Donald Trump Asks Fox News to Bring Back Jeanine Pirro Following Controversial Comments
Jeanine Pirro has recently been pulled off the air by Fox News and the U.S. President was quick to come to her defense and ask the network to bring her back.
"Justice with Judge Jeanine" usually airs on Saturday nights, but on March 16, it was replaced by a re-run of the documentary "Scandalous" without a warning.
Pirro's controversial comments directed at Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar are believed to be connected to her absence but it is yet to be revealed if she will be permanently suspended.

QUESTIONING OMAR'S ALLEGIANCE
Last week, during her show, Pirro set off alarms by questioning whether Omar, as a Muslim woman wearing a hijab, could be true to the U.S. Constitution.
“Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which is antithetical to the U.S. Constitution?”

BLAMING DEMOCRAT'S FOR PIRRO'S ABSENCE
Pulling Pirro of the air after her comments, however, was considered by Trump as the work of "Radical Left Democrats" who use "every trick in the book to silence a majority of our country."
According to the Head of State, suspending Jeanine was Fox News' way of being politically correct, but he advised the network to not give in to those who want to harm the United States.
In a series of tweets, Trump explained that Fox News must remain strong, fight back and stop working so hard on being politically correct, giving the choice of being strong and prosper or weak and die.

FOX NEWS TURNED ITS BACK ON PIRRO
Fox News added that the judge's words do not reflect those of the network and that the matter has been addressed directly with the host, whose future is yet to be revealed, having already lost several advertisers when it comes to her show.
