Sean Spicer announced his resignation as Trump’s press secretary on Friday, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders, deputy secretary of information at the White House, swore to replace him.
The Washington Post reported on Friday that Spicer would not be the press secretary in response to President Trump appointing New York financier Anthony Scaramuchi as communications director, a decision he considered a “big mistake”. (President Trump removed Scaramuchi from July 31, only 10 days after Scaramuchi took over.) Ever since the next rumors were reported to be the press secretary, it is not surprising that Huckabee Sanders took office immediately after Spicer’s resignation.
Who is Sarah Huckabee Sanders?
Huckabee Sanders then worked as coordinator of the Department of Education as field coordinator in Ohio for President George W. Bush’s re-election campaign in 2004.
The 35-year-old was a founding partner of the Street Street Strategists in Little Rock, Ark, where she worked in many national political campaigns, including her role as the national political director of her mother at the White House in 2008.

He also ran in the 2008 presidential campaign, where he was the preferred candidate for religious right. However, he was overthrown by John McCain, who ended up receiving the Republican nomination.Huckabee’s career gave him a net worth of $ 9 million, with an annual salary of $ 500,000, according to the celebrity newspaper.
