Former CNN contributor and Donald Trump surrogate Kayleigh McEnany is reportedly taking the job of national spokesperson for the Republican National Committee.
CNN reported on Sunday that McEnany had asked to be released from her contract and later appeared as the anchor of a faux newscast touting President Trump’s accomplishments. But it was unclear at the time if the Trump campaign or the Republican National Committee was funding the broadcast.
On Monday, Politico Playbook Plus reported that McEnany would be taking the job of RNC national spokesperson.
