Ellis is serving as the campaign’s senior legal adviser, reports NBC News.
On her own social media, Ellis called the designation of the Stonewall Inn as a national monument a “celebration of sin.”
She criticized director J.J. Abrams’ move to include more LGBTQ characters in his films, saying “Why not also a Muslim? Or a pedophile?”
Ellis more recently criticized CNN’s LGBTQ town hall.
While NBC counted more than 30 appearances on Fox programming in the year before Ellis joined Trump’s campaign, Fox spokesperson Carly Shanahan insisted that Ellis is “not” a former Fox contributor and “has never been part of this network.”
“Jenna Ellis is a conservative who has been an ardent advocate for our founding Judeo-Christian principles, religious liberties and our Constitution,” the Trump campaign told NBC News in a statement.
“It’s not surprising that as a new advocate for (Trump), she is under attack by the liberal media. Jenna has a keen legal mind and the … campaign values her input and counsel,” he added.
