Their virtual sit-down special with President Donald Trump from the Lincoln Memorial in May 2020 attracted nearly 4 million viewers, and their town hall with former Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders in April 2019 was the highest-rated town hall featuring a 2020 presidential candidate. Furthermore, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, a Democratic contender for president in 2020 and the first Democrat to appear on the network this election cycle, was interviewed by Baier. Additionally, he assisted in leading coverage of the 2018 election, which, according to Nielsen Media Research, had the greatest overall viewing rating of any midterm election in cable news history, surpassing both broadcast and cable news.

Bret continued, claiming that the reports had been created incorrectly and were therefore untrue.

Three Days In January By Bret

Baier is the author of this book bearing his name. The period between Eisenhower’s now-prophetic farewell address on the evening of January 17, 1961, and Kennedy’s inauguration on the afternoon of January 20, 1961, is depicted by Baier in his book Three Days in January as the last act of one of the greatest presidents of modern America. During this period, Eisenhower made a sincere attempt to prepare the country and the next president for the challenges that lay ahead. It’s really well done how Baier presents this point as the end of one story.
