NEW YORK – President Donald Trump says he's coming back as a regular guest on the morning show “Fox & Friends.”

The response from Fox News Channel: Not so fast.

In an odd moment during the president's interview on the Fox morning show Tuesday, Trump said he had agreed to appear on the show once a week — probably on Mondays, Tuesdays if he had to.

“I look forward to it,” Trump said. “Like the old days.”

During much of the Obama administration, before he was a presidential candidate, Trump had a regular call-in segment on “Fox & Friends.” Fox is the network of choice for many of the president's fans.

Trump's “news” seemed to catch the morning show team off-guard.

“I haven't heard that,” said Steve Doocy. “Well, that's an exclusive right there.”

“That's fantastic,” said Brian Kilmeade.
