Kayleigh McEnany announced her departure as a CNN commentator on Saturday. A day later, she appeared on in a video on Donald Trump’s Facebook page, reports Variety.

The 90-second-long video titled “Weekly Update 8.6.17” was broadcast from Trump Tower. It praises the president for jobs, the economy, the Raise Act — which is Trump’s controversial “merit-based” immigration bill — and veterans, says Variety. 

For the segment, McEnenay is sitting in front of a blue backdrop with the “Trump Pence” logo. She signs off the video with,”I’m Kayleigh McEnany, and that is the real news.” Trump and his administration targeted traditional media during both his campaign and presidency as “fake news.”

McEnany is an outspoken Trump supporter. The video was also posted on the “Official Team Trump” Twitter account.
