Donald Trump is very loyal to his supporters. And now, official reports show that famous conservative radio host Laura Ingraham is Trump’s top choice to be his White House Press Secretary.
Ingraham, who gave a great speech at the RNC convention, has been a Trump supporter for years. Her defense of Trump’s position on immigration and putting America first helped convince millions of her radio listeners during critical stages of the Republican presidential primary. Ingraham is also an attorney and former Supreme Court law clerk, and has spent many days helping Trump prepare for his debates against Hillary Clinton.
She used her profile as a Fox News contributor, her nationally syndicated radio show and her website LifeZette.com to advocate on his behalf. Trump also tapped into Ingraham’s years of dirt-digging on the Clintons to sharpen his attacks on the Democratic nominee.
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.
