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."
While I have enjoyed my time at CNN, I will be moving to a new role. Stay tuned next week!— Kayleigh McEnany (@kayleighmcenany) August 5, 2017
"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."
Watching CNN propaganda lovers lose their minds over "Trump TV" is very entertaining😂— Collin Rugg (@CollinRugg) August 6, 2017
Chances are Trump TV will get better ratings than CNN
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."
