WASHINGTON http://www.airmax95saleoutlet.com/ , July 21 (Xinhua) -- Sarah Sanders, Principle Deputy White House Press Secretary, will replace Sean Spicer as the new press secretary, newly appointed White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci said Friday.
"The president loves Sarah, he thinks she is doing a phenomenal job, I agree with him," Scaramucci told a daily briefing.
Sanders has been appearing in most White House press briefings in the past two months, especially after Spicer took on more duties after White House Communications Director Mike Dubke left his position in early June.
Sanders, 34, was named deputy White House press secretary after last year's presidential election, and made her first appearance at a White House press briefing in May.
Sanders is the daughter of Mike Huckabee, former Governor of Arkansas, and has been involved in her father's political activities since early age.

SEOUL, Aug. 3 (Xinhua) -- South Korean stocks tumbled Thursday as foreign investors dumped local listed stocks, ending the third-day rally through Wednesday.
The benchmark Korea Composite Stock Price Index (KOSPI) declined 40.78 points, or 1.68 percent, to settle at 2,386.85. Trading volume stood at 299.95 million shares worth 6.2 trillion won (5.9 billion U.S. dollars).
The KOSPI extended its initial loss throughout the session as foreigners dumped 404 billion won worth of domestic stocks.
Geopolitical risks escalated on the Korean Peninsula as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) test-fired what it called an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) around midnight on July 28.
U.S. President Donald Trump signed a bill imposing new sanctions on the DPRK into law overnight, boosting worry about the already heightened tensions on the peninsula.
The South Korean government announced comprehensive measures to control speculative investment in real estate, fueling concerns about the possible slump in the property market.
The government also unveiled a plan to revise a tax code as part of efforts to impose higher corporate tax on big-profit corporations and finance the future welfare demand.
Institutional and individual investors bought shares worth 10 billion won and 357 billion won respectively, limiting the KOSPI's further decline.
Market watchers said the Trump administration's hardline policy toward the DPRK boosted geopolitical risks, among foreign investors, noting that the revised tax code would increase tax burden on big companies.
