After the promotion of the new White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, there are four women in lead communications roles throughout President Donald Trump’s administration.
Per the Daily Caller:
The new White House Press Secretary joins a communication team of other female officials leading shops in their own departments.
Heather Nauert, a former Fox News anchor, began representing the administration as the State Department spokesperson back in April. Nauert covered both foreign and domestic news and events for the channel, including the 9-11 terror attacks, the war in Iraq, and the genocide in Darfur, Sudan.
At the Justice Department, Sarah Isgur Flores is the Director of Public Affairs. Isgur Flores, previously a campaign surrogate for Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina and later the political director for Texans for Ted Cruz during the 2016 primary, is a graduate of Northwestern University and Harvard Law School, where she was the President of the Harvard Federalist Society. She later went on to clerk for Judge Edith Jones of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. Prior to going to DOJ, she served as Deputy Communications Director at the Republican National Committee.
Finally, Dana W. White serves as the assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs. A long-time D.C. political communications professional, White previously served as a staff member on the Senate Armed Services Committee. Additionally, White was a foreign policy adviser on the 2008 presidential campaign of Arizona Republican Senator John McCain. White later went on to be director of the Washington Roundtable for the Asia-Pacific Press at The Heritage Foundation and a publicist for the Fox News Channel.
Liberals on Twitter quickly attacked the accomplishment:

That's to soften his image. The same way he uses Ivanka and Kellyanne. 🤔

Dressing up liars in pretty clothes just makes the lies seem less harsh. Kellyanne did it during the campaign. It's a strategy, not equality
