Report: Sarah Sanders and Raj Shah planning to leave White House

The tweet came shortly after CBS News said both Sanders and principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah were reportedly planning to leave the White House, citing "sources inside the White House and close to the administration".

"That is actually repeated a number of times throughout the Bible", she said as Acosta protested.

In recent months, Border Patrol agents have split up at least hundreds of migrant families under the Trump administration's new "zero-tolerance" policy mandating that every person caught illegally crossing the border face criminal prosecution. She responded afterward, expressing her love for working for President Trump.

"Does the president take responsibility for his policy change?" the reporter later asked.

"I will say that I never get phone calls from the media", Trump falsely claimed in an address to the Conservative Political Action Conference previous year, as he complained about recent reports in the Wall Street Journal and New York Times.

Sanders demanded the reporter calm down. "Come on, Sarah", Karem shouted out of turn. Whether Trump says "you're fired" or a staffer finally gets fed up and quits, the administration has been unable to keep positions filled, if they've filled them at all.

On Wednesday, reporters were allowed for the first time to see a Texas facility housing almost 1,500 immigrant children separated from their parents by the USA government.

Sanders deflected the question by claiming Karem was simply looking for "more TV time".
