Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle has been spotted entering Trump Tower, ground zero for the president-elect’s transition team, and is expected to return again this week to discuss the position of White House press secretary.
Fox News contributor Laura Ingraham is also under consideration for the job, which Kellyanne Conway has already turned down.
According to Politico, the Trump administration is expected to finish selecting top White House staff by the end of the week.
Guilfoyle, a Latina, is a host on Fox News’ The Five, and a former assistant district attorney in San Francisco.
“Do you want a white male representing the White House when half the country thinks the President is a misogynist?” said a member of Trump’s inner circle who hopes the position will go to Guilfoyle. “Who do you want talking about immigration? A Latino. When you have to make decisions about pro-life justices, do you want a man or a woman?”
Another selling point for Guilfoyle is that she has friendly relationships with many of the people who are closest to Trump, including his daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner.
