Kayleigh McEnany, who was White House press secretary under Donald Trump, is joining Fox News. McEnany will be an on-air commentator. Fox News on Tuesday aired McEnany’s first interview since leaving with White House, a sitdown with Harris Faulker. After the first excerpt was shown, Faulkner then welcomed McEnany to “the Fox family. We will be seeing much more of her in the future.”
Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany in financial disclosure documents published Tuesday indicated that she had an agreement in place to join Fox News this month, but a source familiar with the matter says those discussions are now on hold.
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany tweeted today that she tested positive for Covid-19 on Monday morning. She says she is experiencing no symptoms and had no knowledge of Hope Hick’s testing positive before her briefing last Thursday. She said in a statement posted on her Twitter account that she will begin to quarantine.
President Trump’s new press secretary Kayleigh McEnany has made her presence quickly felt at the White House, reviving the press briefing and taking on an outsized role in messaging the administration’s response to the novel coronavirus in the throes of an election year. McEnany, 32, possesses many of the qualities valued by her boss — she’s not intimidated by the media, she’s poised and good on television, and she’s a vociferous defender of the Trump agenda.
Kayleigh McEnany, President Trump’s fourth press secretary, offered the first news briefing in 417 days on Friday, pledging at its outset, “I will never lie to you, you have my word on that.” That was soon tested over her assertions that the president has always told the truth regarding sexual assault allegations made against him.
New White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows is reportedly considering replacing Stephanie Grisham, who has held the post of press secretary and communications director since last July. Pentagon spokesperson Alyssa Farah or Trump campaign spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany are under consideration to step into the role, Axios reports.
