Kellyanne Conway, the counselor to President Trump, appeared on “Fox & Friends” Friday morning and revealed that the president really enjoyed his Thursday interview on the network, more than anybody would have guessed.
“The president has said he would like to perhaps come once a month and as news breaks,” Conway said. “He’ll keep us guessing.”
The “Fox & Friends” hosts were taken aback before responding.
“Wait, come to Fox & Friends once a month?” said Steve Doocy, one of the hosts. When Conway confirmed it the hosts, celebrated briefly before Conway continued to clarify.
Speaking of Trump’s interview discussing Michael Cohen from the day before, Conway said “the president wanted to do that. The president had a great time bringing his case directly to the American people as he does on social media.”
“The president was able to cover so much ground with you yesterday and appreciated the platform because it connected him with the American people.”
The president is a big fan of the “Fox & Friends” morning show and has tweeted his support and admiration for the program many times.
On February 20th, Trump tweeted “Thank you to @foxandfriends for the great timeline on all of the failures the Obama Administration had against Russia, including Crimea, Syria and so much more. We are now starting to win again!”
Trump was a regular on the show back in 2011, starring in a Monday morning segment called “Monday Mornings with Trump.” A promo for the segment said “bold, brash and never bashful, the Donald now makes his voice loud and clear every Monday on Fox,”
On Thursday, President Trump joined “Fox & Friends” over the telephone to discuss the current investigation into his personal attorney, Michael Cohen. In the interview, Trump distanced himself from his long-time attorney who has been accused of shady financial and business practices.
“This has nothing to do with me,” Trump said during the telephone interview. “I’m not involved and I’ve been told I’m not involved.”
Trump did, however, reveal that he was aware of the $130,000 payment Cohen made to adult film star Stormy Daniels a couple months before the 2016 election.
“Like with this crazy Stormy Daniels deal, he represented me and you know, from what I see, he did absolutely nothing wrong. There were no campaign funds going into this,” Trump said.
Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenetti, said that the revelation Trump made on Thursday was damaging to his case since it provides evidence of knowledge of the transaction. Trump previously denied any knowledge of the non-disclosure agreement.
