On Thursday, Donald Trump announced over Twitter that White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders would be leaving her job by the end of the month.
“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!”
Sanders later tweeted, “I am blessed and forever grateful to @realDonaldTrump for the opportunity to serve and proud of everything he’s accomplished. I love the President and my job. The most important job I’ll ever have is being a mom to my kids and it’s time for us to go home. Thank you Mr. President!”
Sarah Sanders is the second White House Press Secretary under the Trump administration. The first Press Secretary was Sean Spicer, who served for 182 days from January 2017 to July 2017. Trump has not yet announced who Sanders’ replacement will be.
