Sarah Sanders criticizes report that she is leaving White House

Sarah Sanders'resignation

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has denied a CBS News report that she is leaving her post in the Trump administration.

In a style similar to how Sanders has dealt with the White House Press Corps, she tweeted the CBS News report was wrong. Shah, according to the report, allegedly has not decided on when he will be exiting. She told her followers, Does @CBSNEWS know something I don't about my plans and my future? Shah had not set a date of departure, CBS said. They told the network Sanders is planning to leave at the end of the year. She said she loved her job and was honored to work for the president.

In response, CBS stated that "when reached Wednesday evening, both (Sanders and Shah) declined to comment on the record".

Two of the most visible members of the Trump administration are planning their departures, the latest sign of upheaval in a White House marked by high staff turnover. Staffers who have left include former communications director Hope Hicks; Jared Kushner's top communications aide, Josh Raffel; National Security Council spokesman Michael Anton; Trump personal aide John McEntee; director of White House message strategy Cliff Simms; communications aide Steven Cheung; congressional communications director Kaelan Dorr; assistant press secretary Natalie Strom; and deputy director of media affairs Tyler Ross.

Communications director Anthony Scaramucci was sacked last summer after a brief stint at the White House.

Sanders has served as Trump's press secretary since July 2017.
