Sarah Sanders Emotional Resignation

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced her intention to resign from her position at the end of this month, and was invited on stage by President Donald Trump earlier today to speak briefly about her time in the White House.

President Trump invited Sanders on stage while holding a separate White House event today, and lauded the Press Secretary’s track record in the White House, and suggested he hoped would run for governor of Arkansas in the future.

Sanders responded by thanking President Trump for the opportunity to work in his administration in a touching speech, and explained that she intended to spend more time with her three children at home after leaving the position.

“She’s great, and she’s going to be leaving service of her country, and she’s going to be going, I guess you could say private sector, but she comes from a great state, Arkansas,” said President Trump. “She’s going to be going back to Arkansas with her great family, and her husband is a fantastic guy.”

He then went on to suggest Sanders should run for governor, telling her family”Folks if you can get her to run for governor of Arkansas, I think she’ll do very well, and I’m trying to get her to do that.”

Sanders then briefly delivered emotional remarks before leaving the podium.

“I’ll try not to get emotional because I knowing crying can make us look weak,” Sanders joked at the podium. “This has been the honor of a lifetime, the opportunity of a lifetime, I couldn’t be prouder to have had the opportunity to serve my country and particularly to work for this president.”

She also lauded President Trump for his many accomplishments, and said being part of the administration is “something I will cherish forever.”

Sanders went on, “It’s truly the most special experience, the only one I can think of that might top it a little bit, is the fact that I’m a mom. I have three amazing kids, and I’m going to spend a little more time with them.”

“In the mean time, I’m going to continue to be one of the most outspoken and loyal supporters of the president and his agenda,” Sanders added, “I know he’s going to have an incredible six more years and get a whole lot more done.”

Sanders served as White House Press Secretary for two and a half years.
