Sarah Sanders, Trump’s Spokeswoman, to Leave White House

from The Wall Street Journal,

Press secretary hasn’t held a formal briefing in months as much news now comes from the president’s Twitter feed.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders will leave her job at the end of the month to return to her home state of Arkansas, President Trump said Thursday. “She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job! I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas,” Mr. Trump tweeted.

Most news out of the White House now comes from Mr. Trump’s Twitter feed and his impromptu question-and-answer sessions with reporters. Ms. Sanders hasn’t held a formal briefing in the press room in months. Mr. Trump interrupted an East Room event Thursday to call Ms. Sanders on stage. Ms. Sanders called the job an honor of a lifetime. “I’ve loved every minute, even the hard minutes,” she said. “It’s truly the most special experience. The only one I can think of that might top it, just a little bit, is the fact that I’m a mom.”
