"McEnany said in a statement she will be talking about 'Republican ideas and values" in her new job.
Former CNN contributor and Donald Trump surrogate Kayleigh McEnany is reportedly taking the job of national spokesperson for the Republican National Committee. CNN Money reports that she asked to be let out of her CNN contract to start her new role.
McEnany also mentioned Monday's Medal of Honor ceremony, during which Trump honored Vietnam War hero James McCloughan, and other actions she said Trump has taken to reform the veterans healthcare system. "Tax credits for health care, preservation of preexisting conditions provisions and withdrawing from free trade deals combine to tell the story of a president who puts people before party", argued McEnany for an opinion piece on Trump's first 100 days.
"Join Kayleigh McEnany as she provides you the news of the week from Trump Tower in NY!"
RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel added that McEnany will help the RNC continue to solidify the GOP's support for and message around President Trump's successes moving into the 2018 midterm elections.
Trump has relentlessly attacked news organizations, including CNN, curing his campaign and as president, frequently accusing outlets of broadcasting "fake news". The presentation ends with McEnany saying, "And that is the real news".
Some have criticized the videos as political propaganda. She pushed that President Trump is putting the American worker first because they deserve a raise. It was a play on the administration's consistent criticism of the mainstream press for peddling what it calls "fake news". Going further was Michael McFaul, the United States ambassador to Russian Federation under President Obama.
