A former CNN political commentator has become the host of US President Donald Trump’s News of the Week video on his personal Facebook page.

Kayleigh McEnany appeared in the post, with updates on key policy areas such as immigration and jobs from Trump Tower in New York.

Mr Trump has routinely labelled parts of the mainstream media as “fake news” since the 2016 presidential election.

The online weekly segment launched last week, fronted by his daughter-in-law.

Lara Trump opened it by saying: “I bet you haven’t heard of all the accomplishments the president had this week because there’s so much fake news out there.”

Both female hosts signed off by saying: “And that is the real news.”

Describing herself online as a Christian conservative Ms McEnany has regularly defended the president in CNN debates but tweeted on Saturday that she was leaving the channel.
