Grisham – who also served as head of communications at the White House and former Media Media chief executive Melania Trump and journalist – went on to point out that “there was a lot of talk” between officials in “people who said, ‘That’ I’ll be the second term. second term. ‘That is, we will never worry about elections again. ”
Grisham replaced former White House journalist Sarah Huckabee Sanders in 2019 but never held a press conference in the next nine months to replace him – making him the first presidential spokeswoman in American history to avoid public disclosure. On Sunday, Grisham said it was Trump who instructed him not to confront journalists.
“When we discussed myself taking this job, [Trump] he has already suspended the hearing for about six months under Sarah, and said he does not think we will need to be mentioned again, ”Grisham said. “He spoke to reporters two or three times a day. [media]. ”
The Trump administration’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Grisham’s comments on Monday. But the former president – who remains focused on continuing to lie that President Joe Biden’s 2020 election was a sham – has repeatedly said in recent months that he will run for White House again in 2024, even though he has not officially declared his candidacy.
Trump has raised speculation over Sunday’s re-election, telling Yahoo Money in an interview that he will beat Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis – a competent 2024 Republican candidate – “like I would beat everyone else” if he considered running for a second term. .
