Sarah Sanders doesn't deny report she plans to leave White House

Press secretary Sarah Sanders and principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah are considering stepping down, according to a CBS report.

According to CBS, sources inside the White House say Sanders has told friends she plans to leave the administration by the end of 2018. However, she did not address the accuracy of the report. But shortly after the article was published, Sanders took to Twitter to claim she was at an event for her child when the story ran. Speaking about one of her children, she added, "Scarlett and every little girl in America should grow up in a country that - if we deliver on the president's agenda better jobs, better health care and a better tax system - incentivizes women to work and raise children".

"To say that Sarah Huckabee Sanders has been talking about leaving at the end of the year hardly means that it's set in stone".

"That's not what I said".

Former communications director Hope Hicks, Jared Kushner's top communications aide Josh Raffel, Trump personal aide John McEntee, congressional communications director Kaelan Dorr, assistant press secretary Natalie Strom deputy media affairs director Tyler Ross and others have moved on.

Her predecessor, Sean Spicer, lasted about six months in the position; the typical tenure for a White House press secretary is two years or less. In addition to all of that, the president prefers to have a small communications staff.

In response, CBS stated that "when reached Wednesday evening, both (Sanders and Shah) declined to comment on the record". The report cited anonymous "sources inside the White House and close to the administration".
