Former Fox News Host Kimberly Guilfoyle Shares ‘Bitter-Sweet’ Announcement

Former Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle has announced on social media in a “bitter-sweet” post that she has officially left her network to join President Trump’s re-election effort.

The post clarifies rumors over the last few days about Guilfoyle leaving.

In the announcement, the former host said she will be taking on the role as Vice Chairwoman at America First, a pro-Trump political action committee.

“Today I have a bitter-sweet announcement. I’ve decided to leave Fox News Channel and dedicate myself full time to joining America First as Vice Chairwoman, campaigning across the country and firmly standing with President Trump,” she wrote in a pair of tweets.

Guilfoyle thanked her colleagues and “family” that she will be leaving.

“I will miss my Fox family. I thank Fox for the opportunities it has provided me. I thank all the talented producers, staff, and above all I thank the best fans out there.”

When the rumors first surfaced, a spokesman for Donald Jr. said that having Guilfoyle on the campaign trail would be a big “win for the entire GOP.”

“Having Kimberley Guilfoyle on the trail campaigning with Donald Trump Jr. for Republicans this fall is a win for the entire GOP,” said the spokesman. “Kim is one of the most influential voices in the #MAGA movement and knows how to light up a crowd.”

Guilfoyle and the first son began dating earlier this year. A source told Page Six back in May that the two had been seeing each other for “a few weeks.”

Some people who responded to Guilfoyle’s posts quickly expressed support amid the departure, congratulated her on the new position and assured that she would be missed:

The website for America First describes their super PAC as “dedicated to electing federal candidates who support the agenda of the Trump-Pence administration.”

It also said the group was “committed to creating an America where prosperity, safety, and strength reign–where hardworking people like you lead the charge with grit, determination, and pride.”

And, “Together, we continue to forge an America where opportunities are boundless – a first-place America where we ALL win.”

Thomas Hicks, Jr., Chairman of the Board of America First Action, welcomed Guilfoyle to the team in a statement on the website, calling her “one of the most highly sought-after television personalities in the country.”

“America First is delighted to welcome Kimberly to the team,” Hicks said. “It’s an honor to have such a talented woman and one of the most highly sought-after television personalities in the country help us achieve our objective—helping the President Make America Great Again.”

Guilfoyle responded: “Throughout my career as a prosecutor and journalist, I’ve seen a lot and shared many stories of tragedy, triumph, and everything in between—but never have I experienced anything quite like the energy the America First movement brings. I am grateful for this new and exciting opportunity to connect with the millions of grassroots supporters who believe in this administration.”
