White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders is leaving her post, President Donald Trump announced on Thursday. Sanders worked as deputy press secretary since Donald Trump took office in January 2017. In July 2017, Sanders replaced Sean Spicer as the press secretary. The news was announced by Trump via Twitter.

“After 3 1/2 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,” Trump tweeted.

“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!”

Speaking Thursday at the White House, Sanders said: “This has been the honour of a lifetime, the opportunity of a lifetime.”

“I couldn’t be prouder to have had the opportunity to serve my country and particularly to work for this president, he has accomplished so much in these two and half years and it’s truly been something I will treasure forever,” Sputnik quoted Sanders as saying.

Sanders hosted fewer news conferences than any of the preceding 13 press secretaries, and her last media briefing was on 11 March – 94 days ago, BBC reported.

Sarah Sanders’ father Mike Huckabee was governor of Arkansas from 1996 to 2007.
