"Join Kayleigh McEnany as she provides you the news of the week from Trump Tower in NY!"

On Sunday, the official Twitter account for Team Trump tweeted that McEnany would be bringing "the news of the week" to the American people.

Now have a look at the sort of stuff McEnany said in her role as paid CNN Trump propagandist: "Buried beneath the salacious headlines is the portrait of a president who has defied his party, not only in word but in action". She left the network this weekend, a source with knowledge of the situation told NBC News, asking to leave in order to pursue another opportunity.

So, what do you think about the "real news" on President Donald Trump's personal Facebook page?

CNN reported that it's unclear whether the videos are funded by Trump's re-election campaign or the RNC. She gives explicit credit to Trump for this, saying "President Trump has clearly steered the economy back in the right direction".

She also trumpets the introduction of the "RAISE" act, which she says will reduce poverty and save taxpayers 'billions'.

RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel added that McEnany will help the RNC continue to solidify the GOP's support for and message around President Trump's successes moving into the 2018 midterm elections.

"Wow. Feels eerily like so many state-owned channels I've watched in other countries", wrote former USA ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul.

The president also signed major legislation last week slapping sanctions on Russia, Iran, and North Korea - although Trump blasted parts of it as unconstitutional.

Some have criticized the videos as political propaganda.

Defenders: In the comments, one sentiment is familiar among supporters: Because of media bias, "it is sad but necessary to have to broadcast President Trump's achievements in this manner", wrote one supporter. Everyone agreed that McEnany's "real news" was not, in fact, news at all.

"This is what Trump wants the news to be like".
