    President Donald Trump's campaign team has launched its own so-called "real news" series on Facebook to combat what Trump has called "fake news," NBC News reported.

    Former pro-Trump cable news commentator Kayleigh McEnany will host the show in front of a blue Trump-Pence-themed wall. 

    McEnany rose to political prominence during the 2016 election for her fiery exchanges in defense of Trump on CNN. She left the network over the weekend, a source told NBC News, asking to leave in order to pursue another opportunity.

    Her kickoff on what could be called "Trump TV" was shared with more than 22 million Facebook page followers and on Twitter. Trump's presidential campaign committee is listed as having paid for the news spot; they did not respond to a request for comment.
