White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham will be departing her role, CNBC has reported.
She will become First Lady Melania Trump’s Chief of Staff.
FLOTUS’ previous Chief of Staff, Lindsay Reynolds, recently departed the role to spend more time with her family.
Grisham became Press Secretary and White House Communications Director in July 2019. Previously, she was Deputy Chief of Staff for Melania Trump and a press aide on the Trump 2016 campaign.
The shake-up comes amidst the arrival of new White House Chief of Staff and former Congressman Mark Meadows.
It’s suspected that Meadows is looking to bring on his former congressional communication director Alyssa Farah who is serving as Press Secretary for the Defense Department.
Meadows could also be considering hiring Trump campaign Spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany, who previously worked at Fox News and CNN, for the Press Secretary role.
