Donald Trump’s former press secretary Kayleigh McEnany has been slammed by her fellow conservatives for her support of Mike Pence.

Ms McEnany, who is now a Fox News host, praised Mr Pence’s recent interview with fellow Fox presenter, Sean Hannity.

“Excellent interview with vice president Mike_Pence on seanhannity. His patriotism, love for the country, and love for his Savior [sic] on full display,” she tweeted.

She was subsequently criticised and called a “traitor” by Trump supporters. Former Trump 2020 campaign staffer, Kingsley Cortes, tweeted: “This is what endless Murdoch News does to a person.”

“Used car salesman,” the pro-Trump Twitter account Catturd2 also wrote.

Meanwhile, former president Donald Trump has vehemently denied that he had an affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels as he faces a potential indictment for paying money to keep their affair quiet.


The former president decried New York County District Attorney Alvin Bragg for investigating the payment and criticised the US Department of Justice.

“The district attorney of New York under the auspices and direction of the Department of Injustice in Washington, DC, was investigating me for something that is not a crime, not a misdemeanour, not an affair,” he said.

Mr Trump held his first major campaign rally in Waco, Texas, where he proceeded to insult Ms Daniels with an epithet he has used in the past.

The former president also described the 2024 presidential race as “the final battle” in a speech focused on personal grievances and legal woes at his first rally of the campaign in Waco, Texas, on Saturday.

“If we don’t win this election in 2024, I truly believe our country is doomed,” he said.

“This is really prosecutorial misconduct, that’s what it’s called. The innocence of people makes no difference whatsoever to these radical left maniacs,” Mr Trump said of the investigations into him.
