Grisham has long been rumored as the presumptive favorite to take the Press Room podium and will become the third press secretary to serve President Donald Trump, following Sean Spicer then Sanders.
Melania Trump tweeted:
I am pleased to announce @StephGrisham45 will be the next @PressSec & Comms Director! She has been with us since 2015 - @potus & I can think of no better person to serve the Administration & our country. Excited to have Stephanie working for both sides of the @WhiteHouse. #BeBest— Melania Trump (@FLOTUS) June 25, 2019
