Fox’s Jeanine Pirro to interview Trump this weekend
Fox News’s Jeanine Pirro is set to interview President Trump live by phone on Saturday night amid the president’s calls for a range of gun measures following last week’s shooting at a Florida high school.
Trump and the “Justice with Judge Jeanine” host are expected to “discuss the state of the economy, as well as the debate on gun legislation” following the shooting at the Parkland, Fla., high school, according to a network announcement.
Pirro, a staunch supporter of the president, has interviewed him before, most recently in May 2017. Their latest interview will air Saturday night at 9 p.m.
Trump has granted broadcast television interviews to Fox News and Fox Business more than every other outlet combined. The interview with Pirro will mark his 21st with one of the Fox networks since taking office.
The last time Trump appeared on CNN or MSNBC was August and May 2016, respectively.
Trump’s interview Saturday night comes after he called for a range of gun measures this week, including arming trained teachers to defend against potential school shooters and raising the age to purchase long guns from 18 to 21.
“Armed Educators (and trusted people who work within a school) love our students and will protect them. Very smart people. Must be firearms adept & have annual training. Should get yearly bonus. Shootings will not happen again – a big & very inexpensive deterrent. Up to States,” Trump tweeted Saturday afternoon.
The president has also said he will be “strongly pushing” for comprehensive background checks and wants to see a ban on bump stocks, an attachment that allows weapons to fire more quickly.
