Trump told Hannity that he hoped Pirro would be "back soon," prompting the Fox News host to say she would be back on Saturday.

Fox News confirmed on Thursday morning that Pirro's show would return on Saturday.

Pirro's Saturday night program, "Justice with Jeanine," was bumped for two weeks after she suggested Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-Minn.) religious beliefs were at odds with the Constitution.

Omar is one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress.

"Omar wears a hijab, which, according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested," Pirro said during the opening monologue of her March 9 show. "Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?"

Fox News condemned Pirro's remarks and said the matter had been addressed with her internally.

"We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan OmarIlhan OmarMaher hits back at Tlaib: Does she 'want to boycott 93 percent of her own party?' 'The Simpsons' pokes fun at Trump's feud with 'the squad' Trump ramps up attacks on Tlaib MORE," the network said in a statement at the time. "They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly."

Trump called for Pirro's reinstatement when she was bumped.

"Bring back @JudgeJeanine Pirro. The Radical Left Democrats, working closely with their beloved partner, the Fake News Media, is using every trick in the book to SILENCE a majority of our Country," he tweeted.

Before joining Fox News, Pirro served as a district attorney in Westchester County, New York.
