President Donald Trump on Tuesday named Stephanie Grisham - until now the spokeswoman for his wife Melania - as chief White House press secretary. In addition to succeeding Sanders, Grisham will also take on the duties of White House communications director, a job that has been vacant since March. She has been with us since 2015 - @POTUS & I can think of no better person to serve the Administration & our country. Grisham served as a press aide during Trump's 2016 campaign and, upon his victory, was appointed deputy to then-Press Secretary Sean Spicer. "She's tough but she's good".
As Trump mulled who he'd like to replace Sanders anonymous rumors of sex, laziness and criminal behavior have spread around White House, according to the Washington Examiner.
Principal Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley, who was interested in the position, quickly tweeted his support for Grisham.
It remains to be seen whether Ms Grisham will resume the traditional White House press briefings, which have been few and far between under Mrs Sanders. On the day she announced she was leaving, she had not briefed the press in more than three months.More news: Qantas adds 10 Airbus jets to order, will take 36 A321XLRs

"Mrs. Trump's life story is an inspiration to millions of mothers and female entrepreneurs, and to me personally", she said. "She is a rockstar and flawless to fill Sarah's shoes!" There is no clearer signal being sent that the First Lady is playing a larger role in the administration than the announcement of this decision.
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. The president later tweeted the jacket's message was aimed at the press. "There aren't a lot of people who have a lot of regular interaction with both of them". She'll be returning to the state after a family vacation. You know, like the White House press corps has a habit of doing for the television cameras.
"In a subsequent tweet, he continued, ".She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job! If Sanders does run for governor, she would have the advantage of name recognition.
