President Donald Trump announced on Thursday that White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders will leave the White House at the end of June with plans to return to Arkansas.

"She's going to be going back to Arkansas with her great family", Trump said before saying he was trying very hard to convince her to run for governor of the state. "Sarah, thank you for a job well done!"

Sanders, the daughter of former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, has served in the White House since the beginning of Mr. Trump's presidency, taking over for Sean Spicer when he left that role.

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.

Special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation report revealed that Sanders admitted to investigators that she had made an unfounded claim about "countless" FBI agents reaching out to express support for President Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey in May 2017. The president called her a "warrior" and encouraged her to run for governor of Arkansas. She took the position in July 2017 and was previously deputy press secretary.

Russian Doll gets a second series
I know you probably have things to do in your life, but also that is a mistake you've very clearly made and you need to fix it. However - and this is a crucial "however" - there is the question of content when it comes to Russian Doll season 2.

'I told her not to bother, the word gets out anyway, ' Trump wrote. She has not held a formal briefing since March 11.

White House press briefings became less and less frequent occasions under Sanders.

She said she was drawn to Trump's message of economic populism and his outsider attitude.

"As far as I know, I'm the first press secretary in the history of the United States that's required Secret Service protection", Sanders said.
