Kayleigh McEnany, formerly a CNN contributor paid to defend President Trump on air, is joining the Republican National Committee as its national spokesperson.

"Kayleigh will be an integral part of our party's ongoing commitment to promoting the Republican message to Americans across the country," RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said Monday in a statement. "Her wealth of experience will be invaluable to the RNC as we continue to support President Trump and build on our majorities in Congress as we head into 2018."

The RNC said McEnany will be the RNC's chief spokesperson on TV and radio.

McEnany announced Saturday on Twitter that she was leaving CNN. The following day, she was featured in a campaign-style video promoting Trump on the president's personal Facebook page.

Before joining CNN, McEnany sometimes served as a conservative guest co-host on ABC's "The View."

"I am excited to be joining the RNC at such an important and historic time in our country," she said in the statement. "I'm eager to talk about Republican ideas and values and have important discussions about issues affecting Americans across this country."
