One of the most visible members of the White House may soon be making a departure.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders is reportedly calling it quits as is her long-time (for a Trump White House tenure) deputy Raj Shah.
The news comes from CBS News who noted that since the departure of former Communications Director Hope Hicks, Sanders has become closer to President Donald Trump.
Press secretary Sarah Sanders and principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah are both heading for the exits, according to sources inside the White House and close to the administration. Sanders, who has become a confidante of President Trump since the departure of former communications director Hope Hicks, has told friends that she plans to leave the administration at the end of the year.
No date for Sanders’ and Shah’s departures have been announced.
UPDATE: Sanders responded to the news, saying “I love my job.”
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
