Fox News has announced they’ve signed Trump to appear regularly on the channel as a contributor.
It is not former President Donald Trump joining the cable news giant, however.

Instead, Lara Trump — the 45th president’s daughter-in-law — appeared on Fox & Friends on Monday and was welcomed “to the family” by Fox News star Ainsley Earhardt.
“I’m so excited, first of all, to be joining the Fox family,” Lara Trump said. “I sort of feel like I’ve been an unofficial member of the team for so long.”
“You guys know, it was kind of a joke over the past five years, I would come there so often that the security guards were like maybe we should just give you a key.”
Fox News’ Steve Doocy asked Laura Trump about her ambitions on a possible Senate run in North Carolina. Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., is not running for re-election, and Lara Trump has repeatedly expressed interest in the job.
Lara said she was still considering a Senate run and would decide “soon.”
“Fox has been very generous with me. They have said, look, if that’s something that you ultimately decide to do, they’re going to work with me on that front and make sure that everything all the rules are followed and we do everything properly,” she said.
“So thank you to the Fox team for allowing me to have the possibility that that’s in the future.”
Lara, who is married to Eric Trump, is the first Trump family member to join Fox News. But many other former Trump administration officials have signed recently with the cable news giant. Former economic adviser Larry Kudlow, and former press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
