Goodbye, Sarah! We’ll miss you!
Today was Sarah Sanders’ last day at the White House as Press Secretary.
In order to mark the occasion and show her gratitude for the last 3 and a half years she spent in the position, Sarah posted to Twitter in order to thank Trump for the “privilege of a lifetime.”
Take a look at the tweet here:
Twitter users responsed to Sarah's tweet honoring her time as Press Secretary and wishing her the best in her future endeavors (which may include Governor of Arkansas sometime soon if she following her dad's footsteps...)

CBS News has more on Sarah passing the torch of Press Secretary to Melania's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham:
Sarah Sanders is leaving the White House Friday, passing off the role of press secretary after more than two years to Stephanie Grisham.
Sanders tweeted Friday morning that she walks out the White House gates with her head "held high." President Trump announced her departure earlier this month on Twitter, and earlier this week the first lady announced Grisham, her spokeswoman, would replace Sanders.
Sanders is returning with her family to Arkansas, and she's not ruling out the possibility of a run for governor in three years, which would be the same position her father held from 1996-2007. The White House press secretary role boosted her profile nationally, making such a bid more feasible.
The Hill also commented on Sarah's last day:
Outgoing press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Friday tweeted a goodbye message honoring her last day at the Trump White House, saying she will leave her post with her “head held high.”
“Today I’ll walk out the gates of the White House for the last time as Press Secretary with my head held high. It’s been the honor and privilege of a lifetime to work with President @realDonaldTrump and his amazing team the last three and a half years,” Sanders wrote on Twitter. “You’re the best...Thank you!”
The fierce Trump defender announced earlier this month that she was leaving her position as the president’s spokeswoman after a tumultuous two years.
Trump praised her in a series of tweets shortly after sharing the news of imminent departure, calling her a “special person with extraordinary talents” and publicly encouraging her to one day run for governor of her home state of Arkansas.
