Stephanie Grisham Chosen as Next White House Press Secretary

Stephanie Grisham, who has served as first lady Melania Trump's spokeswoman for over two years, will replace Sarah Sanders as White House press secretary and communications director.

Ms Grisham, 42, has been a fixture in the Arizona Republican Party, and was one of Mr Trump's first hires for his presidential campaign - as a press aide in 2015.

Grisham is not only replacing Sanders, but also Bill Shine, who left as White House communications director in March. Grisham will be accompanying the president on his G20 trip to Japan this week.

"I can think of no better person to serve the Administration & our country", Mrs Trump wrote on Twitter.

She will be the third White House press secretary since Trump was elected. Sanders has served in the Trump White House since his inauguration, and previously was a top deputy in the press office. Since moving to the East Wing, she has developed a reputation internally as a trusted adviser and loyal defender of the first lady. Trump seemed to suggest relations would not be as contentious under Grisham's leadership.

Grisham also handled press for then-Attorney General Tom Horne when a former staffer alleged that Horne and his senior aides essentially ran his 2014 re-election campaign out of his official office while paid by taxpayers. But Grisham was President Trump's pick from the beginning, as he apparently wanted someone from his inner role in the position. "She is a rockstar and flawless to fill Sarah's shoes!" he said.

"In a subsequent tweet, he continued, ".She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job! "#BeBest" Trump posted on Twitter.

"While I know the media is enjoying speculation & salacious gossip, I'd like to remind people there's a minor child who's name should be kept out of news stories when at all possible", tweeted Grisham.

It is a smart move that the next press secretary will, like Sarah Sanders, be a working mom.

In 2012, the single mother worked on Mitt Romney's unsuccessful campaign against former President Barack Obama, according to FOX10 Phoenix. I'm trying to get her to do that, ' Trump said at the event.

Prior to joining Trump's team, Grisham had worked for Sen.
