Donald Trump's latest press secretary on Friday promised reporters during her first briefing to never utter a lie from behind the familiar blue lectern with the White House seal behind it.

"I will never lie to you. You have my word on that," Kayleigh McEnany, a former Trump campaign spokeswoman, told reporters during the first formal briefing by a press secretary in over a year.

The president, now on his fourth press secretary, has uttered over 18,000 false or misleading statements, according to a Washington Post analysis that is updated regularly.

His first two press secretaries, Sean Spicer and Sarah Huckabee Sanders, were accused of making false and misleading statements anytime they held formal press briefings. His third, Stephanie Grisham, never held a former briefing in the James S. Brady Briefing Room.

But Ms McEnany did appear to contradict her new boss, saying he is "driven by data" a day after he said how he "feels" often is more important to him when making major decisions than "what I think."
