White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is reportedly making plans to leave the White House before the end of the year.
According to CBS News report published Wednesday, Sanders has reportedly told friends about her plans to depart the Trump administration. The report says that deputy press secretary Raj Shah is also reportedly considering a White House exit, but has not yet decided on a departure date.
“Does @CBSNews know something I don’t about my plans and my future? I was at my daughter’s year-end Kindergarten event and they ran a story about my ‘plans to leave the WH’ without even talking to me. I love my job and am honored to work for @POTUS,” Sanders tweeted.
Sanders previously worked on the Trump campaign, later in the White House she was the deputy press secretary until then-press secretary Sean Spicer resigned.
Shah worked for the Republican National Committee (RNC) during the 2016 campaign season before joining the Trump administration.
Sanders and Shah would be the latest in a series of communications officers to leave the White House.
Communications director Anthony Scaramucci was fired last summer, and his successor, Hope Hicks, resigned earlier this year.
Other communications aides were also fired from the administration in recent weeks as part of the effort to curb leaks.
In a June 6 interview with CNN, Sanders was asked whether she’s enjoying her job.
“I am. And even in moments when I come on CNN because I love our country,” she told Chris Cuomo.
“And you’re OK with how you’re doing it?” Cuomo asked.
“I mean, I think things are going pretty well. Again, I think that the country is moving in the right direction and it’s doing that under the President’s leadership,” she responded.
“And I’m proud to be a part of that,” she continued.
“And I think some really great things have happened over these first 500 days. And I think a lot of great things are going to take place over the next 6 and a half years.”
