Sarah Huckabee Sanders may have only just left the White House to join Fox News as a contributor, but President Donald Trump has already nominated her for a new position.
The president has nominated his former press secretary to join the Fulbright Scholarship Board.
“Grateful to @realDonaldTrump to be named to the @fulbrightboard — established by the late U.S. Senator from my home state of Arkansas,” Sanders tweeted in response to the new position.

Sanders would be taking on a three-year term with the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board. She stepped down from her previous position in the White House at the end of June and then joined Fox News as a contributor. She served in the White House for nearly two years.
The J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board works to award U.S. scholars, foreign exchange students, as well as visiting scholars. It issues thousands of grants every single year.
Sanders was one of the most beloved members of Trump’s administration, and people took to social media to express support for her jumping back into the public sector.
Congratulations! If there’s anything I can do to help down here n El Salvador, let me know. Sen. Fulbright was my hero when I was in college. Our nephew, a native of El Salvador, won a Fulbright scholarship & went to Harvard for a degree in public policy. You are the best!

When Sanders left the White House, the president suggested she run for governor of Arkansas.
“She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job! I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas — she would be fantastic. Sarah, thank you for a job well done!” he tweeted.

Sanders called working as press secretary the “honor of a lifetime.”
Sanders is also reportedly working on a book that covers her time in the White House.
