Trump Considering Appointing THIS Fox News Anchor To His Admin.
Donald Trump is currently hard at work figuring out who he’ll appoint to his administration. Now, it has been revealed that he is strongly considering making a Fox News anchor part of his cabinet.
It’s safe to say that nobody was expecting THIS to happen!
Fox News host Eric Bolling has discussed the possibility of taking a position in Donald Trump’s administration, two sources with knowledge of the discussions tell POLITICO.
The position being discussed is in the Department of Commerce, though nothing has been offered yet.
Bolling, a co-host of “The Five” and an early Trump supporter, was spotted at Trump Tower in New York City on Wednesday by the press pool and may have visited again on Friday.
“At this time I can’t confirm anything,” Bolling told POLITICO. “I’m sure you understand.”
Should he take an official working position with the Trump transition or administration, Bolling would be out of a job with the Fox network. Fox Business recently cut ties with host and contributor Anthony Scaramucci after he was added to the Trump transition team as an economic adviser.
Bolling has a degree in economics from Rollins College in Florida, and completed a fellowship at Duke University in public policy. He’s a former commodities trader and served five years on the board of directors at the New York Mercantile Exchange. He was part of CNBC before joining Fox News 2008.
Lew Eisenberg, the Republican National Committee finance chair, is considered a frontrunner for the position of Secretary of Commerce. He is expected to meet with Trump on Saturday.
A Fox News spokesperson said they did not have anything further to add. Spokespeople for the president-elect did not respond to requests for comment.
