Breitbart: Former President Donald Trump applauded the “sky high ratings” his town hall delivered for CNN, taking to social media Thursday night to proclaim “many minds were changed.”
He used his own Truth Social network to outline his pleasure at the result and the three million-plus viewers who tuned in.
“People are criticizing CNN for giving me a Forum to tell the TRUTH. I believe it was a very smart thing that they did, with Sky High Ratings that they haven’t seen in a very long time,” Trump wrote in a post on Truth Social. “It was by far the biggest Show of the night, the week, and the month!”
Trump also made clear he was making “important” points regarding ongoing issues such as the Afghanistan withdrawal debacle, inflation, Russia-Ukraine war, and the porous southern border, much to the despair of his critics and the “radical left.”
NEW: Trump told CNN chief Chris Licht backstage before the town hall that he would boost their ratings — to which Licht nodded and said he should “have fun” per ppl familiar. Behind the scenes look @guardian https://t.co/pMx8vbSoQd

CNN’s prime-time average hung around half a million viewers, well behind Fox and MSNBC, in past weeks.
That is “five times higher than CNN’s typical performance at 8pm,” Brian Stelter tweeted. “The event outdated(sic) Fox and MSNBC.”
