Press secretary Sarah Sanders is leaving the White House, Trump says

WASHINGTON (AP) – White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders is leaving her position at the end of the month, this according to the White House.

In a pair of tweets on Thursday, President Trump said Sanders would be leaving the White House at the end of June to return home to Arkansas.

“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!” Trump tweeted.

Sanders is one of the president’s closest and most trusted White House aides and one of the few remaining who worked on his campaign.

Her tenure was marked by a breakdown in regular White House press briefings and questions about the administration’s credibility.

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s revealed that Sanders admitted to investigators that she had made an unfounded claim that “countless” FBI agents had reached out to express support for Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey in May 2017.
