Ahead of President Donald Trump's final election rally, the Fox News host said he wouldn't appear on stage with the President to help excite the Republican base before voters head to the polls Tuesday.

The network did not say what, if any, discipline that the two network personalities would face. "This was NOT planned".

As observers pointed out, Fox News journalists were among the "people in the back" that Hannity insulted.

Trump has maintained a busy campaign schedule in the final stretch of the race, with 11 rallies over six days.

Pirro then came out - "She's my friend and she's your friend", said Trump, "Justice Jeanine." - and called Trump "the tip of the spear who fights for us".

"The campaign started with talk of [the] blue wave", said Fox News' chief national correspondent Ed Henry on "The Ingraham Angle" on Monday night.

While Fox News had no immediate comment on Hannity campaigning with Trump at Monday night's rally, the network had previously spoken out when Hannity appeared in a 2016 Trump ad. Hannity was made to cancel a 2010 appearance in Cincinnati when it was revealed he was participating in a fundraiser for the Tea Party.

The Fox News employees all spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the matter.

Trump held three campaign rallies on November 5, the day before the midterm elections, and 11 over the past six days leading up to the November 6 midterms.

And Hannity had been mixing his show up in political events for years.

Trump, who had appeared live on Hannity's show during a backstage conversation just moments before, summoned the Fox News host to the stage, and he obliged.

One former senior Fox News employee told CNN Business that he had spoken to a number of former colleagues who are still at the network about the matter. "This was an unfortunate distraction and has been addressed". "They've been with us from the beginning also". Speaking to a rally crowd in Georgia over the weekend, Trump made ominous references to the "Antifa" far-left-leaning militant groups and a migrant caravan moving slowly toward the U.S. -Mexico border that he has called an "invasion".

Their speeches weren't televised on Fox News, but were seen on C-SPAN.

But in my worst fears about what that would look like and how it might affect our democracy, I never thought I would see what I did Monday night on Fox News, starting with the propaganda performance of Sean Hannity. "Anyone doing business with Fox News should worry about the network's inability to enforce even the most bare minimum standards".
