Sarah Sanders leaving White House job; governor run ahead?

Trump said he's encouraging her to run for governor when she returns home to Arkansas, where her father once held the job.

As per the revelations in the final Mueller report, Sarah Sanders was found fabricating and asserting certain findings detailed by the Special Counsel in an act of unaccountably protecting the President.

Sorry to hear that Sarah Sanders is stepping down as Trump's press spokesperson.

Before joining the Trump campaign Sanders managed former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's 2016 presidential campaign.

Her relationship with the press corps became particularly strained a year ago after a comedian hired by the White House Correspondents' Association for its annual dinner mocked her appearance and penchant for spinning the truth as Sanders sat nearby at the head table.

According to the report, she said her statement "countless" FBI agents had contacted her to say they were happy Trump had fired former FBI Director James Comey was "not founded on anything".

Yeah, Trump has been president for TWO and a half years. "I have three wonderful kids and I'm going to spend a little more time with them". No successor was immediately announced, but the next press secretary will take over just as Mr. Trump is heading into the thick of a re-election campaign that will determine the fate of his presidency.

She has told colleagues and friends that she thinks running for office would be a good next move for her, instead of taking a television job upon her departure. In November past year, at his final rallies ahead of the congressional elections, Trump invited her on stage to speak briefly to the cheering crowds.

"I love the president; I love the team that I've had the opportunity to work for".

Sarah Huckabee Sanders has been a stalwart defender of Donald Trump's for almost two years. I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas - she would be fantastic.

Both poked fun at the fact that Sanders hadn't given a press conference in months and also had a habit of delivering a bunch of "Hucka B.S.", as Kimmel called it, when she did. "No one elected me to anything, they elected the president", she said.

The president did not name a replacement press secretary. I think she has been the best press spokesperson in modern times, as she has the ideal combination of unflappability and contempt for the contemptible press corps.

So much of Trump's administration has been about dismantling the USA government; from the EPA to the FCC, Trump has put in leaders whose entire philosophy was driven by profit over safety - and regulations only got in the way of that.
