Outgoing press secretary Sarah Sanders issued a goodbye message on Friday on Twitter honoring her last day at the White House. She said she will “walk out the gates of the White House” 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 tweeted. “You’re the best…Thank you!”
Sarah announced earlier this month that she was leaving her position as press secretary after two years.
The president praised her in a series of tweets shortly after the announcement, calling her a “special person with extraordinary talents.”
However, President Trump is not in Washington to see her off on her last day, as he is attending the G-20 summit in Japan.
During her time as White House Press Secretary, Sarah frequently clashed with the WH press corps and has been criticized for not holding enough press briefings.
Stephanie Grisham, the spokesperson for first lady Melania Trump, has been selected as Sanders’s replacement.
