WASHINGTON - White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders on Thursday dismissed reports that she and other high-level White House aides are eyeing the exits, telling reporters that she "loves' her job.
In her first press briefing since the president returned from his meeting in Singapore with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Sanders said - in an answer that has become a mantra - that she had no personnel announcements to make.
"I can tell you that I show up here every day. I love my job, I'm glad to work for the president,' said Sanders, who became White House press secretary nearly a year ago.
"Each and every day I'll pray for clarity and discernment on what my future looks like,' Sanders added. "Right now I think the country looks pretty good and I'm glad to get to be a part of that process and I'm going to continue to do my job.'
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 was responding to a CBS report suggesting that she and principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah are preparing to leave the White House in coming months. The Wall Street Journal reported separately that Marc Short, director of legislative affairs at the White House, is planning to depart before the midterm elections.
"In terms of personnel announcements, I don't have any to make," Sanders said.
