“Does CBS know something I don’t about my plans and my future?”
Earlier this evening, CBS reported White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah were not long for the White House staff.
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 turmoil.
Press secretary Sarah Sanders and principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah are both heading for the exits, according to sources inside the White House and close to the administration. Sanders, who has become a confidante of President Trump since the, has told friends that she plans to leave the administration at the end of the year.
Shah is also considering his exit, but he has not yet settled on an exact date. Neither Sanders nor Shah responded to repeated requests for comment before this story was published.
Shortly after the CBS report, Sanders tweeted:
Does @CBSNews know something I don’t about my plans and my future? I was at my daughter’s year-end Kindergarten event and they ran a story about my “plans to leave the WH” without even talking to me. I love my job and am honored to work for @POTUS
— Sarah Sanders (@PressSec) June 14, 2018
Sanders doesn’t say she’s staying, just that she loves her job, but she doesn’t mention leaving either.
Fox News later reported both Shah and Sanders are weighing their options:
Both Sanders and Shah are weighing future options, Fox News has learned, which may or may not include their departures from the White House.
Sanders has talked about departing sometime after November’s mid-term elections and although Shah’s timetable is unclear, it could possibly come sooner – although both could remain in their roles, too.
