On Tuesday, June 25th, President Donald Trump announced who would be replacing Sarah Huckabee Sanders as White House Press Secretary.

Stephanie Grisham is a long-time Trump aide and is slated to begin her tenure in the job next month. Grisham, who is in her early 40s and the mother of two children, has worked in politics for awhile. She’s been a fixture in political communications in Arizona, worked for the Mitt Romney campaign in 2012, and has been with Trump since his campaign began in 2015.

Grisham served as the deputy press secretary under Sean Spicer and then moved over to the East Wing to work for communications under First Lady Melania Trump. Her official title will be Press Secretary and Director of White House Communications.

In light of her relationship with Melania, it was the First Lady who announced Grisham’s new job, on Twitter!

Sanders announced that she would be stepping down from the position she has held since July 2017, effective at the end of June. The Press Secretary position does not require Senate confirmation. If nothing crazy happens, Grisham should step right into the role on July 1st.
