Fox News' Guilfoyle up for White House press secretary job

The press secretary reportedly told members of the press in December that he didn't want to be the only face in front of the cameras, indicating that several members of the White House communications team would be in charge of running the press briefings on a revolving basis.

Press secretary Sean Spicer is no longer expected to give daily, on-camera briefings after President Donald Trump's first foreign trip, as the president weighs scaling back the embattled spokesman's public role, according to a fresh Politico report. It's a challenging job, and you need someone really determined and focused.

"I think I have a very good relationship with the president", Guilfoyle, the former first lady of San Francisco, told the Bay Area News Group.

Sean Spicer's role as press secretary took a vulnerable turn over the weekend when US President Donald Trump hinted that the man was not up for the pressures of the job.

"I think it'd be a fascinating job", she said.

The president's favorite apologist was at it again, devoting his hour-long show on Fox News Channel to a odd assortment of topics that had nothing to do with the blockbuster news on everyone else's lips.

Conversations about a retooling of the White House communications department have ramped up over the past week, Politico also reported, with an unnamed source saying 'the status quo won't continue'. While out of office during his military leave, he was also spotted hiding in - sorry, around - bushes near the White House to avoid talking to reporters.

David Frum, a former speechwriter for George W. Bush, said on Twitter that the White House typically sees press briefings as an exercise in getting their message out, and if they chose to stop doing them it would be because they were no longer effective in doing that.

What's more, another official said that the Trump administration is planning on reducing its number of televised briefings in general, which reflects a broader dissatisfaction with his communications team on the president's part. She gave two of the most important briefings of the months-old Trump administration, addressing reporters when FBI Director James Comey was sacked on May 9. Spicer then answered some questions off-camera surrounded by the foliage.

Spicer has not commented on the speculation about his job, though he has continued to hold press briefings with reporters this week.

Asked what he thinks of Trump presidency, Putin said it's up to the American people to judge but his performance can only be rated "only when he's allowed to work at full capacity", implying that someone is hampering Trump's efforts.

Meanwhile, Spicer stood to the side as Trump took questions from reporters.

On Tuesday she released her own statement which seemed to cast doubt on what many USA media outlets seemed to be portraying as a probability.

Fox News is the preferred network of Republican and conservative viewers as its commentators - including Guilfoyle - are largely positive in their assessments of Trump.
