Scoop: Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle to Appear on ‘The View’
Donald Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son, is set to appear on the ABC panel show “The View” in November to promote his forthcoming book, “Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us,” according to two sources familiar with the show’s booking.
Joining him on the program will be Kimberly Guilfoyle, the former Fox News host who is now serving as a senior adviser to the Trump campaign and has been dating Trump Jr. for more than a year.
Their appearance on “The View” will mark the first time they’ve been interviewed together on a network television program. It’s also the first time either has appeared on “The View.”
Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle will be guests on the 5,000th episode of “The View” which has been on the air since 1997.
Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle aren’t likely to find a receptive panel greeting them on the show. Three of the co-hosts, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin, are progressives who have been outspoken with their criticism of President Donald Trump and Trump Jr. Behar has frequently been criticized by conservatives and Trump supporters for her comments about the president and Vice President Mike Pence.
The two conservative co-hosts of “The View,” Meghan McCain and Abby Huntsman, aren’t exactly expected to be a friendly audience, either. McCain’s late father, Sen. John McCain, was and continues to be a frequent target of the president and his supporters.
And while Huntsman’s father, Jon Huntsman, the former Utah governor and U.S. ambassador to China, served as Trump’s ambassador to Russia until recently, Abby Huntsman has been openly critical of the president and his administration, particularly in the past month as calls for impeachment have strengthened.
The prospect of a contentious interview has never stopped “The View” from booking a guest; in fact, the show thrives on contentious interactions whether among co-hosts or between co-hosts and guests.
Another Trump supporter will be appearing on “The View,” this coming week, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will be a guest on the program this Tuesday to promote his book “Trump vs China: Facing America’s Greatest Threat.”
