Report: Trump weighing Fox News’ Monica Crowley for press secretary
President-elect Donald Trump is considering tapping Fox News analyst Monica Crowley as his press secretary, according to Politico.
Crowley, who is also a regular columnist for the Washington Times, was an early and vocal supporter of Trump. Politico noted that she warned Fox not to underestimate Trump when he launched his presidential bid last year.
But Laura Ingraham, another contender for the job, is still jockeying for the position. The conservative radio host also wants to expand the position by having a bigger role in policymaking, according to sources cited by Politico.
Ingraham recently confirmed on “Fox News Sunday” that she was under consideration for the gig.
“It’s an intriguing idea,” she said.
Trump has said he appreciated Ingraham’s loyalty throughout the campaign. Ingraham helped Trump during his campaign with debate preparation, campaigned on his behalf and offered occasional strategic advice.
