Former Trump campaign advisor Steve Cortes is reportedly leaving his role as prime-time host at Newsmax after he refused to comply with the network’s vaccine mandate and repeatedly criticized it on social media.
Cortes, who co-hosts Cortes & Pellegrino, a weeknight show with former White House correspondent for One America News Jenn Pellegrino, will be leaving the network in the upcoming days, The Daily Beast reported.
Cortes was hired just six months ago, but sources told the outlet that his relationship with the right-wing network had been largely strained by his relentless comments that the 2020 Presidential election was rigged, and Cortes & Pellegrino’s floundering. His refusal to take the vaccine was seemingly the last straw.
The veteran news pundit had voiced on social media his discontent with Newsmax’s requirement of proof of vaccination, which followed President Joe Biden’s executive order forcing companies with 100 or more employees to obtain proof of vaccination from their workers or subject them to weekly testing and masking.
