Sarah Huckabee Sanders will replace Sean Spicer as White House press secretary, it was announced Friday.
The announcement was made in the press briefing room by Anthony Scaramucci, who was named White House communications director on Friday, the same day Spicer resigned.
“The president loves Sarah,” Scaramucci said. “He thinks she’s doing a phenomenal job. I agree with him. I think Reince Priebus and other members of the staff agree. And I’m super proud to work with her. And I think she’s going to phenomenal as a press secretary.”
Sanders most recently served as deputy press secretary, increasingly filling in for Spicer during on-camera and off-camera briefings recently.
