White House expected to name Trump’s fourth press secretary

Donald Trump is expected to name his campaign’s press secretary as the new White House press secretary April 7, 2020.

Kayleigh McEnany is currently the national press secretary to the Trump campaign.

She will replace Stephanie Grisham.

Grisham was previously deputy press secretary under Sean Spicer before moving over the Melania Trump’s office.

She will reportedly return to Melania Trump’s office as her chief of staff.

After her stint under Spicer, Grisham replaced Sarah Sanders as White House press secretary and White House communications director in July 2019.

The move is apparently tied to the installation of Donald Trump’s new chief of staff, Mark Meadows, a former representative from North Carolina.

McEnany will be Trump’s fourth press secretary in less than four years.

Under Sanders and Grisham, the White House did not hold a regular daily press briefing in over a year.

Only after the coronavirus pandemic became big news were briefings resumed — but some have accused Donald Trump of grandstanding at them and leveraging them to benefit his campaign.
