- Kimberly Guilfoyle, a longtime Fox News host, will leave the network to join her boyfriend, Donald Trump Jr., on the campaign trail.
- Guilfoyle is likely to take a job at America First Policies, a pro-Trump nonprofit that has worked to recruit her, according to a source who spoke with CNN.
Kimberly Guilfoyle, a longtime Fox News host, will leave the network to join Donald Trump Jr., whom she is dating, and President Donald Trump’s team on the campaign trail, multiple news outlets reported Friday.
Guilfoyle is likely to take a job at America First Policies, a pro-Trump nonprofit that has worked to recruit her, a source told CNN. The Fox personality is a favorite of the president’s and was under consideration for the White House press secretary role both during the presidential transition and after Sean Spicer’s resignation in July 2017.
Guilfoyle remained in her role as a host of Fox’s weekday opinion show “The Five” even as she engaged in talks about a White House job and after her relationship with the president’s eldest son was made public. A network representative told Politico last year that Guilfoyle’s potential position in the administration fell through in part because of her “long-term contract” with Fox.
Trump Jr., 40, confirmed the rumors of his relationship with Guilfoyle, 49, late last month in a series of Instagram posts showing the couple vacationing in Montana. Vanessa Haydon Trump, who was Trump Jr.’s wife for 12 years, filed for divorce in March.
Guilfoyle has been married twice before – first to California’s lieutenant governor, Gavin Newsom, whom she divorced in 2005, and then to the interior designer Eric Villency from 2006 to 2009.
