Who Is Stephanie Grisham? 5 Facts About White House Press Secretary

The first lady announced the move in a tweet a week after Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced that she would leave the post.

Stephanie Grisham, who has served as first lady Melania Trump's spokeswoman for over two years, will replace Sarah Sanders as White House press secretary and communications director.

Grisham has worked for the Trumps since 2015.

Grisham was viewed internally as the candidate with the best rapport with President Trump, a key requirement.

A source close to the Trump administration told the Daily Wire "Grisham is pure Trump", adding "she holds down the East Wing easily and has no loyalties to any faction within the Republican Party".

Last June when Mrs Trump was criticised for her choice of a jacket worn on a trip to a migrant child detention centre in Texas, Ms Grisham quickly lambasted U.S. media for focusing on the first lady's fashion choice.

"I don't believe Mrs. Trump has ever discussed her thoughts on anything with Mr. Giuliani", she said. She also worked on Mitt Romney's presidential campaign in 2012. Mike Dubke, Anthony Scaramucci, Hope Hicks, and Bill Shine all held the White House communications shop's top job. As a member of Trump's Arizona team, she helped arrange his campaign stops in the state, and then throughout the United States.

Trump has appointed Grisham both White House director of communications as well as press secretary, a senior White House official tells CNN.

Grisham was one of the rumored names to replace Sanders, who is returning to Arkansas with her family.

"Grisham is pure Trump", the source said.

In another instance, she issued an unusually tough statement about the departure of a deputy national security adviser from the White House.

She will become the Trump administration's third WH Press Secretary.

'I've learned a long time ago never to rule anything out, ' she said during a talk with reporters in her office in the West Wing.

Grisham was a political operative in Arizona before she joined Trump around a rally in Phoenix in 2015. Trump seemed to suggest relations would not be as contentious under Grisham's leadership.

During the Stormy Daniels scandal, as a silent first lady made few public appearances, Grisham fired off a tweet scolding rampant stories about the first couple's marriage.

It would be good if Grisham could work on the abundance of leaks coming out of the West Wing.
