Melania Trump recently announced that her spokesperson Stephanie Grisham will rejoin the East Wing as the new Chief of Staff.

Stephanie Grisham was just appointed as Chief of Staff of the East Wing, after serving as communications director and press secretary for both the president and first lady.


On April 7, Melania Trump gladly welcomed her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, as part of the full-time East Wing members, where she will serve as Chief of Staff. The first lady said:

“She has been a mainstay and true leader in the Administration from even before day one, and I know she will excel as Chief of Staff.”

Trump also thanked Lindsay Reynolds, who previously occupied the position, for her excellent service for the past years and wished her the best in what is to come. On the other hand, Grisham said:


“I continue to be honored to serve both the President and First Lady in the Administration. My replacements will be announced in the coming days.”

Grisham previously held three titles under the current administration -- as White House press secretary and communications director, and as the first lady’s communications director.

The White House has been busy trying to manage the COVID-19 pandemic that has infected hundreds of thousands of Americans and over one million individuals globally.

As part of their efforts to curb the spread of the deadly virus, Trump urged Americans to wear face masks and take the precautions seriously.



COVID-19 knows no discrimination in choosing a host body to infect, which makes everyone a possible victim of the virus.

Among the many who contracted the disease is Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s wife, Sophie Gregoire.
