Trump tweeted 7:20 a.m. Friday morning, September 15, that the network should "Apologize for untruth!" after bashing it for its politics and "bad programming".

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about Hill's tweets during her daily briefing on Wednesday, and said they should be considered a "fireable offense".

It's important to note that ESPN told Think Progress they always wanted Hill to host the show Wednesday with Smith despite reports saying they tried to do otherwise.

ESPN has also said in a statement that the tweet crossed a line, though the network has not suspended her, which has irked conservatives and their media outlets. "People are dumping it in RECORD numbers", Trump tweeted Friday.

'I'm not sure if he's aware but I think that's one of the more outrageous comments that anyone could make, ' the Trump spokeswoman replied.

Unfortunately for POTUS, it looks like sports network is satisfied with Hill's apology earlier this week, in which she claimed her views did not reflect that of ESPN's.

Hill publicly apologized for the trouble she'd brought on her employer.

Google will unveil the Pixel 2 on October 4
The video suggests that the Pixel 2 will have all the answers to these questions, and that definitely piques our interest. Some questions, like the battery, temperature and camera, could be referring to improvements the Pixel 2 will offer.

And hopefully, Hill, who is often outspoken on social justice issues, won't find herself hesitating the next time she's in a position to say something impactful, even after this controversy, which only further exposed the truth in her comments. "We have addressed this issue with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate".

The attached note said: "My comments on Twitter expressed my personal beliefs".

She apologised on Wednesday after the White House called her remarks a "fire-able offence". "My respect for my company and my colleagues remains unconditional".

ESPN did not suspend Hill.

NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who made national headlines a year ago for kneeling during the national anthem before games to protest police brutality, also expressed his support for Ms Hill in a tweet. She thanked them for their support, writing, "Love that my @NABJSports brothers came to check on me".

Co-host Michael Smith refused to do the show without Hill, according to the report.
