Baptism by fire: Stephanie Grisham’s eventful first days

WASHINGTON (AP) — She is President Donald Trump’s new top spokeswoman, but Stephanie Grisham barely said a word in what became her introduction to the world.

The president’s new press secretary and top communications aide received a baptism by fire over the weekend. Grisham accompanied the president on his high-stakes trip to Asia and had to throw her body into a fracas with North Korea security officials.

It was an early sign of how Grisham might reshape a role she didn’t technically start until Monday. The former Trump campaign staffer and aide to the first lady is stepping in her new job as Trump enters a stretch that may determine whether he gets another four years on the job.
