White House press secretary Sarah Sanders is leaving at the end of June.
"I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas - she would be fantastic", he wrote.
"The 36-year old Sanders, the daughter of former Arkansas Republican Gov. Mike Huckabee, worked on her father's presidential campaign during the 2016 Republican primary until he dropped out of the race", Fox News reported.
Sanders' tenure was a rocky one marked by sometimes-ugly clashes with with the White House press corps - famously CNN's Jim Acosta - and Democrats' accusations of spreading falsehoods. It isn't immediately clear who will replace her.
Several other press and communications officials have recently left the White House, where the president's mercurial nature has often made it hard to speak with authority on his behalf.
"Frankly, I think my credibility is probably higher than the media's", she said". Sources close to Sanders told CBS News she was planning on leaving past year, but decided against that after her then-principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah made a decision to leave the administration.
Sanders, who has three young children, was the first working mother to serve as White House press secretary - a theme she regularly invoked during press briefings. She has lasted longer in that role than any of Trump's previous mouthpieces. He added, "If we can get her to run for the governor of Arkansas, I think she'll do very well".
