President Trump announced Thursday on Twitter that White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders will be leaving her position at the end of the month. The president has not yet named a replacement for the position.

Sarah Sanders called serving the president an “honor of a lifetime” and said she “couldn’t be prouder” of the administration’s work. “I’ve loved every minute, even the hard minutes,” Sanders said at the event, calling her role the “most special experience” of her life second only to being a mom of three.

Sanders later tweeted saying she is “blessed and forever grateful to @realDonaldTrump for the opportunity to serve and proud of everything he’s accomplished. I love the President and my job. The most important job I’ll ever have is being a mom to my kids and it’s time for us to go home. Thank you Mr. President!”

Sanders, 36, and the daughter of former Arkansas Republican Gov. Mike Huckabee worked on her father’s presidential campaign during the 2016 Republican primary until he dropped out of the race. She then joined the Trump campaign and, subsequently, the Trump administration as a White House communications aide. She was promoted to White House press secretary in 2017, after the president’s first top spokesman, Sean Spicer, resigned from the position.

If she chooses to follow in her father’s footsteps the seat for governor opens up in 2022.

Throughout her tenure at the White House, Sanders has come under fierce criticism from members of the press for being dishonest on the president’s behalf during press briefings that were often contentious and emotional. Eventually, the press secretary stopped giving daily briefings altogether at the suggestion of the president who said the press covered her “rudely and inaccurately.”.

“I’m going to continue to be one of the most outspoken and loyal supporters of the president and his agenda and I know he’s going to have an incredible six more years and get a lot more done,” Sanders said.

Huckabee also tweeted about the news of Sander’s departure, taking the opportunity to praise his daughter calling her “a great one” and joking that he says that “with as much objectivity as Fake News CNN has towards @POTUS.”

Her full comments are below:

Thank you. Thank you so much. I’ll try not to get emotional because I know that crying can make us look weak sometimes right?

This has been the honor of a lifetime, the opportunity of a lifetime. I couldn’t be prouder to have had the opportunity to serve my country and particularly to work for this president. He has accomplished so much in these two and a half years, and it’s truly been something I will treasure forever. It’s one of the greatest jobs I could ever have. I’ve loved every minute even the hard minutes I have loved it. I love the president. I love the team that I’ve had the opportunity to work for. The president is surrounded by some of the most incredible and most talented people you could ever imagine. And it’s truly the most special experience.

The only one I can think of that might top it just a little bit is the fact that I’m a mom. I have three amazing kids, and I’m going to spend a little more time with them. And in the meantime, I’m going to continue to be one of the most outspoken and loyal supporters of the president and his agenda. And I know he’s going to have an incredible six more years and get a whole lot more done like what we’re here to celebrate today. And I don’t want to take away from that, so I certainly want to get back to the tremendous thing that the people behind me have done. And thank you so much Mr. President. It’s truly an honor.

    A hearty thankyou to Sarah Sanders for dealing with that grueling job for President Trump.
    She represented President Trump fiercely & with integrity…defending not ONLY President Trump’s integrity, but her own as well…for 3 years.

    The MSM mainstream media looks even more pitiful & unamerican as a result of that.

    Job well done, my dear!!!

    Americans were blessed to have a person of such high character to be at The President’s side. Just look at the selfish, spiteful, grandstanding garbage he has to put up with in The House. Sarah Sanders showed the world the real side of America.

    Sarah Sanders has been head and shoulders above the all the disgusting people that have made rude and nasty comments not only TO her, but also ABOUT her and behind her back. This is the kind of woman that the world needs more of. She is honest, sincere, hard-working, and above all, a woman of character. God bless you, Sarah, and God bless your family for the sacrifices you made on behalf of our country, as well as our wonderful President!

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen such an outpouring of love and appreciation for a Presidential press secretary, in my entire life, as what we are seeing today for Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and I’m almost 62 years old, so that’s saying something! She has done a fantastic job, which reflects well on President Trump, as well as her father, Governor Mike Huckabee!

    All the comments reflect exactly how I feel and how I so respect our outgoing Press Secretary!! Sarah Sanders has set a VERY high standard, and her loyalty and courage will be missed for some time to come. But, God willing, her replacement will keep her high standards in mind ans he or she tries to fill those amazing shoes!! God bless and Godspeed, Sarah!!

    She is leaving some big shoes to fill…she was THE best Press Secretary in my lifetime…and I’m 70 years old. May God continue to bless you young lady…you truly did so right for our President and our Nation.

    Sarah has been a superb representative of President Trump’s administration. Her time as Press Secretary will be remembered as one of grace under pressure! Look at what she faced in those conferences, James Acosta for one, reporters not there for information only to bait and accuse. I will enjoy thinking of her truly enjoying a more relaxed time with her family. Well done, Sarah, well done.

    I can’t be emphatic enough in how much I appreciate the work Sarah Sanders has done. Just as emphatically I appreciate her reasons for leaving now. Kids grow up fast. Besides, there is only so much of that type of job a normal person can take. We’re lucky to have had her as long as we’ve had.

    You and your Dad are both Patriotic Americans. We are blessed to have had your serve.
    I think if it were me I would have to say to the press, “If you have a question without throwing in your own personal agenda and without your childish innuendoes, please feel free to ask it. Otherwise keep your damn mouth shut.”

    I can hardly imagine the sacrifice involved with being a mother and time requirements needed to do her job at the level she did. literally being a Governor of her State would be a lessor sacrifice of time spent with her family.. by far.
    Thank you for your sacrifices for the Nation and the raising of children in this Nation!

    You will be missed. Before you leave could you please slap Jim Acosta?!?! LOL
    Great job and you’re an inspiration to every young lady that wants to grow up to be strong and independent!
    Good luck in future endeavors.

    Thank you, Sarah!! You certainly showed the democrats what class is all about…not that they would try to emulate that…but you always took the high road. Enjoy your time with your kiddos and please run for Governor of Arkansas!! We appreciate you!
