Huckabee Sanders Effusively Praises Trump in First Fox & Friends Appearance
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Donald Trump’s former press secretary, announced that she would be leaving the White House in June. That does not mean however, that she was going to stray too far from the conservative media stream.
Sanders was hired to become a contributor by Fox News and made her first appearance on the network this morning. During her spot on Fox & Friends, the pundit was effusive in her praise for Donald Trump and told viewers that they can expect for that to continue.
The hosts asked Sanders how she feels about the frequent criticism she faced in her former role. She replied:
“They still see me as somebody who is a very pro-Trump supporter. I’m not going to change my position. It would be very odd to go from doing what I was doing, to all of a sudden doing something different. I loved my experience. I loved working for the president. I think he has been able to do some tremendous things for the country, and I look forward to watching him do it for six more years.”
Had a great time on @foxandfriends for my first appearance on @FoxNews as a contributor. Such an honor to be surrounded by some of our country’s first responders – true American heroes! https://t.co/ZFugndWm9j

Sanders also recently announced a new book deal. Editor in Chief of St. Martins, George White, said the book, “will offer a truly unique perspective on the most important issues, events, and both public and behind-the-scenes conversations inside the White House.”
