Sarah Huckabee Sanders Leaving White House Job

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders speaks with the news media

President Trump tweeted that Sarah Sanders will be leaving the White House at the end of June.

"She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job", Mr Trump wrote. I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas - she would be fantastic.

Mrs Sanders is the daughter of Mike Huckabee, who served as the governor of Arkansas from 1996 to 2007. Add Trump Administration as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Trump Administration news, video, and analysis from ABC News. It isn't immediately clear who will replace her.

"She then joined the Trump campaign and, subsequently, the Trump administration as a White House communications aide".

Her last media briefing was held on 11 March - 94 days ago.

"Repeatedly the media resorts to personal attacks without any content other than to incite anger", Sanders said on August 2, during a heated exchange over Trump's repeated references to the media as "the enemy of the people".

Several other press and communications officials have recently left the White House, where the president's mercurial nature has often made it hard to speak with authority on his behalf.

"We've been through a lot together and she's tough, but she's good", Trump said at the event Thursday.

Sanders, for her part, has yet to issue a statement on the matter. "Thank you for your service to America and Donald Trump!".

Sanders took over Sean Spicer's role after he resigned the same day in July 2017. She faced online harassment, was ridiculed by late night comedians and was asked to leave a Virginia restaurant. Sources close to Sanders also said she would consider a political career in Arkansas, but not for a while.
