Sources have reported to the political media outlet The Hill that Donald Trump is carefully considering offering the position of press secretary within his administration to conservative media star Laura Ingraham.
Ingraham was an outspoken booster of the Trump for president, assisting him in preparation for debates, and giving a strong pro-Trump speech at this year’s Republican National Convention.
During the 1990s, Ingraham was part of a collection of conservatives, which included Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, Conway’s deputy David Bossie, and Matt Drudge of the media outlet The Drudge Report, who vigorously reported on the Clintons’ corruption.
As of this writing, Trump has formally appointed RNC chair Reince Priebus to be his chief of staff, and Trump presidential campaign chief executive officer Steve Bannon to be a ‘Senior Adviser.’ Kellyanne Conway, who provided invaluable service to Trump his campaign’s manager and frequent spokesperson, reportedly has been offered an undisclosed position within the President-Elect’s administration.
During the campaign for the White House, Ingraham addressed the media in a speech before the RNC, saying, “To all my friends up there in the press, you all know why in your heart Donald Trump won the Republican nomination. You know it,’ she said. ‘You know why he won it? Because he dared to call out the phonies, the frauds and the corruption that has gone unexposed and uncovered for too long. Do your job.”
Ms. Ingraham has a long and distinguished career in law and the media. After graduating with a law degree from the University of Virginia School of Law, Ingraham worked as a speechwriter for the administration of President Ronald Reagan. She served as a law clerk for Judge Ralph K. Winter Jr. of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and then clerked for United States Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
After working for the prominent law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, she made the media world her professional home. She has hosted shows and made appearances on various networks, including CBS, MSNBC, ABC, and Fox.
She is the author of five books, in which she vigorously expounds on her conservative views, and hosts the long-running radio talk show The Laura Ingraham Show. She also runs the conservative news site LifeZette.
