White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded via a tweet to a CBS News report Wednesday that she was planning to leave the White House by year’s end.
Here’s what the report says
According to sources that spoke to CBS News, Sanders told friends she plans to leave by the end of the year.
After the report was published, Sanders responded with a tweet from her official social media account, but she didn’t appear to directly deny it.
“Does [CBS News] know something I don’t about my plans and my future?” she posted.
“I was at my daughter’s year-end Kindergarten event and they ran a story about my ‘plans to leave the WH’ without even talking to me,” she added. “I love my job and am honored to work for @POTUS.”

The CBS report says that they sought a comment from Sanders and didn’t receive one. The report also said that principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah was planning to leave his position in the Trump administration.
If the report is accurate, Sanders would be the second press secretary to leave the position after Sean Spicer who resigned in July 2017.
Sanders has been a combative and dedicated spokesman for President Donald Trump and his policies, which has made her the target for much of the ire from the mainstream media. Her energetic interactions with the media have often made headlines, especially those with journalists April Ryan and CNN’s Jim Acosta.
