Fox’s Neil Cavuto is defending his employer amid criticism from President Trump. Last week, the president attacked the network in a series of irate tweets. President Trump suggested his supporters find a different news outlet, saying the network “isn’t working for us” any longer.

Last week, Cavuto directly addressed the controversy. “First of all, Mr. President, we don’t work for you. I don’t work for you,” he said during his show. “My job is to cover you, not fawn over you or rip you. Just report on you ― call balls and strikes on you.”

The Fox News host went on to continue criticizing the president. “I’m not the one who said tariffs are a wonderful thing. You are. Just like I’m not the one who said Mexico would pay for the wall. You did. Just like I’m not the one who claimed that Russia didn’t meddle in the 2016 election. You did. I’m sorry if you don’t like these facts being brought up,” Cavuto said.

Cavuto wasn’t pulling any punches, even bringing up President Trump’s alleged affair with Stormy Daniels. Although, Cavuto wasn’t the only Fox News personality to defend the network from the president’s attacks. Anchor Bret Baier and contributor Brit Hume have both pushed back on Trump’s jabs at the network.

Cavuto’s response didn’t deter the president from attacking the network again over the weekend. This time, the president claimed that Fox News benefits from higher ratings when they treat him fairly, choosing to use Sean Hannity as an example. Fox News’ Hannity was the most-watched cable news show in August, followed by Tucker Carlson Tonight and The Ingraham Angle.

Here are the tweets from President Trump that sparked his most recent feud with the network:
