Longtime Trump aide Stephanie Grisham will succeed Sanders as press secretary

Longtime Trump aide Stephanie Grisham will succeed Sanders as press secretary”

A top aide to Melania Trump will be the next White House press secretary and communications director, the first lady has announced on Twitter.

Sanders, who announced earlier June that she will depart the White House at month's end, said that Grisham "will be an incredible asset to the President and the country".

The announcement of such a visible member of the Trump Administration's communications team from the First Lady is a unique twist to this announcement, but given that the First Lady is giving up her own press secretary to her husband, perhaps this was a nod to Ms. Trump.

Grisham was viewed internally as the candidate with the best rapport with President Trump, a key requirement. Grisham will be accompanying the president on his G20 trip to Japan this week.

Grisham succeeds Sarah Sanders, whose last day at the White House is Friday.

Melania Trump announced the development in a tweet to close out the president's search for a press secretary after Sanders made a decision to resign and go back home to Arkansas earlier this month. She previously worked on Mitt Romney's 2012 campaign. Stephanie will do a phenomenal job. "#BeBest", Mrs. Trump tweeted on Tuesday afternoon.

"Proud to have another mom and a great friend in this role", added Sanders.

It's unclear whether there will be a press conference introducing Grisham.

Within two days, Ricardel had been dismissed from the White House by the President and Melania Trump had staked claim that she and her staff are not to be tangled with. Those events have become increasingly rare under Sanders; there hasn't been a formal daily press briefing in more than three months, with President Trump mostly addressing press questions in quick-hit moments before boarding Marine One on the White House lawn. She won't talk to us anymore, ' he quipped, praising his exiting press secretary.

Sanders is contemplating a political future in Arkansas, considering a 2022 run for state governor, a position once held by her father, Republican Mike Huckabee. After Trump took office, Grisham served as deputy press secretary in the West Wing during Sean Spicer's tenure.
