Could Kimberly Guilfoyle Become Press Secretary?

While no official announcement has been made, Donald Trump has been unhappy with his current press secretary – and his press team in general – and he has generally shown an affinity for Guilfoyle .
The New York Times is reporting that Trump has floated Kimberly Guilfoyle’s name for the job multiple times. In fact, she was rightly reported to have been offered the job earlier – before Spicer – but turned it down. This claim is supported by a statement made by Fox news is Bob Beckel.
However, this time it appears more likely that Guilfoyle may take the position and become Press Secretary.
