Donald Trump Appoints Stephanie Grisham White House Press Secretary
President Donald Trump on Tuesday named Stephanie Grisham - until now the spokeswoman for his wife Melania - as chief White House press secretary.
The appointment, announced by Melania Trump on Twitter, replaces the outgoing Sarah Sanders, who has been sharply criticized for rarely briefing journalists who cover the White House.
Grisham will also hold the more strategic post of communications director, the first lady tweeted.
"I am pleased to announce @StephGrisham45 will be the next @PressSec & Comms Director!" Melania Trump wrote.
