According to The Washington Examiner:

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham started her tenure on the right foot with the White House press corps — the same foot she pivoted off to shove North Korean guards aside so reporters could cover President Trump and Kim Jong Un.

Grisham won applause from journalists excited to see her take decisive action Sunday ensuring coverage of the historic meeting in the Korean Demilitarized Zone.


Olivier Knox, the president of the White House Correspondents’ Association, expressed gratitude, saying in a statement, “I’m sorry for any bumps or bruises, but very grateful to Stephanie for her intervention on behalf of the U.S. press corps."


The clash happened shortly after Trump shook hands with Kim Jong Un and became the first sitting president to walk across the border into North Korea. Grisham ensured journalists could observe a subsequent pool spray by Trump and Kim, before the men held private talks.

Grisham can be seen in the video urging journalists to rush past her as she created a diversion with her scuffle with the North Korean guards.
