Stephanie Grisham to be next White House press secretary

Melania Trump’s media liaison Stephania Grisham named new White House Press Secretary

On June 13, President Donald Trump announced that Sanders was leaving the administration.

Stephanie Grisham, a former deputy press secretary to President Donald Trump who has been serving as communications director for First Lady Melania Trump, has been selected to replace outgoing White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Grisham, 42, a fixture in the Arizona Republican Party, was one of Trump's first hires for his presidential campaign - as a press aide in 2015.

She will travel as press secretary on the president's trip to the G-20 in Osaka, Japan, this week. She had been with the White House since Trump's inauguration, and had taken over the duties of press secretary after Sean Spicer's resignation in July 2017. Trump seemed to suggest relations would not be as contentious under Grisham's leadership.

The press secretary for the president of the United States is one of the most hard positions to hold, always being at the wrath of millions of Americans who oppose the policies of the commander in chief.

The president also spoke warmly of Grisham later Tuesday. It was his wife who said in a tweet that her trusted aide was switching jobs. She would never say, 'I'm keeping Stephanie, " the source familiar who was said to be familiar with the selection process said. "I will miss her honest love of country & great sense of humor at the @WhiteHouse - no matter what the future holds, I wish her (and her lovely family) the very best!"

Sanders, who will leave the White House on Friday, also tweeted out her support for Grisham.

According to Melania Trump, Grisham will remain her spokeswoman, meaning she will be press secretary of both the West and East wings of the White House.

It remains to be seen whether Ms Grisham will resume the traditional White House press briefings, which have been few and far between under Mrs Sanders.

The president subsequently touted Sanders as a potential candidate on stage as he kicked off his own 2020 re-election campaign. In the Trump White House, the position of Communication Director has been held by five people.

"She actually gets along with the media", the president told reporters.
