Fox News has once again worked its magic as the Trump administration’s golden parachute, bringing on former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. According to Politico, Pompeo will serve as a regular analyst for both Fox Business News and Fox News throughout the day.

Pompeo, 57, is already a frequent guest on the network. He’s slated to make his debut Friday on “Fox And Friends.” 

“Mike Pompeo is one of America’s most recognized and respected voices on foreign policy and national security issues,” Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott said. “I look forward to his contributions across our range of platforms to share his distinct perspective with our millions of viewers.”

He joins Kayleigh McEnany, Trump’s former press secretary. Fox News revealed last week that McEnany would be co-hosting “Outnumbered.” Fox News also recently hired Lara Trump, who is married to Donald Trump's son Eric Trump.

A former House representative from Kansas, Pompeo has hinted at ambitions beyond working as a news commentator. He’s signaled he might run for president in 2024 if Donald Trump does not run, and has made a networking trip to the key state of Iowa.

Pompeo has been a prominent defender of the former president, drawing applause with a speech during February’s Conservative Political Action Conference.

He released a statement about joining Fox News. 

“I intend to give viewers a candid, no-nonsense look at geopolitics, international relations and the America first policies that helped chart the course for unprecedented American prosperity and security,” Pompeo said.
