Kimberly Ann Guilfoyle (born March 9, 1969) is an American television news personality and former prosecuting attorney in San Francisco. A Republican, she became an advisor to the 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump. Guilfoyle studied at University of California, Davis, and the University of San Francisco School of Law, where she earned a J.D. degree. She became a prosecuting attorney in San Francisco and Los Angeles, California. She was an assistant district attorney in San Francisco from 2000 to 2004. Guilfoyle married Democratic politician Gavin Newsom. She was first lady of San Francisco during Newsom's first two years as mayor of that city. He later served as governor of the state. She is the fiancée of Donald Trump Jr. She worked at Fox News from 2006 to 2018, and co-hosted The Five on the network. She later joined America First Policies, a pro-Trump super PAC, to campaign for Republicans in the 2018 midterm elections.
"The President is just gaining momentum, he's gaining support, and you know his resilience is unbeatable because he is unbreakable......The mugshot backfired on the Left in the form of surging donations, rising polls, and new supporters.....No picture, indictment, or trial date can take down the 45th and future 47th President." -Kimberly Guilfoyle; Kelly Grant Show; 3.31.23
As President Donald Trump heads into the 2020 elections, he faces a daunting gender gap: according to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll, he trails Joe Biden by thirty percentage points among female voters. As part of his campaign, Trump has been doing all he can to showcase female stars in the Republican Party, from nominating Amy Coney Barrett for the Supreme Court to naming Kimberly Guilfoyle, the former Fox News host and legal analyst, his campaign’s finance chair. Guilfoyle, however, may not be an ideal emissary. In November, 2018, a young woman who had been one of Guilfoyle’s assistants at Fox News sent company executives a confidential, forty-two-page draft complaint that accused Guilfoyle of repeated sexual harassment, and demanded monetary relief. The document, which resulted in a multimillion-dollar out-of-court settlement, raises serious questions about Guilfoyle’s fitness as a character witness for Trump, let alone as a top campaign official. --Jane Mayer; The New Yorker; The Secret History of Kimberly Guilfoyle's Departure from Fox 10.1.20
