As Trump reshapes his administration, hes looking for people who are ready to be part of that television White House
Donald Trump’s favorite TV network is increasingly serving as a West Wing casting call, as the president reshapes his administration with camera-ready personalities.
Trump’s new national security adviser, John Bolton, is a former UN ambassador, a White House veteran – and perhaps most importantly a Fox News channel talking head.
Bolton’s appointment, rushed out late on Thursday, follows Trump’s recent effort to recruit Fox guest Joseph diGenova for his legal team – an idea now seemingly scrapped. Bolton went on Fox to discuss his selection and said it had happened so quickly that “I think I’m still a Fox News contributor”.
Another recent TV-land addition to the Trump White House is veteran CNBC contributor Larry Kudlow as top economic adviser. Other Fox faces on Trump’s team: rising state department star Heather Nauert, a former Fox News anchor; communications adviser Mercedes Schlapp and treasury department spokesman Tony Sayegh. The latter two are both former Fox commentators.
