Fox News officially has a new contributor. The right-leaning network recently announced that Lara Trump would be joining their team. The former producer is the wife of Eric Trump and known for making appearances on the news channel, according to Variety.

“I sort of feel like I’ve been an unofficial member of the team for so long,” said Trump on Monday morning while on Fox & Friends. “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.’”

Trump describes herself as a, “NC girl in NYC #MAGA” in her Twitter bio and took to the social media platform to speak about her new role.

“I was so excited to announce this morning that I am officially joining the @FoxNews team! Thank you @ainsleyearhardt, @kilmeade & @SteveDoocy for the warm welcome on @foxandfriends,”Trump tweeted.

Trump is a former producer of the syndicated celebrity news program Inside Edition, and is a graduate of North Carolina State University.

Despite her announcement about joining the team, Trump has made it clear that she is still thinking about running for public office. The new Fox contributor is hoping to take up a seat in the U.S. Senate in North Carolina and replace Senator Richard Burr.

While speaking with Fox host Sean Hannity on Tuesday about whether or not she is still thinking of running, her response was, “Yes, I am still considering it, absolutely,” according to The Hill.

According to theGrio, her father-in-law Donald Trump is still making headlines for his appearances.

TMZ reported that the former president attended a wedding on Saturday night at Mar-a-Lago and took the opportunity to blast President Joe Biden. He criticized how the current president is managing immigrants at the border.

“You saw what happened a few days ago? It was terrible and the border is not good. The border is worse than anyone has ever seen it,” said Trump. “And what you see now multiply it times 10… what’s happening to the kids, they are living in squalor… there’s never been anything like it…thousands of thousands of people coming up from South America…it’s a disaster, a humanitarian disaster from their standpoint and its going to destroy the country. And frankly, the country can’t afford it.”

According to a new ABC News/Ipsos poll 57% of Americans disagree with how President Biden is managing migrants at the border. Many are concerned that the detention centers are housing people too close together and the conditions are unsanitary.

“It’s a rough thing but do you miss me yet?” asked Trump as the crowd cheered.
