President Trump has formally named former Fox News co-president Bill Shine as White House deputy chief of staff.

Shine was at the White House last Wednesda, and brings over two decades of experience to the role. "Previously, Mr. Shine served as Co-President of Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network", the statement reads.

The former co-president of Fox News will be the latest communications director in a post that has been often re-filled in President Trump's term.

Shine is reported to have lobbied for Fox News Channel to keep O'Reilly despite the allegations.

Shine resigned soon after, although he was never directly accused of sexual harassment. He is also now considering at least two potential U.S. Supreme Court nominees who have expressed opposition to abortion rights, has terminated the White House Council on Women and Girls, and has publicly derided a number of female journalists on the basis of their looks.

Since then, the communications job has evolved into a position that reports directly to the president, overseeing both the press and communications teams.

Speaking with The Daily Beast, Klayman said, "Mr. Shine has been alleged to have been involved in some way in at least three lawsuits involving sexual harassment of women at Fox News". And he is one of the top advisers to the most powerful person in the country.

Kelly also responded to Darla Shine on Twitter on Thursday evening.

The National Women's Law Center, another group staunchly critical of Trump, said "the President's choice runs counter to widespread efforts to address and prevent sexual harassment at this moment of reckoning". "Life. works in mysterious ways".

"On your marks, get set. how long till the liberal media and snowflakes start taking shots at the great Bill Shine", tweeted Donald Trump Jr.
