WASHINGTON (AP) — White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, whose tenure was marked by a breakdown in regular press briefings and questions about the administration's credibility, as well as her own, will leave her post at the end of the month, President Donald Trump announced Thursday.

Trump said he's encouraging her to run for governor when she returns home to Arkansas, where her father once held the governor's seat.

Sanders is one of Trump's closest and most trusted White House aides and one of the few remaining who worked on his campaign, taking on the job of advocating for and defending a president who had his own unconventional ideas about how to conduct the people's business.

At an unrelated White House event, Trump described Sanders as a "warrior" as he called her to the stage.Read more on NewsOK.com

WASHINGTON (AP) — Taking unprecedented action, a federal watchdog agency recommended Thursday that President Donald Trump fire one of his most ardent defenders, counselor Kellyanne Conway , for repeatedly violating a law that limits political activity by government workers.

The U.S. Office of Special Counsel, which is unrelated to special counsel Robert Mueller's office, said in a letter to Trump that Conway has been a "repeat offender" of the Hatch Act by disparaging Democratic presidential candidates while speaking in her official capacity during television interviews and on social media.

Federal law prohibits employees of the executive branch from using their official authority or influence to affect the result of an election.Read more on NewsOK.com

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump's threatened tariffs on Mexico are set to take effect Monday as planned, the White House said Friday, even as negotiators continued to meet to try to stave off his latest push to force the U.S. ally to stem the flow of Central American migrants into the United States.

By Jill Colvin, Matthew Leeand Luis Alonso LugoThe Associated PressWASHINGTON — Mexican and U.S. officials met late into the day Tuesday at the White House trying to stave off President Donald Trump’s threatened tariffs on all Mexican goods flowing into the United States.
The first tariffs — 5% taxes on imports from Mexico — are to go into effect next Monday, and Trump has said that is “more likely” than not to occur despite stiff and vocal opposition from many fellow Republicans in Congress.
However, there were also hopeful comments earlier Wednesday, including from White House trade adviser Peter Navarro, who said on CNN that there were commitments Mexico could make to avoid the tariffs, which he said “may not have to go into effect precisely because we have the Mexicans’ attention.”
The tariffs carry enormous economic consequences for both countries, and politically they underscore a major ideological split between Trump and his party.Read more on NewsOK.com
