During an interview with The New Yorker, Sarah Huckabee Sanders spoke out about her faith and her position in the Trump administration.
She admitted that she does not expect everyone that she works with to think and believe like her. According to Sanders, it is necessary to work in an area where she could make a positive impact.
“Frankly, if people of faith don’t get involved in the dirty process, then you’re missing the entire point of what we’re called to do,” Sanders said. “You’re not called to go into the places where everyone already thinks like you and is a believer —you have to go onto a stage where they’re not.”
Sanders has been an extremely strong supporter for President Trump during her time as press secretary. However, many have criticized her support of the president’s policies.

Sanders claimed that she felt that it is important for people of faith to impact places that have different beliefs. While she claimed she was not specifically talking about the White House, it shows her commitment to having a positive impact on the nation’s capital.
“You have to take that message into the darkest places, and the dirtiest places, and the most tainted and dysfunctional places,” Sanders said. “If you can influence even one person, that’s what you’re supposed to do.”
