White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is leaving the administration, President Donald Trump announced in a Thursday tweet.


"After 3 1/2 years, our wonderful Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be leaving the White House at the end of the month and going home to the Great State of Arkansas," Trump announced.

"She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job," Trump argued, despite her rarely holding press briefings.

"I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas - she would be fantastic," Trump argued.
