Jesse Watters plans to sit down with President Donald Trump on an upcoming episode of “Watters’ World” on Fox News.
The President will sit down with the host ahead of his rally in Nashville on Wednesday, along with his appearance on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on that night. The episode will air on Saturday, March 18 at 8 p.m. EST.
According to Fox News, Watters and Trump plan to discuss timely topics, such as the GOP’s current efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, as well as his immigration policies. He will also discuss the economy, tax reform, and other topics.
Watters has been with Fox since 2002, when he joined the network as a production assistant. He began working with “The O’Reilly Factor” in 2003, where the original “Watters’ World” was a segment. It was picked up for its own show earlier this year.
“I am humbled that FOX News Channel has given me this opportunity. I look forward to viewers entering my world more often and wouldn’t be in this position if it weren’t for Bill,” Watters said in a statement.
Trump has already met with Watters’ mentor, Bill O’Reilly, since getting elected. He sat down with O’Reilly in a pre-taped interview that screened after the Super Bowl. The segment drew in 12.2 million viewers.
The interview is most notable for when O’Reilly responded to Trump’s claim that it was better to get along with Russia, saying that Putin was “a killer.” Trump’s response: “You think our country is so innocent?”
Trump has appeared multiple times on the network since Election Day. He also appeared on “Fox & Friends” on Feb. 28 before his first joint address to Congress.
While his relationship with the network has been strained before — specifically following a dispute with former anchor Megyn Kelly during the 2016 Presidential election cycle — it has improved since his Electoral College victory over Hillary Clinton. Trump can often be seen tweeting statistics and news mentioned on “Fox & Friends.”
