Raj Shah has created history as the first Indo-American to hold press gaggle. He holds a key post in the US White House, the Principal Deputy Press Secretary. He gaggled with media staffs who were on board Air Force One the presidential chopper. Shah became the first Indo-American entitled to this privilege, as quoted by the Indian Express.
Raj Shah was promoted to the post of the Principal Deputy Press Secretary by President Trump in September this year. This was a part of the restructuring of his press office that witnessed Hope Hicks being selected as the Director of Communications.
Shah was on board Air Force One with President Trump accompanying him to Missouri. Trump delivered a crucial speech regarding relief for business tax and middle-class tax here. Shah is the highest ranking Indo-American till date in the Press Office of the White House. He held gaggle with the onboard press reporters on this occasion.
Gaggle is the word for an informal briefing by the Press secretary of the White House. This is on record but prevents video graphing by the reporters. The duration of the gaggle held by Raj Shah was for around 12 minutes.
