WASHINGTON, D.C. — White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be leaving the Trump Administration at the end of the month, according to a tweet from President Donald Trump.

President Trump said his long-term spokesperson will be returning to her home state of Arkansas. He wrote his appreciation for the work Sanders had done and tweeted that he hoped she would run for governor of Arkansas.

President Trump did not immediately name a successor to Sanders as press secretary.

Serving since the beginning of the Trump administration’s tenure in the White House, Sanders is one of the president’s most trusted aides. She was one of the few remaining who have been with the president since the campaign days.
