Fox News host Sean Hannity told Donald Trump in a Tuesday interview that he’d be voting for the real-estate mogul in the November general election.
Hannity has been known throughout the election cycle for generally favorable coverage of Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.
“I’m an opinion show,” Hannity noted during a discussion of possible Trump running mates. “And I don’t hold back that I’ll be voting for Donald Trump in November.”
Hannity had been pressing Trump about his progress in picking a running mate and potential members of a Trump cabinet.
Trump said he was “in the process” of choosing the people, but he declined to name candidates.
“You’re not giving me anything here!” Hannity said. “I am not the corrupt press. I’m actually the conservative here.”
“That’s true, by the way,” Trump responded. After Hannity said he would be voting for him, Trump said, “Thank you.”
Before the interview, Trump had mentioned Hannity’s TV ratings on Twitter:
Congratulations to @seanhannity on his tremendous increase in television ratings. Speaking of ratings- I will be on his show tonight @ 10pE.
