Sarah Huckabee Sanders leaving White House, reports claim; Sanders responds

In a style similar to how Sanders has dealt with the White House Press Corps, she tweeted the CBS News report was wrong.

But reporters including Acosta reminded Sanders that no one was forcing the administration to hold children captive, and that there is in fact no law forcing it to separate them from their parents. If Shah does decide to leave, the article said it is unclear when that might be.

Neither Sanders nor Shah responded to repeated requests for comment before this story was published.

He said Sanders may be weighing her future options, but he doesn't see any evidence to back up the CBS story.

"I'm trying to be serious but I'm not going to have you yell out of turn", she told Karem, adding, "I know you want to get some more TV time but that's not what this is about".

Sanders plans to leave at the end of the year, according to CBS. She did not speak to the veracity of CBS's report that Raj Shah plans to go, and Shah has yet to confirm or deny. "I love my job and am honored to work for @POTUS". Numerous staffers have left in recent months, including Communications Director Hope Hicks, assistant press secretary Natalie Strom and director of White House message strategy Cliff Sims. The report cited anonymous "sources inside the White House and close to the administration".

Brookings Institution, a Washington DC think tank, calculates that "A Team" staff turnover in the Trump White House-those working in the executive office of the president-is 51 percent, or 33 out of 65 positions.
