U.S. President Donald Trump has announced that White House press secretary Sarah Sanders is leaving her position.
 
World news reports. 
 
In a pair of tweets making the announcement on Thursday, Trump said that Sanders will leave the White House at the end of this month and return to Arkansas, her home state.
   
But the President has not named a replacement for Sanders.
   
The 36-year-old is the third female to have served as White House press secretary and is one of Trump's closest aides.
   
Speaking to an event at the White House on Thursday afternoon, Trump said that Sanders will join the private sector, while weighing in on the possibility that she will run for governor of Arkansas, a position that her father held from 1996 to 2007. 
   
Sanders, who later spoke briefly at the podium, called her tenure "truly the most special experience," vowing to continue to be "one of most outspoken and loyal supporters" of Trump and his agenda.
   
But she did not comment on the president's suggestion that she might run for office.
      
During her tenure, there has been a decline in the number of White House press briefings, as Trump answers questions from reporters on a near-daily basis.
