White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, who recently admitted that she had made false statements to the public following the release of the Mueller report, would leave her position by the end of this month. The news came into light when the President tweeted, mentioning that Sanders’ is set to leave the administration on June 30, moving to her hometown.
The 36-year-old American, who is also a political advisor, is the third woman to have reached up to the position of being a White House secretary. The media and the opposition leaders have continuously scrutinized Sanders for her shielding of President Trump from suspicions of obstruction.
As per the revelations in the final Mueller report, Sarah Sanders was found fabricating and asserting certain findings detailed by the Special Counsel in an act of unaccountably protecting the President. One of the most important moments was her defending of the fact that the President did not order for the firing of then-FBI Director James Comey. However, Trump admitted the fact, describing his frustrations over the FBI’s investigation on his campaign.
Throughout her tenure, Sarah Sanders fulfilled her duties and responsibilities efficiently. It has been largely anticipated that after her departure, the White House press secretary would return to her home in Arkansas. On Thursday, President Trump praised her as a “warrior” for all that she has done during her term, despite the ongoing accusations and never-ending controversies.
Observing her extraordinary talents and her potential, Trump brought in the probability that Sanders might run for the governor of Arkansas even though he is left with no chief public defenders as of now. However, the possibility is tough, as Sanders could not run for the governor’s post in Arkansas until the next four years, unless the existing Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who was re-elected in 2018, steps down.
When asked upon sharing her experience as a White House press secretary before departure, Sarah Sanders said that she “will treasure forever” whatever she learnt, calling her role “the honor of a lifetime”.
“I couldn’t be prouder to have the opportunity to serve my country and particularly to work for this President,” Sanders said.
“I’ve loved every minute — even the hard minutes,” she added.
Despite not conducting a single White House briefing for the reporters in the past 95 days, yet Sarah Sanders remained a reliable public face of the administration. She stood by Trump as a diamond in the rough, defending his every move, becoming one of the most influential persons, who responsibly acted as a spokesperson for the Trump administration amid various criticisms.
