Sarah Sanders' most memorable White House moments

Donald Trump’s former press secretary has announced she will publish a memoir about her experiences in his administration.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the as yet untitled book, to be released in 2020, will tell of the ”challenges of being a working mum at the highest level of American politics”.

She said it would also deal with her role in “the historic fight raging between the Trump administration and its critics for the future of our country”.

“A trusted confidante of the president, Sarah advised him on everything from press and communications strategy to personnel and policy,” the book’s publisher, St Martin’s Press, said in a statement.

“For two and a half years, Sarah was at the president’s side, battling with the media, working with lawmakers and CEOs, and accompanying the president on every foreign trip, including dozens of meetings with foreign leaders.”

The statement said Ms Sanders would “recount her years on the front line of the campaign and in the administration, including the most dramatic and challenging moments”.

“Sarah will address subjects including the media, family, faith, and performing an all-consuming and highly visible job while raising her young family.”

Ms Sanders served as Mr Trump’s press secretary from July 2017 to June 2019.

She was the third woman and first mother to hold the position.

Last month, Ms Sanders announced she would be joining Fox News as a contributor on Fox & Friends.

She is believed to be contemplating a run for governor of Arkansas in 2022, where her father served in the same role from 1996 to 2007.

It comes after Ms Sanders’ predecessor, Sean Spicer, joined the cast of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars.

Mr Spicer said he hoped the series would be a “politics-free zone”.
