“Fox & Friends” host Brian Kilmeade said President Donald Trump should further empower his children, after an anonymous White House source wrote a scathing op-ed for The New York Times Wednesday.

“I thought it was very interesting that [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell didn’t run to defend the president yesterday,” Kilmeade said Thursday. “If I were the president, this is what I would do. I would get the people I could trust, which majorly is family, who have been very effective in Jared Kushner, Ivanka, if you want to bring Eric in. And I would put them in on almost all key meetings.” (RELATED: ‘Fox & Friends’ Nails NBC For Cohen Wiretap Story: ‘Completely Wrong’)

Kilmeade said Trump should continue having experts advise him but claimed his family is in the unique position of having seen him succeed throughout the years.


“Have your foreign policy experts, have your domestics experts, your economy experts, the secretary of the Treasury, but have your kids there who know you and understand there’s a reason why he became a multi-millionaire billionaire,” Kilmeade continued. “There’s a reason why he ran for one office and won it. It’s the most prestigious office. He’s different. He’s a little eccentric. He’s unorthodox, but he gets it because he’s getting results.”

These comments come on the heels of a Wednesday New York Times op-ed written by an anonymous senior official in the administration, detailing how certain staffers are trying to hinder the president’s agenda in order to save the country.

“Whoever this person is, quit,” co-host Steve Doocy said. “You don’t like him, quit. Nobody elected this person. … Just quit your job if you hate the guy so much.”
