Upon resigning from her position as the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders left with only well-wishes from then commander-in-chief, Donald Trump. As reported by The New York Times, Trump applauded Huckabee Sanders for a job well done. “We’ve been through a lot together. She’s tough and she’s good,” he declared. “She’s a warrior,” he added before bestowing her with a smooch on the side of her head. Awkwarddd.
But even after sending her off with well-wishes, Trump took it one step further when he publicly encouraged her to run for Arkansas governor, per USA Today. “She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job!” Trump wrote in a tweet. “I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas – she would be fantastic. Sarah, thank you for a job well done!”
Now it appears she’s finally obliged the former prez, and Trump has made it clear he couldn’t be happier. As reported by The Washington Post, after Huckabee Sanders threw her hat in the ring, Trump publicly endorsed her bid for Arkansas governor. “Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a warrior who will always fight for the people of Arkansas and do what is right, not what is politically correct. Sarah is strong on Borders, tough on Crime, and fully supports the Second Amendment and our great law enforcement officers,” he penned in the statement. TBD if that endorsement actually carries any weight.
