Fox News confirmed a report Friday that their popular host Kimberly Guilfoyle had left the right-wing conservative network in a statement that is being described as “terse.”
Here’s what Fox News said
The statement released Friday was perfunctory and brief.
“Fox News has parted ways with Kimberly Guilfoyle,” the statement read.
Guilfoyle had been a longtime co-host of “The Five,” but a reports that she was dating the recently divorced Donald Trump Jr. have been followed by new career opportunities.
“Number one up-and-coming political figure”
The 49-year-old will reportedly join the pro-Trump non-profit organization, America First Politics, according to CNN. The report appeared to be confirmed through a tweet by a Trump Jr. spokesperson.
“Having [Kim Guilfoyle] on the trail campaigning with [Donald Trump Jr.] for Republicans this fall is a win for the entire GOP,” Surabian tweeted.
“Kim is one of the most influential voices in the #MAGA movement and knows how to light up a crowd,” he added.
Trump Jr., who is 40 years old, has been a prolific fundraiser and defender of his father’s agenda and legacy.
Guilfoyle recently praised Trump Jr. as “the number one up-and-coming political figure for sure, on the right.”
“He has a compelling political voice; he is incredibly bright,” Guilfoyle added. “I have seen him at these different rallies, and I went to Montana with him. I’ve known him for over a decade.”
Guilfoyle was once married to the former mayor of San Francisco, Gavin Newsom, who is now running for the governor’s office in California.
