Shah had not set a date of departure, CBS said.

In a style similar to how Sanders has dealt with the White House Press Corps, she tweeted the CBS News report was wrong.

CBS reported that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is planning to leave her position in the Trump administration by the end of the year. They told the network Sanders is planning to leave at the end of the year. She responded afterward, expressing her love for working for President Trump.

If true, it would be the latest series of shakeups in the White House press department since Hope Hicks resigned as the White House communications director in February.

CBS News, however, reported Sanders had not responded to repeated requests for comment before its story was published. Her first press briefing came after Anthony Scaramucci left the White House July 31, just 10 days after he started.

The biggest concern over such a high turnover rate is the fact that nobody stays long enough to learn the job and do it well.
