Sarah Huckabee Sanders reportedly planning to leave White House
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her deputy Raj Shah are planning to leave their posts in the coming months, a report said Wednesday.
Sanders has told friends that she expects to leave the White House by the end of the year while Shah has not determined his departure date, according to CBS News.
An administration source told the network that “there will be even more people leaving the White House sooner rather than later — laid off or just leaving out of exhaustion.”
Sanders issued a statement on Twitter Wednesday night that addressed the issue.
“Does @CBSNews know something I don’t about my plans and my future?” she wrote.
“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.”
The impending exits would put a gaping hole in President Trump’s communications shop.
Former communications director Hope Hicks, a close confidante of Trump, left her post earlier this year.
