Grisham was formerly Mrs. Trump’s spokesperson.
She “developed a reputation as a fierce defender of the first lady during her tenure as spokeswoman,” according to Fox News.
Former Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced her departure on June 13.
Big League Politics reported:
Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced her intention to resign from her position at the end of this month, and was invited on stage by President Donald Trump earlier today to speak briefly about her time in the White House.
President Trump invited Sanders on stage while holding a separate White House event today, and lauded the Press Secretary’s track record in the White House, and suggested he hoped would run for governor of Arkansas in the future.
Sanders responded by thanking President Trump for the opportunity to work in his administration in a touching speech, and explained that she intended to spend more time with her three children at home after leaving the position.
“She’s great, and she’s going to be leaving service of her country, and she’s going to be going, I guess you could say private sector, but she comes from a great state, Arkansas,” said President Trump. “She’s going to be going back to Arkansas with her great family, and her husband is a fantastic guy.”

President Donald Trump Pledges to Nominate A Woman as Next Supreme Court Justice
It’s going to be a woman.
President Trump revealed that he plans to nominate a woman as his next Supreme Court nominee during a rally on Saturday in North Carolina. The nominee, if confirmed, would replace longtime progressive judge Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who passed away on Friday.
Reports indicate that President Trump plans to announce the identity of a SCOTUS nominee on either Monday or Tuesday. He suggested as such during his North Carolina rally, confirming that the nominee would be a woman. The crowd could be heard chanting “fill that seat,” indicative of the strong desire among conservatives for President Trump to exercise his constitutional duties and advance a nominee.
TRUMP: "I will be putting forth the nominee next week.
It will be a woman!"

Amy Coney Barrett and Barbara Lagoa are considered to be strong candidates to fill the nomination, with the former almost being picked in 2018 to fill the vacancy ultimately filled by Brett Kavanaugh. Barrett is reportedly considered a front-runner in the selection process.
President Trump also cited the constitutional basis for nominating a Supreme Court justice, pointing out that Article 2 of the Constitution placed the imperative upon him as President to do as such. Republicans control both the White House and the Senate, a crucial difference from the divided government of 2016 when President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland was blocked by the Senate.

Democrats are guaranteed to fight furiously to block the confirmation of any Supreme Court nominee advanced by President Trump, with Chuck Schumer himself saying that he wouldn’t accept the possibility of any new justices while Trump is in office, even if it’s during his second term.
Tentative confirmation proceedings, which will occur in the midst of the Presidential election, have the chance to make Brett Kavanaugh’s wild confirmation process look like a gingerly walk in the park.
