Sarah Sanders to leave White House

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who fiercely defended President Trump as White House press secretary and presided over the end of the daily news briefing, will leave her post at the end of the month, Trump announced Thursday.

Sanders’s departure caps off a tumultuous, two-year run as Trump’s top spokeswoman, marked by tensions with the press corps and questions about the White House’s credibility. During that time, however, Sanders became one of Trump’s closest aides as well as one of the few remaining people from his 2016 campaign.

In his announcement, which was made on Twitter, Trump praised Sanders as a “very special person with extraordinary talents” who could one day run for governor of her home state of Arkansas, where he said she will return after departing the White House.

Trump called Sanders on stage at a White House event minutes after tweeting out the news to laud her as a “warrior” who did an “outstanding job.”
