Kimberly Guilfoyle, best known as co-host of Fox News' The Five, revealed in an interview with Bay Area News Group on Monday evening that she has been in conversation with President Donald Trump's administration to take over the role of White House press secretary. If Guilfoyle were to step into the position she would be replacing current press secretary Sean Spicer, who has been oft-criticized since taking the mantle in January.
“Sean Spicer is a very nice man and a patriot; he’s dedicated himself to this public service,” Guilfoyle said. “Very tough position he’s in — I wish him the best, and I know he puts a lot of effort into it.”
She went on to speak about her own thoughts on taking over the position. “I’m a patriot, and it would be an honor to serve the country,” Guilfoyle said. “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.”
Guilfoyle's name was reportedly raised by Trump himself in recent meetings, according to reports by The New York Times.
