Sarah Sanders to Leave White House, Donald Trump Announces in Unexpected Tweet

U.S. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders speaks with the news media in Washington White House spokeswoman Sanders leaving job at end of month Sarah Sanders speaks to reporters at the White House in Washington

Announcing her departure on Twitter, President Donald Trump said Sanders will return to her home state of Arkansas and floated the possibility of a gubernatorial run for the White House press secretary.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders is leaving at the end of June.

"Sarah, thank you for a job well done", the president added.

Sanders' tenure was a rocky one marked by sometimes-ugly clashes with with the White House press corps - famously CNN's Jim Acosta - and Democrats' accusations of spreading falsehoods.

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. It isn't immediately clear who will replace her.

Sanders also disappeared largely from the public eye in recent months, holding only two of the once-daily White House press briefings since the beginning of 2019.

In his tweet announcing Mrs Sander's pending resignation, Mr Trump wrote that he hoped she would run for the same position.

Trump leaves China tariff deadline open, calls relationship 'testy'
Chinese authorities say the United States is exaggerating security concerns to block a potential competitor. The arguments for Xi to meet Trump mostly revolve around the need to prevent greater economic damage.

"Repeatedly the media resorts to personal attacks without any content other than to incite anger", Sanders said on August 2, during a heated exchange over Trump's repeated references to the media as "the enemy of the people".

Sanders took over Sean Spicer's role after he resigned the same day in July 2017. She wants to spent time with her family and three young children.

Sanders will return home to the U.S. state of Arkansas, he said.

Sanders, for her part, has yet to issue a statement on the matter.

"She would be fantastic", he said.

This story is developing and will be updated as new information becomes available.
