According to the Washington Post, Grisham was also a driving force between Trump's decision to fire former-deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel. Grisham, 42, has been First Lady Melania Trump's press representative since 2017, and she broke the news in a tweet on June 25. She had led the First Lady's Be Best campaign and organized her first major solo trip overseas past year. She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job! Mike Dubke, Anthony Scaramucci, Hope Hicks, and Bill Shine all held the White House communications shop's top job.
Grisham has sharply defended Melania Trump, sometimes making news in the process.
Ms Grisham replaced Sarah Sanders, who left the position last week after two and a half years. "Stephanie might not be the first name that comes to mind for this role, but she's the one person inside or outside the building who everyone nods their head and says, 'She'd be great'".
"When her husband gets attacked, he will punch back 10 times harder", Ms Grisham said in a statement on behalf of Mrs Trump. Grisham was the spokeswoman for Arizona attorney general Tom Horne, for the Arizona House of Representatives Republican caucus, and Arizona House speaker David Gowan.
"Stephanie was the travelling press secretary on the campaign and he loved her toughness", Sims writes.
Mr Trump seemed to suggest relations would not be as contentious under Ms Grisham's leadership.
During the Stormy Daniels scandal, as a silent first lady made few public appearances, Grisham fired off a tweet scolding rampant stories about the first couple's marriage.
Prior to joining Trump's team, Grisham had worked for Sen.
