Sarah Sanders, Raj Shah preparing to leave White House, CBS reports

In an effort to address all the leaks emanating from the Trump administration, there are plans afoot to slowly whittle down the White House communications team (according to the latest batch of leaks).

Even with a smaller than usual workforce, the Trump Administration's White House set a record in turnover rates, which now stands at 51 percent and President Donald Trump isn't even half-way through his first term in office. Despite the responses it received and her snarky tone, Sander's tweet does not actually deny the CBS report that she will be leaving the White House.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded Thursday to Jim Acosta's attempts to interrupt by taking a shot at the CNN correspondent's comprehension abilities.

"You just said it's in the Bible to follow the law", Acosta remarked.

Former communications director Hope Hicks, Jared Kushner's top communications aide Josh Raffel, Trump personal aide John McEntee, congressional communications director Kaelan Dorr, assistant press secretary Natalie Strom deputy media affairs director Tyler Ross and others have moved on. Trump has even eliminated positions altogether, consolidating the number of staffers while giving them each more work.

Well into his second year, Trump has a turnover rate of 51 percent within his top White House cadre, according to an assessment put together by the Brookings Institution. "Right now I think the country looks pretty good and I'm glad to be a part of that process and I'm going to continue to do my job".

"Well, I don't know that there's a need to replace them".

The news outlet said neither Sanders nor Shah replied to multiple requests for comment before publication. They come to the border with nothing, and they throw children in cages.
