Fox News host Eric Bolling locked horns with billionaire Mark Cuban over President Trump and the May Day protests that turned into demonstrations against the president.
While May 1 has been a day when demonstrators gather in solidarity for worker’s rights, this year’s events took on a familiar look as protesters transformed the national demonstrations into anti-Trump marches.
Bolling sparked the debate on Monday’s premiere of “The Fox News Specialists,” saying protesters at different rallies and demonstrations are unified in their dislike of Trump.

“Trump is a unifier on that regard,” Bolling said.
“Diplomacy starts at home,” Cuban fired back, with a challenge. “If you want to end conflict, go talk to them. Don’t just say ‘I don’t want to acknowledge them,’ or ignore them.”
Bolling pointed out that Cuban, the Dallas Mavericks owner and star of “Shark Tank,” was one of the many people who thought Trump would never win the election.
“He hasn’t changed his stance and they’re still protesting,” Bolling said, adding that the multi-message protests do less to affect the president’s decisions than the concerns of his own family members.
Cuban argued that Trump should still pay attention to the voices of protesters.
“He works so hard to talk to people overseas. He works so little to talk to people who didn’t vote for him or didn’t vote,” he said.

Co-host Kat Timpf called it a “two-way street,” noting that Trump would have a hard time talking to the protesters anyway because of their message.
“The signs aren’t like ‘please talk to me,’ they’re like ‘Donald Trump is a hate crime,'” she said.
Many Twitter users voiced their disapproval not only of Cuban’s remarks but his entire appearance on the Fox News show’s debut.

@Auxranch @ericbolling Well , I turned it off as soon as I saw Cuban. Bolling gets a rare interview with Trump then has Cuban on to trash him. Yes, that’s awful!
