Former Trump press secretary joins Fox News

Donald Trump’s former White House press secretary has been hired by Fox News as an on-air commentator, the network said Tuesday.

Kayleigh McEnany, 32, made her television debut in 2016 on CNN before officially joining Trump’s team the following year.

McEnany was appointed as White House spokeswoman in April 2020, a position she kept until Trump left office in January.

Since the presidential election in November, McEnany has come under fire for backing Trump’s baseless claims that the election was fraudulent.

The Fox network has been a landing pad for many Trump administration alumni: Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who served as White House press secretary from May 2017 to June 2019, was recruited by Fox News as a commentator.

She left her Fox position after announcing in late January that she was running for governor of the state of Arkansas.

Former Trump economic advisor Larry Kudlow has also joined Fox. Since February, he has hosted a weekly show on Fox Business, Fox News’ sister channel with an equally conservative editorial stance.

Texas governor lifts mask mandate, opening state ‘100 percent’

Texas Governor Greg Abbott on Tuesday lifted a state mask mandate and said he was authorizing businesses restricted because of the coronavirus pandemic to open “100 percent.”

“For nearly half a year, most businesses have been open either 75 percent or 50 percent and during that time, too many Texans have been sidelined from employment opportunities,” Abbott said.

“Too many small business owners have struggled to pay their bills,” the Republican governor said in a speech to the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce.

“This must end. It is now time to open Texas 100 percent,” he said to cheers and applause from his audience.

“Every business that wants to be open should be open.”

Abbott said he was lifting the restrictions because of the arrival of Covid-19 vaccines, and better testing and treatments.

“Texas now has the tools to protect Texans from the virus,” he said.

Abbott imposed a mask mandate in the second most populous US state eight months ago.

He said an executive order rescinding his previous Covid-19 orders and restrictions would take effect on Wednesday.

Abbott’s move lifting restrictions came despite a warning on Monday by Rochelle Walensky, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“I am really worried about reports that more states are rolling back the exact public health measures we have recommended to protect people from Covid-19,” Walensky said.

“I remain deeply concerned about a potential shift in the trajectory of the pandemic,” she said.

“Now is not the time to relax the critical safeguards that we know can stop the spread of Covid-19,” the CDC director said.

“Continue wearing your well-fitted mask and taking the other public health prevention actions that we know work.”

Palace believes PH vaccine supply won’t be interrupted: ‘Tuluy-tuloy na ‘to’

By Prince Golez

President Rodrigo Duterte’s spokesman expressed confidence that there will be no supply interruption to the government’s Covid-19 vaccination program.

On Wednesday, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said the country is set to receive more vaccine doses from the COVAX Facility and China’s Sinovac Biotech over the next months.

“Tuluy-tuloy na po iyan dahil may inaasahan po tayong isang milyon galing po sa Sinovac, ito na po iyong bibilhin natin. Ang ginagamit natin ay iyong donated lamang ‘no. Pero kung matatandaan ninyo, February, talagang magdi-deliver sila ng 50,000 at pagdating po ng Marso magdi-deliver sila ng 950,” Roque said in an interview on Dobol B sa News TV.

The secretary also said another 500,000 vaccine doses shipped by the COVAX Facility would arrive in the country this month.

“Iyong COVAX Facility ay inaasahan po natin na mayroon pa tayong 500,000 plus so sigurado po iyan darating ng Marso. So sa tingin ko po hindi na maaantala ito at pagdating po ng Abril eh diyan naman po sisipa iyong marami rin nating nabili rin ‘no,” according to him.

“Kaya nga po kampante po ang gobyerno na tuluy-tuloy na po ito at sa lalong mabilis na panahon sana matapos po natin ang mga health workers, 3.4 million po iyan. Pagkatapos po sana ay mayroon na tayong makuha para sa mga seniors dahil iyon na po ang ating susunod na target ng ating vaccination,” he added.

The Philippines launched its Covid-19 vaccination campaign on Monday with doses of Sinovac vaccines donated by Chinese government.
