Sarah Sanders responds to report that she is leaving White House


Report: Sarah Sanders and Raj Shah planning to leave White House

CBS News is reporting that press secretary and deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Raj Shah will be leaving the White House.

Two White House officials are preparing to leave the Trump administration, reports say.

Sanders responded shortly after in a tweet, claiming she was at her "daughter's year-end Kindergarten event" when CBS News "ran a story about [her] "plans to leave the WH" without even talking to" her. Shah is considering exiting but has not decided when, CBS reports.

Not to be picky... but that's not an explicit denial of the report.

The popular chain said: We assure you it is never our intention to offend our guests with the merchandise we provide. The backlash has prompted Target officials to remove the cards, and apologize to offended shoppers.

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

Sanders has been the White House press secretary for less than a year. "I love my job and am honored to work for @POTUS". Her first press briefing came after Anthony Scaramucci left the White House July 31, just 10 days after he started. Before her, Sean Spicer held the position for 182 days before leaving.

Even with a smaller than usual workforce, the Trump Administration's White House set a record in turnover rates, which now stands at 51 percent and President Donald Trump isn't even half-way through his first term in office.
