A Newsmax spokesperson confirmed Andrew Giuliani started working as a contributor this month.


He had appeared on Newsmax as a guest several times while he was still working at the White House, a Newsmax spokesperson said.

Like his father, Giuliani also worked in the Trump White House and the Newsmax job is, he said, a way “to continue the meaning” he had found during his time there.

In 2017, Trump hired Giuliani as an associate director in the Office of Public Liaison, a department that manages relationships outside interest groups. The next year Trump promoted him, even though Giuliani had his West Wing access revoked.

Last December, Trump also gave Giuliani a spot on the United States Memorial Holocaust Council. Giuliani has described Trump as a “father figure.”
