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.   

Trump already follows several other Fox News programs and hosts, including O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Eric Bolling and "Fox and Friends."
