According to a report by The New York Times, Grisham joined the Trump campaign in 2015 and is one of the last remaining aides from Trump’s campaign still serving in the White House. She will be President Trump’s third press secretary in less than three years.
Grisham will replace Sarah Sanders, who was considered as one of the most trusted aides of Trump. Sanders will step down from the post later this month.
