It's been a few months since we've seen Sarah Sanders appear regularly in front of the camera after she announced in June she was stepping down from her White House post, but we're about to find her on our TV screens a whole lot more. Friday marked the ex-White House press secretary's debut as an analyst for Fox News, and one thing that was made perfectly clear during her spot on the morning's Fox and Friends: She's still "all-in" on President Trump, per Politico. "They still see me as somebody who is a very pro-Trump supporter. I'm not going to change my position," the 37-year-old said in regard to criticism she still attracts. "It would be very odd to go from doing what I was doing, to all of a sudden doing something different." She added that she "loved" working for Trump and that she can't wait to see what he does "for six more years."

In case you were wondering if her old boss tuned in for her inaugural appearance, wonder no more. "Great interview of Sarah Sanders by @foxandfriends," Trump tweeted shortly after her showing. "She is a terrific person with a great future!" Meanwhile, Sanders is wading into a second type of media: the book world. The Miami Herald notes Sanders has a deal with St. Martin's Press to publish her memoir, a still-untitled tome that's set to come out in 2020—shortly before a rumored possible run in 2022 for Arkansas governor. Per a statement, the book will focus on "the most dramatic and challenging moments" of her job under Trump, but don't expect a negative take. "My experience was extremely positive. My book will be positive," she says, per Politico. More of her Fox appearance here, including her take on Trump's "magic wand" for manufacturing, and how "99%" of the attacks against her are from women. (More Sarah Huckabee Sanders stories.)
