Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be missed but something tells me she will not be gone from the political debate for long.
Trump seems to think she may run for office in Arkansas. She would be a formidable candidate should she choose to go that route.
The base loves and with good reason. She took everything the media could throw at her and she is still standing and going out on her terms. She will be missed. (See Video Below)
From Fox News: Trump’s announcement came moments before he made remarks at a White House event on its “Second Chance” program boosting hiring of criminals who have served their sentences.
“We’ve been through a lot together and she’s tough, but she’s good,” Trump said at the event Thursday.
Sanders called serving the president an “honor of a lifetime” and said she “couldn’t be prouder” of the administration’s work.
“I’ve loved every minute, even the hard minutes,” Sanders said at the event, calling her role the “most special experience” of her life second only to being a mom of three.
Sanders, 36, and the daughter of former Arkansas Republican Gov. Mike Huckabee worked on her father’s presidential campaign during the 2016 Republican primary until he dropped out of the race.
She then joined the Trump campaign and, subsequently, the Trump administration as a White House communications aide. She was promoted to White House press secretary in 2017, after the president’s first top spokesman, Sean Spicer, resigned from the position.
If she chooses to follow in her father’s footsteps the seat for governor opens up in 2022.
Throughout her tenure at the White House, Sanders has come under fierce criticism from members of the press for being dishonest on the president’s behalf during press briefings that were often contentious and emotional.
Eventually, the press secretary stopped giving daily briefings altogether at the suggestion of the president who said the press covered her “rudely and inaccurately.”.
“I’m going to continue to be one of the most outspoken and loyal supporters of the president and his agenda and I know he’s doing to have an incredible six more years and get a lot more done,” Sanders said.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders is leaving White House at the end of the month.
