Rion has been covering the President's re-election campaign for the network, as well as the White House and national security. 

President Trump last summer tweeted his favor for OANN as one of his new news outlets of choice after he took some issue with his coverage by Fox News.

OANN is the conservative news network launched by Herring Networks.
