Sarah Sanders plans to leave her job as White House press secretary at the end of the month, Trump announced in a tweet June 13. Sanders is one of Trump's closest and most trusted White House aides and one of the few remaining who worked on his campaign, taking on the job of advocating for and defending a president who had his own unconventional ideas about how to conduct the people's business. Trump said he's encouraging her to run for governor when she returns home to Arkansas, where her father once held the job.
