Fearing that Fox News may be caving in to left-wing campaigns to silence leading hosts like Judge Jeanine Pirro and Tucker Carlson, President Donald Trump tweeted calls Sunday to "stay strong and fight back with vigor."

A new "Justice With Jeanine Pirro" did not air Saturday night. Instead, the Fox News channel aired a re-run of the documentary series "Scandalous" in the 9pm slot. CNN reported that Pirro had been suspended, but Fox News did not confirm that.

President Trump issued three tweets blasting "the fake news media . . using every trick in the book" to silence the will of the American people who elected him and made Fox News the No. 1-watched news programs.

"Bring back @JudgeJeanine Pirro," President Trump's tweetstorm began. "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. They have all out campaigns against @FoxNews hosts who are doing too well. Fox . . .

". . . must stay strong and fight back with vigor," President Trump continued. "Stop working soooo hard on being politically correct, which will only bring you down, and continue to fight for our Country. The losers all want what you have, don't give it to them. Be strong & prosper, be weak & die! Stay true . . .

". . . to the people that got you there," President Trump concluded. "Keep fighting for Tucker, and fight hard for @JudgeJeanine. Your competitors are jealous – they all want what you've got – NUMBER ONE. Don't hand it to them on a silver platter. They can't beat you, you can only beat yourselves!"

Judge Jeanine has not tweeted for a week, after Fox News condemned remarks she made against Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., at the start of her March 9 episode, as Mediaite reported.

Carlson, meanwhile, has frequently faced attacks for his political positions on immigration and one-time remarks to a shock-jock radio host.

Despite repeated inquiries from several media organizations, Fox News wouldn’t address why “Justice with Judge Jeanine” wasn’t on the air Saturday night. Social media is buzzing with speculation that she’s been suspended, though likely not fired outright, after several advertisers pulled support for the show.

“We’re not commenting on internal scheduling matters,” the network said in a statement.
