Sarah Huckabee Sanders leaving role as Trump’s press secretary

U.S. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders speaks with the news media in Washington

Sanders succeeded Sean Spicer, Trump's first press secretary, in mid-2017.

Reporters rallied behind Sanders, however, when comedian Michelle Wolf mocked her appearance and her alleged lies during the 2018 White House Correspondents Dinner.

Instead, journalists now engage Sanders during impromptu question-and-answer sessions on the White House driveway. And a third says when they ask Manchin about his future, "All he says is, 'I'll be here until 2020, '"The Hill reports". She wants to spent time with her family and three young children. She's also among the longest tenured of an inner circle that has experienced record turnover among senior staff.

The White House swiftly responded by calling the process "blatantly unfair" and demanding the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) retract its "outrageous" recommendation.

In an attempt to substantiate her claim that Comey was sacked for performance issues - rather than to impede the Mueller probe, as many suspected - Sanders told reporters that "countless" Federal Bureau of Investigation agents lost confidence in Comey ahead of his firing.

In the finding sent to the president, the OSC said Ms Conway has engaged in a pattern of unacceptable conduct.

The pricey mistake took place on Highway 17 near Quadra St.in Saanich, British Columbia around 6.20pm on Friday. Manak shared the incident on Twitter warning other drivers to be careful about their in-car smoking habits.

Huckabee Sanders now joins 20 other government officials who have either been fired by the president or exited of their own volition.

At an event aimed at highlighting hiring efforts for former inmates, Trump praised Sanders saying: "She's done an incredible job".

Speculation immediately turned to whether Sanders might run for governor of Arkansas, a position once held by her father, Mike Huckabee. She later corrected the error in a tweet. Month earlier, Sanders told reporters that the president had no role in crafting the inaccurate statement.

"She would be fantastic", he said. I have loved every minute, even the hard minutes.

The frequency of press briefings slowed down considerably after that day.
