Sarah Huckabee Sanders, former press secretary for President Trump, finally is sharing her side of the story in a new book, “Speaking for Myself.”
“The honest part of my story is that I loved my time at the White House,” she said. “Certainly, like everyone, the president isn’t perfect. He’s not always going to be easy to work with, but the thing that I knew every single day was that the president loved this country and was willing to fight for it, even if he had to fight alone.”
Sanders also had to fight, specifically to defend her reputation against liberals who couldn’t stand her.
“Their whole mantra is all about tolerance as long as you agree with them,” she said.. “And because I didn’t agree with them on policy, and I was a supporter and a very vocal supporter of the president, I was fair game and everything about me was fair game, everything from my appearance, my weight, my makeup, my fitness to be a parent.”
However, Sanders knew who to really listen to: “I wasn’t looking for anybody else to define me. I knew who I was. I knew that God had created me for a purpose, and that gave me the confidence I needed to go in and face every day.”
Sanders also was armed with the word of God. A devotional book called “Jesus Calling” was her saving grace starting with that first briefing.”
Somebody had left a leather-bound copy of it in the office,” she says. “I grabbed it. I went into the other room, and I read it immediately,” she said. “I just was kind of like, ‘I’m at peace.’ I’m either going to be great, or I’m going to be terrible, but I’m as ready as I’m going to be. I felt calm and just ready to go in.”
