According to Politico, Guilfoyle said in the California interview she'd be willing to take a pay cut and move to Washington for a possible White House job.

The Mercury-News asked Guilfoyle if she'd talked to Gavin since these job rumors started flying, and she said, "He was cracking up... he's like, 'Oh my goodness, you're a rockstar, you'd be fantastic, but oh man.' He was teasing me".

President Donald Trump plans to have press secretary Sean Spicer serve in a reduced and less visible role after his foreign trip wraps up next week.

"I think I have a very good relationship with the president", she told the Bay Area News Group. "It's a challenging job, and you need someone really determined and focused, a great communicator in there with deep knowledge to be able to handle that position".

"She was originally considered for press secretary during the presidential transition, but the job went to Sean Spicer, the former spokesman for the Republican National Committee", the NorCal news outlet writes.

Guilfoyle said her relationship with Trump as a reason why she could succeed as White House Spokeswoman.

Trump's decision led to a mad scramble by the White House communication's team following the announcement, leading to a widely-mocked moment where Spicer hid "among the bushes" as reporters sought answers about Comey's firing. And then, with a bit more obvious shade, "Very tough position he's in - I wish him the best, and I know he puts a lot of effort into it". Former White House press secretary Dana Perino is one of Guilfoyle's co-hosts on The Five.

However, some of Guilfoyle's remarks on her show last week seemed to indicate that, despite having kind words for Spicer, she believes he is not personally close enough to the president. Trump continued to dodge the question, and didn't make any assurances and instead said Spicer "gets beat up" by the media on a daily basis.

Six West Wing officials told the Times that Trump is dissatisfied with several top aides, especially Spicer, who the president kept out of the loop about the decision to fire Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey out of fear Spicer's staff would leak the news to media outlets.
