Fox News is parting ways with Lara Trump, a paid contributor, following the launch of her father-in-law Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. “We appreciate Lara’s valuable contributions across Fox News Media programming,” a spokesperson for the network said on Saturday. The network has previously ended employment with those who launch presidential campaigns or who are closely connected to them. Donald Trump announced his latest presidential bid last month. During his 2020 presidential campaign, she served as a senior consultant and surrogate.
Lara Trump, a former adviser to Donald Trump’s re-election campaign who is married to the former president’s son Eric, is the latest contributor added to Fox News’ roster. The announcement came Monday during Fox & Friends.
