Fox News hires Lara Trump as contributor, agrees to work around potential Senate run

It’s true that Fox News has seen a downturn in the ratings in the wake of the 2020 election, but recent hiring moves seem to indicate that they’re attempting to win back some of the loyal viewers they lost.

According to Mediaite, that was evidenced this week during Monday’s “Fox & Friends,” when it was announced that Lara Trump, campaign adviser to former President Donald Trump and wife to Eric Trump, was hired by the network as a contributor, despite her potential future decision to run for a North Carolina Senate seat.

Lara Trump reacted with excitement to the announcement, which was made by host Ainsley Earhardt, who welcomed Lara Trump to the Fox News family.

“I’m so excited, first of all, to be joining the Fox family,” Lara Trump said. “I sort of feel like I’ve been an unofficial member of the team for so long. You guys know, it was kind of a joke over the past five years, I would come there so often that the security guards were like maybe we should just give you a key.”

Co-host Steve Doocy inquired about heavily-rumored reports that the former president’s daughter-in-law will be launching a campaign for a soon-to-be-vacated Senate seat out of North Carolina. Should she make that announcement, she would no longer be able to work for the network as a contributor.

“Fox has been very generous with me. They have said, look, if that’s something that you ultimately decide to do, they’re going to work with me on that front and make sure that everything all the rules are followed and we do everything properly,” Lara Trump said while expressing gratitude for the network’s willingness to be flexible.

Her hire marks the third President Trump-era person to join the network. Most recently, Fox News announced that former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany joined as a contributor. Before that, former economic adviser Larry Kudlow joined the Fox Business Network and was provided his own show.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who also served as President Trump’s press secretary, was hired by the network but her contract was later terminated after announcing that she officially entered the race for the governor of Arkansas.

Only time will tell if Lara Trump sticks around for any length of time, but she should feel at home in her appearances, as she made many of them during Donald Trump’s time in the White House.

  1. Williams and Donna Brazil needs to go thought they got fired she was crooked why would they bring the back !!!

  2. I sure hope this helps. I am a faithful watcher, but know many who are not. I used to love to watch outnumbered, until they used two terrible women every day.
    Just wish you would get rid of Ron
    Williams, but have ask before. Some favorites are Dana, Pete and Greg.

  3. Trust in FOX is lost. They have already deceived us once. Perhaps Lara Trump and Kayleigh McEnany will be able to bring back thousands of Americans who have dispersed through different channels, trying to find the words of the truth. To be honest, FOX was often almost no different from the thoroughly deceitful and rotten SNN and MSNBS … Good luck to Lara Trump and Kayleigh McEnany!

  4. I’m so happy Lara joined Fox News. I love her, smart lady, and a big boost for fox. We want Donald Trump back so bad but I’m worried if we don’t make a move soon it might be to late. I’m praying something can be done soon so we can get our old America back. I’m a patriot and love my country ” I want it back”

  5. It may be too little and too late.

    FOX NEWS slit their own throats when they gave Arizona to Biden ahead of everyone else. Since then, they fired a number of people who made that call. And they deserved to get the axe. There’s the old saying “dance with the one that brung ya”. Guys like smarty-pants Chris Stirewalt cooked his own goose. Lots of people swore they’d never watch FNC ever again. It’ll be a choir to get that part of the audience back.

  6. It’s about time they get back to the fox News every one loved before all the trash came in .all we are asking is fair and balanced news .Fox News was going down a very dark hole and people turned Fox off .congrats to Laura Trump on Fox and your campaign you got this.

    1. YES, AMEN! So happy to hear Fox just may be turning around and heading back to ‘FAIR AND BALANCED’ liked they once were!! A breath of fresh air… Laura Trump, Yeah👏👏👏
