In the year since they began dating, Guilfoyle has grown closer to the Trumps. She is now a vocal supporter of the president's politics.


Former Fox News Host, Kimberly Guilfoyle announced she has joined President Donald Trump‘s re-election campaign this week. The announcement comes almost a year after she began dating his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.

Guilfoyle had been working with the pro-Trump super PAC America First Action from her days as a host on Fox News. She has now underlined her commitment to Trump's campaign on Instagram.


“America’s continued success depends on @realDonaldTrump getting re-elected and continuing his #MAGA policies,” she wrote alongside a photo of her with the president and Don Jr. “That’s why I am absolutely THRILLED to announce that I’ll be joining the Trump campaign as a Senior Advisor! It’s time to get to work and WIN for America in 2020!”

Guilfoyle, 50, was first linked to Don Jr., 41, last May. Page Six reportedly broke the news that they were dating.


Earlier in the same year, Don Jr.’s wife, Vanessa Trump, filed for divorce. They finalized their split at the end of the year and Vanessa publicly supported Don Jr.’s relationship with Guilfoyle.

In the year since they began dating, Guilfoyle has grown closer to the Trumps. She has become even more vocal about her support of the president’s politics.


She celebrated her 50th birthday at the family’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida. Guilfoyle then returned to the resort to spend Easter with Don Jr.

Don Jr. has become one of his father’s most visible surrogates. He has defended his father on cable news and on social media and hyping him up at various rallies.


Much like his father, he is an emphatic tweeter. He also often receives massive backlash to his posts. Guilfoyle has joined her boyfriend to campaign for the Republicans as well.

Last September she appeared at a Republican fundraiser. At the fundraiser, President Trump reportedly made a joking at the expense of her ex-husband Gavin Newsom, a Trump opponent.

As the book "The Hill to Die On" recounted the event. The book says “there was some awkward, tepid laughter around the room.”
