President Trump on Saturday told his Twitter followers to watch Fox News's "Justice with Judge Jeanine" later that night.

"Watch Judge Jeanine on Fox News tonight at 9:00 P.M," Trump tweeted, hyping the show staring Jeanine Pirro. 

Trump has encouraged people to watch TV shows in the past, but typically when he is appearing on them.


The tweet comes just days after Sen. Lindsey GrahamLindsey Olin GrahamTrump selects South Carolina lawyer for impeachment trial Democrats formally elect Harrison as new DNC chair McConnell proposes postponing impeachment trial until February MORE (R-S.C.) praised Trump for nominating Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, and joking: "I was worried about who he’d pick. Maybe someone on TV."

Trump's administration has come under fire for publicly endorsing products despite potential ethics concerns.

Treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin on Friday urged parents to have their children see "Lego Batman," a movie he produced before stepping into his Trump administration post.

And White House senior counselor Kellyanne Conway promoted first daughter Ivanka Trump’s merchandise line in a TV interview last month, saying “Go buy Ivanka's stuff.”

The Office of Governmental Ethics called for Conway to be disciplined for the promotion.
