Trump weighs in on possible Sarah Sanders replacement

Trump weighs in on possible Sarah Sanders replacement

"She has been a warrior, in a sense", he said.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders talks to reporters after an interview with FOX News outside the West Wing May 23, 2019 in Washington, DC.

CNN is reporting tonight that people within the White House are acknowledging President Donald Trump's comments about being open to accepting foreign dirt weren't good, even if they think the blowback won't be huge.

Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon also threw a quip or two at the retiring White House spokeswoman joking, "In a statement, Sanders said nothing, as usual". But we have some great - But Sarah was fantastic, and she is fantastic.

Jonathan Swan, a reporter for Axios, said that "a number of influential people close to President Trump want her in the job-and Trump has told people he likes her and trusts her". She said she was drawn to Trump's message of economic populism and his outsider attitude.

Sanders, who will be moving to her home state of Arkansas with her family, gave the speech after the president invited her to say a few words. "I mean, I have heard from a large number of individuals that work at the Federal Bureau of Investigation that said that they're very happy with the president's decision".

Before calling her forward to speak, Trump suggested Sanders' political career is far from over.

The problem is the Warriors did not have a timeout, which gave the Raptors a free throw and possession in the Bay Area. Both Durant and Thompson will be free agents in the offseason.

Her credibility has also come under question. At other times, she parroted the president with more destructive language: Some media people were not enemies of the people - only the "fake news" types.

Former press secretary Joe Lockhart wrote on CNN that Sanders' legacy would be enshrined in the Mueller report.

Carrey isn't the only person who isn't sad to see Sanders go.

Although Sanders is often blamed for the White House's killing off of the press briefing, she has been serving a president who from the start chose to tear up the media playbook.

Her relationship with the press corps became particularly strained a year ago after a comedian hired by the White House Correspondents' Association for its annual dinner mocked her appearance and penchant for spinning the truth as Sanders sat nearby at the head table. It was only when she was under oath and facing potential jail time did Sanders admit she made the whole story up.

Sanders's deputy, Hogan Gidley, is poised to step into the role at least temporarily if a permanent replacement isn't named by July.

And while journalists now rarely hold the administration's feet to the fire in the calm, organized setting of the briefing room, they have extraordinary access to Trump himself.
