US President Donald Trump announced Thursday that White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders will step down at the end of June, without giving reasons for the decision.
“After three and a half years, our incredible Sarah Huckabee Sanders will leave the White House at the end of the month and return to the great state of Arkansas,” he said in a message on his Twitter account.
Thus, he has said that “he is a very special person with extraordinary talents that has done an incredible job”. “I hope she decides to run for governor of Arkansas, it would be fantastic, Sarah, thank you for a job well done,” she said.
Sanders, 26, has been criticized for the drastic cut in the number of daily press conferences at the White House, the last of which took place 94 days ago.
The absence of press conferences has been replaced by the almost daily appearances of Trump before the press and by his announcements on politics through the social network Twitter.
In this way, Sanders had gone from being a spokesman for the White House to a figure closer to the advisory, given his presence in high-level meetings at the White House, according to the Reuters news agency.
The speculations that emerged after Trump’s announcement point to a possible candidacy of Sanders by the Republican Party for governor of Arkansas, a position that his father, Mike Huckabee (1996-2007), already occupied.
