Sarah Sanders, Raj Shah planning to depart the White House

14 June 2018

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders shot down a report Wednesday that said she was planning to leave the White House at the end of the year, saying she was "honored" to work with President Trump and "loves" her job.

Sanders replaced Sean Spicer, who quit last summer after President Donald tapped pal/financier Anthony Scaramucci as White House communications director - a gig Spicer had been filling in on. As for Shah, he's considering leaving, but he hasn't set a firm timeline on his possible exit.

Neither Sanders nor Shah responded to comment from the publication.

"Does @CBSNews know something I don't about my plans and my future?"

Sanders plans to leave at the end of the year, according to CBS.

Sanders took to Twitter to respond to the CBS News report that said she and deputy press secretary Raj Shah were leaving.

Others have departed the White House recently including Hope Hicks, Josh Raffel, Tom Bossert, Michael Anton, John McEntee, Cliff Simms, Steven Cheung, Kaelan Dorr, Natalie Strom, and Tyler Ross. Some positions have never been filled.

Two of the most visible members of the Trump administration are planning their departures, the latest sign of upheaval in a White House marked by high staff turnover. She became the dean of Trump administration communications directors, sticking around a good six months before resigning the day after she testified before the House Intelligence Committee.
