What did Sarah Sanders say about ‘taking one for the team’ with Kim Jong-un?

FORMER Trump aide Sarah Huckabee Sanders is set to release a memoir detailing her experience inside the White House.

The book, titled Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House, is set to be released next week.

The former press secretary's book is slated to give a "candid, riveting" look at work inside the White House under the Trump administration, according to a blurb on Amazon.

What did Sarah Sanders say about ‘taking one for the team’ with Kim Jong-un?

In her book, Sanders revealed that North Korean leader  Kim Jong-un "nodded and appeared to wink at me" during a summit in Singapore in 2018.

She said she looked up from her notes and saw Kim "wink" at her.

"We made direct eye contact and Kim nodded and appeared to wink at me," Sanders claimed.

She said she was "stunned" and went back to taking her notes.

“… All I could think was, ‘What just happened? Surely Kim Jong-un did not just mark me!?’” Sanders questioned.

President Trump apparently told Sanders, “Kim Jong-un hit on you!”, The Guardian reported.

“He did! He f**king hit on you!”

Sanders then said she told Trump: "Sir, please stop."

She alleged Trump then told her to "go to North Korea and take one for the team."

Sanders claimed the president then said: "Your husband and kids will miss you, but you’ll be a hero to your country!"

What else did she say in her book?

The book, published by St. Martin's Press, gives a look inside the White House under the Trump administration.

A blurb on Amazon says Sanders' memoir "describes what it was like on the front lines and inside the White House".

She discusses her faith, hardships as a working mother in American politics, working with the press, and "her unique role in the historic fight raging between the Trump administration and its critics for the future of our country," the blurb says.

Another story told in the book reveals how during the same Singapore summit, Kim “reluctantly” took a Tic Tac from Trump.

After sensing Kim's hesitation, Trump "dramatically blew into the air to reassure Kim it was just a breath mint,” Sanders said, as reported by The Guardian.

She also wrote that former UN ambassador and national security advisor John Bolton "was a classic case of a senior White House official drunk on power, who had forgotten that nobody elected him to anything,” according to Axios.

When was Sarah Sanders White House press secretary?

Sanders worked as White House press secretary from 2017 until 2019.

In June 2019, the press secretary announced she would be stepping down from her role.

She revealed she would be returning to her home state of Arkansas.

 "I've loved every minute, even the hard minutes," she said at a White House event as spoke of her departure.

She added: "I have three amazing kids and I'm going to spend a little more time with them."

As she departed, Trump encouraged her to follow in her father Mike Huckabee's footsteps and run for governor.

"She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job!" Trump tweeted.

"I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas – she would be fantastic. Sarah, thank you for a job well done!" Trump tweeted.

Who is Sanders married to?
