The rumor mill is spinning with sources telling The Hill that Fox News contributor and conservative commentator Laura Ingraham could be the Trump White House’s press secretary. The publication added that the president-elect had appreciated Ingraham using her media presence and her website, Lifezette, to promote his candidacy. Ingraham also helped the then-Republican nominee with his debate preparation. She’s reportedly interested in the role:
Ingraham would not comment for this article. A source familiar told The Hill that she's in contact with people in Trump's inner circle and has expressed interest in the role.
The president-elect and his inner circle hold Ingraham in the highest esteem. They view her as tough, admire her rhetorical skills, and believe she'd powerfully convey Trump's anti-establishment message.
Selecting Ingraham would send a signal that Trump has no interest in softening his relationships with the Republican leaders in Washington, D.C.
Then again, he did select RNC chairman Reince Priebus to be his chief of staff yesterday.
