Sarah Sanders had been the press secretary for Donald Trump since May 2017, and she had been a key figure in the Trump administration’s messaging strategy. She is being replaced by deputy press secretary Raj Shah.
On July 26, 2018, Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced that she would be resigning as the White House press secretary. Sanders made the announcement during a press conference with President Donald Trump. Sanders had been in the position since May 2017. She had previously served as Deputy Press Secretary and Communications Director for the Trump campaign.
In a statement released by the White House, Sanders said that she was grateful for her time in the role and was looking forward to moving on to other opportunities. “President Donald J. Trump values loyalty and integrity above all else and I have always tried to bring those two traits to my work here at the White House,” she added.
Sanders has come under fire in recent months for her responses to questions from reporters. In particular, she has come under fire for her response to a question about former FBI director James Comey’s firing. In that exchange, Sanders told reporters that Trump had fired Comey because of his handling of the FBI’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. However, later reports indicated that Trump may have fired Comey due to concerns about his investigations into possible collusion between Russia and members of Trump’s campaign team.
