'President Donald Trump announced on Thursday that White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders will leave the White House at the end of June with plans to return to Arkansas.
After announcing the news on Twitter, President Trump called Sanders up to the podium during a White House event in the East Room to thank her for her service.
“She’s done an incredible job and we’ve been through a lot together and she’s tough, she’s good,” he said as the room applauded.
“She’s a special person, a very, very fine woman. She has been so great,” Trump continued. “She has such heart. She’s strong but with great, great heart.”
Trump added lightly that he wanted her to run for governor of Arkansas.
“If we can get her to run for the governor of Arkansas, I think she’ll do very well,” he said as the audience laughed. “And I’m trying to get her to do that.”
Sanders also spoke, thanking the president for her position.
“This has been the honor of a lifetime, the opportunity of a lifetime. I couldn’t be prouder to have had the opportunity to serve my country and particularly to work for this president,” she said.
Sanders said she looked forward to spending more time with her family and her children, but she would “treasure” her time at the White House, calling it “one of the greatest jobs she could ever have.”
“In the meantime, I’m going to continue to be one of the most outspoken and loyal supporters of the President and his agenda. And I know he’s going to have an incredible six more years,” she said.'
