Arizona politico Stephanie Grisham will be the new face of the Trump administration after being named White House press secretary.
Grisham had previously been serving as First Lady Melania Trump’s communications director. She will replace Sarah Huckabee Sanders, whose resignation was announced earlier this month. She will also take over the role of former White House communications director Bill Shine, whose position has been vacant since he left the job in March.
Numerous Beltway media outlets had pegged Grisham as a top contender for the job from the moment the White House announced Sanders’ pending departure. As an early member of Donald Trump’s campaign, his transition team and his administration in the White House, she has long held the president’s trust. The New York Times described her as a “loyal and sometimes combative press secretary” to the first lady.
