White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is leaving her position this month, President Donald Trump announced Thursday.
“After 3 ½ years, our wonderful Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be leaving the White House at the end of the month and going home to the Great State of Arkansas,” the president said in a statement posted to Twitter.
“She is a very special person with extraordinary talents who has done an incredible job! I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas – she would be fantastic. Sarah, thank you for a job well done!”
Sanders became deputy White House press secretary at the start of the Trump Administration, and was named to her current post when then-Press Secretary Sean Spicer stepped down on July 21, 2017.
