Sarah Elizabeth Sanders also known as Sarah Huckabee Sanders, is an American political analyst and politician. She was the 31st White House press secretary, serving under President Donald Trump from 2017 to 2019. She was the third woman to serve in that position. Sanders previously worked on the election campaigns of her father, Arkansas governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, and later served as a senior advisor on Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

As press secretary, she was a boisterous defender of the Trump administration, and had a confrontational relationship with the White House Press Corps.[1][2][3][4] When interviewed by investigators as part of the Mueller probe, she admitted making false statements to the public as press secretary.[5][6][7] Sanders hosted fewer press conferences than any of the 13 previous White House press secretaries.[8]

In June 2019, Trump tweeted that Sanders would be leaving her role as press secretary at the end of the month.[9][10] On January 25, 2021, she announced her candidacy in the 2022 Arkansas gubernatorial election.[11]
