Sarah Huckabee Sanders planning to leave White House

14 June 2018

After the report was published, Sanders responded with a tweet from her official social media account, but she didn't appear to directly deny it.

It is the first on-camera briefing since rumors surfaced that Sanders and deputy press secretary Raj Shah could leave their posts at the White House.

Complaints about the matter are already threatening to overshadow Sony's publicity efforts at the E3 video games show in Los Angeles.

If true, it would be the latest series of shakeups in the White House press department since Hope Hicks resigned as the White House communications director in February. Whether Trump says "you're fired" or a staffer finally gets fed up and quits, the administration has been unable to keep positions filled, if they've filled them at all. Some positions have never been filled.

CBS also reported that more departures are expected soon. Since then, the administration's turnover rate has grown 51 percent. Turnover during Mr. Trump's first year in office was 34 percent - almost four times higher than turnover during the first year of the Obama administration. Last week, Mr. Kelly told visiting senators that the White House was "a miserable place to work", according to a person with direct knowledge of the comment. A source told the network that Sanders let friends know she prepared to exit by the end of the year.
