According to Politico, President Donald Trump’s longtime secretary at Trump Tower, Rhona Graff, has remained his primary intermediary, despite White House protocol.
Graff, who has worked for Trump since 1987, still receives phone calls on behalf of the president and passes along messages from those who wish to contact him, say several of Trump’s friends.
Despite living in New York, Graff has retained the responsibility of transferring phone calls to Trump’s secretary at the White House. Graff was also present at the time of the transitioning of powers, providing Trump’s current secretary with the proper ins-and-outs of working under the new commander-in-chief.
Roger Stone, a former advisor to the president, said that Graff provides a service for those who believe “the system in Washington will block their access.” Stone, who says he still contacts Graff before speaking with Trump, told Politico, “She’s a woman of excellent judgment who reflects her boss’s views. She has to field requests from a lot of people.”
Another friend of Trump’s measured the level of trust the president places in Graff by saying “If I wanted to get something to Trump without calling his cellphone, I’d send it to Rhona.”
White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters quickly dismissed reports of this arrangement between Trump and Graff. “All correspondence goes through the White House,” Walters said.
