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.
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.
