Team Trump has a new platform on which to connect with supporters through social media, and former CNN commentator Kayleigh McEnany returned to the RNC to espouse campaign-like news segments broadcast from Trump Tower.

On Saturday, the pro-Trump commentator announced on Twitter that she was leaving CNN for a "new role."

"Thank you for joining us as we provide you the news of the week from Trump Tower here in New York," McEnany began her broadcast for the Trump campaign's Facebook page.

After reporting on recent administration achievements like improving the economy and praising the introduction of the 'RAISE' Act, which purports to reduce poverty, McEnany signed off on her segment, saying, "I'm Kayleigh McEnany and that is the real news."

The former U.S. ambassador to Russia felt the segment was a bit unsettling in nature.

Was it all part of an elaborate plan?

As much as we hear from the opposition, praise for the Team Trump news segment made their voices heard.

Though the sources of funding for the campaign-style videos remain dubious, they haven't been officially endorsed by the government.

Political analyst Jeff Greenfield attempted to abate the tension by explaining that McEnany's video was part of a "long tradition, if not entirely noble tradition, of political campaign propaganda."
