In the book “Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency,” Murdoch told his son Lachlan Murdoch, the CEO of Fox Corp, to project Biden as the winner of Arizona, Insider reported.

“Lachlan got his father on the phone to ask if he wanted to make the early call. His father, with signature grunt, assented, adding, ‘F— him,'” Wolff wrote in the forthcoming book, a copy of which was obtained by Insider.

The Hill has reached out to Fox News for comment.

Fox was the first major network to call Arizona for Biden.

The book said the decision angered the Trump campaign, which was feeling confident they would emerge victorious on election night.

Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer called Jason Miller, Trumps spokesperson at the time, to give him the news, according to the book.

“Miller involuntarily rose from his seat. ‘What the f—?’ he said out loud, looking around and seeing the still-merry and untroubled faces in the Map Room, Wolff wrote.

“What the f—? How can they call this?” Trump said after hearing the decision, according to the book. “We’re winning. And everybody can see we are going to win. Everybody’s calling to say that we’re winning. And then they pull this?”

Fox News media correspondent Howard Kurtzsaid in November that Miller called Rupert Murdoch after the decision to complain.

Biden won Arizona by about 10,000 votes. Trump and many of his allies have claimed without evidence that the election was rigged and that there was widespread voter fraud.
