Grisham will begin her role as Chief of Staff with immediate effect.

After less than a year on the job, White House press secretary and communications director Stephanie Grisham is stepping down, according to senior Trump administration officials.

Grisham entered voluntary quarantine after learning she had been exposed to two or more people who later tested positive for covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, during a March 7 dinner at Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club. She has publicly criticized the press a number of times, asserting that the media does not regularly cover the president's successes.

The rise of the coronavirus briefings has essentially left Trump playing the role of his own press secretary. "My replacements will be announced in the coming days and I will stay in the West Wing to help with a smooth transition for as long as needed".

"I continue to be honored to serve both the President and First Lady in the Administration", said Grisham in the release.

Grisham will be returning to her previous role in the administration as First Lady Melania Trump's chief of staff. Grisham will succeed Lindsay Reynolds, who resigned earlier this week.

The job of press secretary has been a turbulent one since Trump entered office.

The White House did not immediately name a successor for Grisham, who has also held the job of communications director. She also appeared on on smaller conservative outlets including One America News Network and Sinclair Broadcast Group.

"This president will always put America first, he will always protect American citizens".

Through her tenure as press secretary, Grisham never gave a traditional briefing, saying they had become "a lot of theater". The White House Correspondents' Association has argued that the daily briefings are essential for conveying information to the public, even as the president routinely answers questions.

Among the names floated as potential successors to Grisham are Kayleigh McEnany, national press secretary for Trump's 2020 campaign.
