Lara Trump, 51, wife of Eric Trump and daughter-in-law of former President Donald J. Trump, hasn’t shied away from speaking her mind. In fact, she has made quite a name for herself as a Fox News political commentator.

Following years of appearances on shows like “Hannity,” “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and “The Ingraham Angle” as a Trump campaign senior advisor, the former producer and story coordinator of CBS’ “Inside Edition” finally cemented her place with Fox News.

In March of this year, Lara came onboard as an on-air contributor. She has appeared on “Fox News Primetime” a number of times since then and serves as co-host of “The Big Saturday Show” and “The Big Sunday Show” in addition to contributing to a number of other programs, including “Fox and Friends” and “Fox Files.”

It’s unclear just how much Lara earns in her current role at Fox, but Fox News contributors usually earn anywhere from $61,655 to $67,195 annually, based on a report from one employee to Glassdoor. However, contributors’ pay is “largely subject to their personality and value they would generate,” revealed RedLasso, so it’s safe to assume she makes much more.

Trump’s net worth is an estimated $10 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, which seems small compared to her husband’s $300 million net worth.

In March, the contributor noted on “Fox and Friends” that she was still considering running for the North Carolina U.S. Senate seat in 2022. She later dismissed the idea, at least for the time being. “No for now, not no forever,” she said at the North Carolina GOP Convention on June 5, according to The Palm Beach Post.

Lara keeps herself busy — you can watch her on her video series and podcast, “The Right View with Lara Trump,” which airs a new episodes every Thursday.
