Press Secretary Sarah Sanders To Leave The White House

He added: "She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job!"

The next gubernatorial election in that state is in 2022.

Announcing her departure, the President said: "If we can get her to run for the governor of Arkansas, I think she'll do very well".

"You know, prior to Sarah becoming press secretary I used to be able to go in her office and she would give you details", Ryan explained.

Sarah, 36, is known for her statement that God "wanted Donald Trump to become president".

Huckabee might have to defend herself as unlike her father, who fled Arkansas for income tax-free Florida after his tenure.

Sanders assumed the role as press secretary after Sean Spicer left.

"The President urged me, like he has everyone in the administration, to fully cooperate with the special counsel".

She told reporters she wouldn't rule out a run for governor in her native Arkansas.

Sanders chose her date of departure "well in advance" of Thursday's announcement, one White House official told CNN's Jim Acosta.

Sanders' role developed into that of a senior adviser and confidante of the president, one who is regularly brought into senior-level meetings.

So much of Trump's administration has been about dismantling the USA government; from the EPA to the FCC, Trump has put in leaders whose entire philosophy was driven by profit over safety - and regulations only got in the way of that.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders was born in Hope, Arkansas on August 13, 1987.

President Trump mentioned he has high aspirations for his ex-secretary, including a possible governorship.
