According to Stephanie Grisham, "He'll probably have some fairly draconian policies in place."
If Donald Trump stands for president in 2024 and succeeds, former White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham forewarned that he will be consumed by "revenge" and enact "quite draconian policies" throughout the federal government.
Grisham said in an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America" that she wants to "educate the public about the behaviors within the [Trump] White House because it does look like he's going to try to run in 2024." Grisham is the author of a forthcoming White House memoir that paints a particularly damaging portrait of Trump's time in office.
If he were to win, she continued, "I just want to warn people that after he takes office, he doesn't have to worry about reelection anymore. He will seek retribution. He'll undoubtedly enact certain policies that are quite harsh.
Grisham went on to state that "there were talks several times" among administration officials in which "people would say, 'That'll be the second term.'" Grisham also served as the White House communications director and former first lady Melania Trump's chief of staff and press secretary. The second term will begin then. In other words, reelection won't be a concern.
In 2019, Grisham took over as the new White House press secretary in place of Sarah Huckabee Sanders. However, in the nine months that followed, she attended no press conferences, making her the first president's top spokesman in American history to completely forgo public briefings. Grisham claimed on Sunday that Trump had told her not to speak to the media.
When we talked about me taking the job, [Trump] said he didn't think we needed any more briefings because Sarah had already discontinued them for roughly six months. He addressed the media directly two or three times per day, so my role in the print, regional, and local [media] would be to work more behind the scenes.
Requests for comment on Grisham's Monday comments were not immediately answered by Trump's post-presidential administration. However, the former president has repeatedly suggested in recent months that he will run for the White House again in 2024, even though he has not publicly declared his campaign. The former president is still intent on spreading the myth that President Joe Biden's election in 2020 was illegitimate.
In an interview with Yahoo Finance on Sunday, Trump said that if he were to run for reelection, he would defeat Florida Governor Ron DeSantis "like I would beat everyone else" in the Republican primary for 2024.
