First lady Melania Trump announced on Tuesday that her Director of Communications, Stephanie Grisham, was being promoted to be the next White House Press Secretary and Communications Director.

Grisham also found herself under the spotlight when in June 2018 Melania Trump flew to visit detained children at the Texas border while wearing a jacket which carried the apparently heartless slogan: "I really don't care".

"I can think of no better person to serve the Administration & our country", Mrs Trump wrote on Twitter.

"Excited to have Stephanie working for both sides of the @WhiteHouse", Mrs. Trump said.

Another rumor indicated that then-White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer banished Grisham to the East Wing after a short stint with the main press office following the work she did with the 2016 campaign and Trump's transition team, a tale that turned out to be untrue.

Sanders announced her plans to step down as White House press secretary earlier this month.

Melania Trump's tweet said: "I am pleased to announce @StephGrisham45 will be the next @PressSec & Comms Director!"

She will travel as press secretary on the president's trip to the G-20 in Osaka, Japan, this week. Those events have become increasingly rare under Sanders; there hasn't been a formal daily press briefing in more than three months, with President Trump mostly addressing press questions in quick-hit moments before boarding Marine One on the White House lawn. "I will miss her honest love of country & great sense of humor at the @WhiteHouse - no matter what the future holds, I wish her (and her lovely family) the very best!"

Grisham, 42, a fixture in the Arizona Republican Party, was one of Trump's first hires for his presidential campaign - as a press aide in 2015.

Outgoing Press Secretary Sarah Sanders praised the move. Last November, Grisham issued a statement that "It is the position of the Office of the First Lady that (deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel) no longer deserves the honor of serving in this White House".

'Sarah has done a fantastic job, she'll be governor. She's tough as nails.
