President Donald Trump’s latest press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, promised she’ll never lie in her first formal news conference from the White House briefing room on Friday.

It was the first time a White House press secretary has held a televised briefing for reporters since March 11, 2019. McEnany’s predecessor, Stephanie Grisham, never briefed on camera.
