Kimberly Guilfoyle leaving Fox News and may join Trump super PAC

Kimberly Guilfoyle, "The Five" co-host who has often defended President Donald Trump, will reportedly leave the network to focus on helping Republicans in the 2018 midterm elections.

Kimberly Guilfoyle became a former co-host at Fox News on Friday after the cable news network confirmed that they had parted ways with the popular news pundit.

A Fox spokeswoman confirmed her departure Friday.

She joined the network 2006, and served as a host on a series of shows, from Outnumbered to, most recently, The Five.

A person familiar with the plans who was not authorized to speak publicly about them said Guilfoyle will be joining America First PAC, which has been promoting Trump's record. She said in 2017 that she had been in conversations with the White House for the role of press secretary, though people familiar with the matter told CNN at the time there were never any serious discussions.

Guilfoyle put Fox News in an ethical dilemma earlier this year when she started dating Donald Trump Jr., President Trump's son.

As per a tweet from Vanity Fair correspondent Gabriel Sherman, Don Jr.'s girlfriend of mere months is leaving her post at Fox News. "It doesn't get prettier than this", Trump Jr. said, alongside pictures of Guilfoyle.
