Sarah Huckabee Sanders surprised many when she stepped down as the White House press secretary.
Fans were happy when Sanders became a Fox News contributor, but what she has planned next will certainly have fans cheering.
During an interview with Fox host Sean Hannity before President Donald Trump’s rally in New Mexico, Sanders called out the mainstream media and their blatant, politically-motivated agenda to oust him at all costs.
She also dropped a not-so-subtle hint about potentially running for political office in the near future.
“The agenda of obstruction that they have against this president is completely out of control,” Sanders said.
She also said the media can’t stand that Trump is “delivering on all the things that he said he was going to, including a conservative court.”
She continued, “Because they can’t beat him now they’re going after everyone around him, everyone associated with him, and they’re even making stuff up.”
“They try to destroy the president because they hate that he won in 2016 and then they hated that he was able to start delivering on all the things that he said he was going to, including a conservative court,” she said, referring to his judicial appointments, including two conservative Supreme Court justices.
“Because they can’t beat him now they’re going after everyone around him, everyone associated with him, and they’re even making stuff up. It’s completely out of control. And at some point they have to start holding people accountable. I think the president is right to start calling for something to be done.”
The former press secretary, whose father is the former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, said Trump “continues to prove them wrong.”
“Every time that they say this president won’t do something, he won’t succeed, he won’t be able to do anything on immigration, he’ll cripple the economy, he won’t rebuild the military, he won’t create tax reform, he won’t cut taxes—every single time they say he won’t do it, he does it,” she said. “And it makes them embarrassed, it makes them look like fools, and he continues to do it.”
Sanders also teased the possibility of running for political office in the coming years.
Since stepping down as press secretary, Sanders has become a Fox News contributor and secured a major book deal.
And, speculation is rife that she is strongly considering running for governor in her home state of Arkansas.
In private conversations in recent weeks, Sanders has floated running for governor in her home state of Arkansas, according to two people familiar with the talks.
Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson was re-elected just last year, so unless he steps down early — or is appointed to something — the governor’s office in Little Rock isn’t open until January 2023.
She has told colleagues and friends that she thinks running for office would be a good next move for her, instead of taking a television job upon her departure.
President Trump is also pushing Sanders to run for political office.
During a ceremony at the White House in June, Trump recognized Sanders after revealing she will be stepping down and added that he wants her to run for governor in Arkansas.
Trump said at the time: “If we can get her to run for the Governor of Arkansas I think she’ll do very well and I’m trying to get her to do that.”
If she chooses to follow in her father’s footsteps, the seat for governor opens up in 2022.
