Sarah Sanders Addresses The Report That She’s Leaving The White House

Hannah Bleau

On Wednesday, CBS News reported that Sarah Sanders would be leaving the White House by the end of this year.

Two of the most visible members of the Trump administration are planning their departures, the latest sign of upheaval in a White House marked by turmoil.

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.

Shah is also considering his exit, but he has not yet settled on an exact date. Neither Sanders nor Shah responded to repeated requests for comment before this story was published.

As you can see, the original report was very…um…unconfirmed.

Sarah Sanders addressed the report on Twitter.

I really hope this means she’s not leaving, because DAYUM we need her.
