The White House Press Secretary was an important job at the White House. Press secretaries, prior to the Trump Administration, acted as the primary spokesperson for the United States Government and the President, senior executives, and policies. Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the current White House Press Secretary, although she gives infrequent press conferences. President Donald Trump generally relies on Twitter to communicate directly with the American people.
