Report: Anti-Vax Trump Adviser Steve Cortes Has Been Let Go by Newsmax

Steve Cortes, formerly a financial professional on Wall St., became an important surrogate to Donald Trump. The adviser to the former president often appeared on cable news arguing on Trump’s behalf.

And since Trump has been out of office, Cortes had been hosting a show on Newsmax. That has now come to and end. According to sources, one of the many factors for the departure was his resistance to vaccine mandates.

The Daily Beast’s Asawin Suebsaeng reports:

“Tensions between Cortes and the MAGA cable network had long been simmering, sources suggested, but it was the Trump loyalist’s vehement disagreement—which he wasn’t shy about publicly voicing—with Newsmax’s company-wide vaccine rules that was the final straw.”

Cortes tweeted in early November. “I will not comply w/ any organization’s attempt to enforce Biden’s capricious & unscientific Medical Apartheid mandate. I will not be forced into the injection, nor will I disclose my vaccination status. No one should be pressured to choose between medical privacy & their job.”

There were also issues with the pundit’s continued push of Trump’s election lies. A staffer noted, “He still insists the election was stolen.”
