Sarah Sanders denies report she’s planning to quit White House job

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders denied a report Wednesday night that she was planning to leave her job.


“Does @CBSNews know something I don’t about my plans and my future?” she tweeted.





Hours earlier, CBS News reported Sanders and her top aide, deputy press secretary Raj Shah, are planning to quit their White House jobs.


Citing multiple sources, CBS said Sanders planned to leave at the end of the year, while Shah had no timeline yet.


More departures in the White House communications office are expected in the coming weeks, CBS said, and many currently vacant jobs will not be filled. The office has gone through three communications directors in the past year — Sean Spicer, Anthony Scaramucci and Hope Hicks — and the position is currently vacant.


“There will be even more people leaving the White House sooner rather than later, laid off or just leaving out of exhaustion,” one source told CBS.


Sanders was appointed press secretary last July.
