White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is planning to leave her job by the end of the year, according to a new report from CBS.

She tweeted that CBS News hadn't confirmed their report with her.

CBS News reported that Sanders told friends she plans on leaving at the end of the year.

Fed Raises Interest Rates for Second Time this Year
The Fed anticipates that inflation will overshoot its 2% target this year; in March, officials saw that happening only in 2020. Yields have been climbing this year , as markets position for a relatively more aggressive Fed amid inflation concerns.

"Does @CBSNews know something I don't about my plans and my future?". She responded afterward, expressing her love for working for President Trump.

In response, CBS stated that "when reached Wednesday evening, both (Sanders and Shah) declined to comment on the record".

Sanders, the daughter of former Arkansas Governor and failed presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, assumed the role of press secretary after the exit of Sean Spicer in June 2017. The report also said that principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah was planning to leave his position in the Trump administration.
