Trump Names Kayleigh McEnany as New Press Secretary

President Donald Trump named a new press secretary on Wednesday after Stephanie Grisham left the role on Tuesday.

Kayleigh McEnany, the national press secretary for Trumps reelection campaign, will serve as White House press secretary after Grisham returned to the East Wing to serve First Lady Melania Trump as her chief of staff.

Alyssa Farah, who was press secretary for the Department of Defense, is also joining the White House as director of strategic communications.

A third addition to the team is Ben Williamson, the senior advisor to the White House chief of staff, who will work with McEnany and Farah as senior communications advisor.

Farah said in a statement that she was honored to join the White House during “a critical moment in our nations history.”
