Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, known for her tough talk and holding journalists accountable, has made a major announcement about her future.
Though Fox News has become less and less conservative over the past few years, it seems they are at least making one good decision: hiring Kayleigh McEnany as a contributor.
On the morning of March 2, Fox News announced their decision to hire the former White House press secretary.
“It is my distinct pleasure today to welcome Kayleigh McEnany to the Fox family. We will be seeing much more of her in the future,” said Fox News host Harris Faulkner.

Commenting on President Trump
In her first interview since leaving the White House, McEnany celebrated President Trump for expanding the voter base of the Republican Party.
“One thing that needs to be said is that he has grown this party in a way that I think members of the Republican party should recognize,” she said.
“He got the highest percentage of the black vote of any Republican candidate running for national office in 20 years, highest percentage of the Hispanic vote of any Republican running for office in 16 years. He has made this party more inclusive, more expansive, more welcoming. And I think that Republicans on the Hill who are so quick to say President Trump doesn’t have a place in the party, they need to look at the numbers, and why these new voters who aren’t typically Republican voters came to the party. And it’s because he offered economic hope and opportunity to a lot of people,” she added.
