Trump’s press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders quits

Donald Trump’s press secretary and long-term ally Sarah Huckabee Sanders will leave her job at the end of the month.

On Twitter Mr Trump said: “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 – she would be fantastic.”

The president did not name a successor.

Ms Sanders is widely seen as one of Donald Trump’s most trusted lieutenants, and is one of the few remaining in the White House who worked on his campaign.

Under her relations with the press frequently broke down and a formal briefing hasn’t been held since March.

The 36-year-old is a daughter of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and became a stand-in for Trump on television during his 2016 campaign for the presidency.

She joined the White House team in January 2017 as a deputy assistant to the president and deputy press secretary. She was promoted into the press secretary role in July 2017, where she succeeded Sean Spicer.
