the results or concede, instead insisting that widespread voter fraud was the sole reason for his challenger's victory.
