President Trump is on his fourth White House press secretary.
Campaign spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany will fill the role as Stephanie Grisham moves back to the East Wing, according to the New York Times.
McEnany’s hiring is the first major personnel move by chief of staff Mark Meadows, who recently resigned from Congress to take the White House position. It’s unclear whether McEnany will revive the White House daily briefing. In her nine months in the role, Grisham did not hold any news briefings, preferring to let Trump speak for himself.
McEnany, 31, has been a staunch defender of Trump, frequently appearing on television, which the president has seen as a vital duty of his spokesperson. She is a graduate of Harvard Law School and a former spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee. McEnany has also been a CNN commentator. More
