President Trump added Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Jesse Watters to his lineup of followed accounts on Twitter Thursday, putting them on a short list that includes only 43 other profiles.
Trump’s new follows on his personal account come in the wake of a major media shakeup at the conservative news network.
Fox News revealed Wednesday that “Tucker Carlson Tonight” will move from its 9 p.m. spot into Bill O’Reilly’s coveted 8 p.m. slot after O’Reilly was ousted from the network in the midst of a sexual harassment scandal.
Carlson had recently jumped from his show’s 7 p.m. spot to the 9 p.m., after Megyn Kelly left the network in November.
Watters, whose "Watters' World” segment aired during O’Reilly’s show, will get a spot on “The Five," which will air at 9 p.m., along with five other co-hosts: Kimberly Guilfoyle, Dana Perino, Bob Beckel, Greg Gutfeld and Juan Williams.
