Donald Trump weighed in on the matter during a recent interview.

“Replacing Sarah is not going to be easy … a lot of people want the job,” he said. “We have four or five people that really want it, very good people, very good names. But Sarah has done a fantastic job.”

Trump went on to repeat his previous prediction that Sanders is going to “be governor,” adding that she “won’t talk to us anymore.”

He didn’t offer specifics about those in line for the soon-to-be-vacant position. Some names commonly mentioned among the possibilities are current deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley, and U.S. Department of State spokesperson Heather Nauert.
