President Donald Trump has often been criticized for having a chaotic inner circle.
Most of Trump’s problems have stemmed from the way White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer handles the media.
According to reports, Trump is very close to firing Spicer and will likely be replacing him with Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The self-professed “hack” journalist Glenn Thrush and Clinton camp pal, er, reporter Maggie Haberman reported that in place of Spicer — who Trump has allegedly lost confidence in — the president was considering hiring Kimberly Guilfoyle of the Fox News Channel to his communications team.
That report was seemingly backed up by one from The Associated Press — also about impending shake-ups to the Trump team — which alleged that Trump was thinking about hiring Fox News producers for the same purpose.
Now comes yet another report of future changes to Trump’s camp, this time from the California Bay Area media outlet The Mercury News, which obtained an exclusive interview with Guilfoyle herself recently at the Fox News studio in New York.
Guilfoyle suggested that she would be happy to take on the role.
“I’m a patriot, and it would be an honor to serve the country,” Guilfoyle stated when asked if she’d consider serving in the administration as press secretary. “I think it’d be a fascinating job, it’s a challenging job, and you need someone really determined and focused, a great communicator in there with deep knowledge to be able to handle that position.”
“If you want to be successful and do communications with President Trump, you have to be someone who he actually wants to spend a little bit of time with,” she said on “The Five” last week, as reported by the Mercury News. “You’ve got to insist on getting in front of POTUS, talk to him, and have like five, six minutes with him before you go out there and take the podium, and otherwise you’re driving blind.”
“It has to be somebody with a very close relationship, where there’s trust there, there’s inherent loyalty, someone who’s been there from the beginning,” Guilfoyle added.
Guilfoyle said she would be a good fit for the role due to her positive relationship with Trump.
“I think I have a very good relationship with the president,” she told the Mercury News. “I think I enjoy a very straightforward and authentic, very genuine relationship, one that’s built on trust and integrity, and I think that’s imperative for success in that position.”
