Political commentator Kayleigh McEnany was working at CNN until last week, when she tweeted out a cryptic message and showed up on President Trump’s Facebook page Monday morning.
“While I have enjoyed my time at CNN, I will be moving to a new role. Stay tuned next week!” tweeted McEnany, who was one of the few Trump supporters on a news network that openly delights in its battle with the president, who also takes obvious pleasure in denouncing it as “fake news.”
Now, McEnany can be seen on Facebook reporting facts about actions the Trump administration is taking in his quest to fulfill his many campaign promises, including fostering an economic atmosphere of growth, jobs and safety in the era of terrorism.
Appearing in front of a Trump background, McEnany spoke to Americans from Trump Tower in New York as she provided “the news of the week,” which included the recent jobs report.
“President Trump has clearly steered the economy back in the right direction,” McEnany said in the segment, announcing that the economy added 209,000 jobs in July, and the unemployment rate fell to 4.3 percent, according to Commerce Department numbers out on Friday. “Since President Trump took office, he has created more than one million jobs.”
Pointing to the numbers, Trump said that he was just getting started.
“On Wednesday, the president introduced the RAISE Act,” continued McEnany, noting, “For decades, a steady rise in immigration has depressed the wages of American workers.”
The RAISE Act legislation was announced last week by Trump and two conservative senators and is designed to drastically curb legal immigration to the United States. McEnany said the measure would increase wages, decrease poverty and “save the taxpayers billions.”
“American workers deserve a raise, and President Trump is finally putting the American worker first,” she added.
While I have enjoyed my time at CNN, I will be moving to a new role. Stay tuned next week!

Last week, President Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, hosted a “real news” program on his Facebook page in which she also talked about his successes that have been largely ignored by mainstream news outlets.
BuzzFeed first reported on the show, which launched when Lara Trump, wife to Eric Trump, posted from Trump’s Facebook: “Want to know what President Trump did this week? Watch here for the REAL news!”
The video opens with Lara introducing the weekly news show.
“I bet you haven’t heard about all the accomplishments the president had this week because there’s so much fake news out there,” she said at the beginning of the video. “We want to give a glimpse into his week.”
The ensuing program focused on Trump-centric topics such as his donating his salary and the growing economy. Lara refrained from covering the president’s banning of transgenders from the military and failed Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare.
McEnany’s report lets Americans know that Trump’s administration is doing so much more than just defending its team members against Russian collusion allegations. She instead talks about how the president’s policies have boosted consumer confidence and caused record highs on the stock market, and gave several other examples of winning.
McEnany signed off by saying, “That’s the real news.”
Trump supporters across social media praised getting some “real” news for once, while others panned the performance, calling it “propaganda.”
