Kimberly Guilfoyle issued a bitter-sweet announcement on Tuesday, revealing that she will be leaving Fox News to officially become the Vice Chairwoman of the pro-Trump PAC America First.
As noted by The Daily Caller, here’s what she said in a series of tweets:
“Today I have a bitter-sweet announcement. I’ve decided to leave Fox News Channel and dedicate myself full-time to joining America First as Vice Chairwoman, campaigning across the country and firmly standing with President Trump. I will miss my Fox family. I thank Fox for the opportunities it has provided me. I thank all the talented producers, staff, and above all I thank the best fans out there.”
The Daily Caller reports that a source told them that, “Fox has known for a while that she was planning on moving to the America First PAC and her leaving Fox is 100-percent voluntary. She is very excited about her new challenge and is appreciative that she had a great run with Fox News.”
According to their website, America First is “the primary super PAC dedicated to electing federal candidates who support the agenda of the Trump-Pence administration.”
The group said it is “committed to creating an America where prosperity, safety and strength reign.”
Guilfoyle — who is currently dating Donald Trump Jr., the president’s son — will also be hitting the campaign trail with Trump Jr. and other conservatives ahead of midterm elections in November.
However, it’s not very surprising that she is leaving the network to become more active in helping the Trump campaign.
In 2017, Guilfoyle was reportedly in talks with the White House about working for the communications team, a sign that she wanted to be more involved helping the president.
“I’m a patriot, and it would be an honor to serve the country. I think it’d be a fascinating job. It’s a challenging job, and you need someone really determined and focused, a great communicator in there with deep knowledge to be able to handle that position.”
While many will miss Guilfoyle’s presence on Fox, she will definitely be seen a lot this fall while she helping Republicans keep control of the House and Senate in midterm elections.
She will also play a big role in helping the Trump campaign in the 2020 presidential election.
