Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders declined to endorse Donald Trump when the Fox News anchor pressed her on whether she planned to do so.
Sanders rose to national prominence while serving as Trump’s White House press secretary.
“Your bio on your official page as governor describes you as a ‘trusted confidant of President Trump,'” Fox host Shannon Bream asked. “Did you talk about his ’24 run? Do you approve of him on that?”
Sanders had many kind words for the former president — but stopped short of an endorsement.

“I love the president, have a great relationship with him,” Sanders said. “I know our country would be infinitely better off if he were in office now instead of Joe Biden. But right now, my focus is not 2024. It’s focusing here in Arkansas and doing everything we can to empower the people of this state and making sure I deliver on the promises I made in the last two years.”
Bream pressed Sanders about the potential endorsement.
“What kind of timeline do you have for making a decision?” Bream asked. “Want to see who else makes it to the primary? Are you waiting for the nominee? “
“My focus is not on 2024,” Sanders said. “On what we can deliver in this legislative session. I’m not going to set an arbitrary timeline. I don’t really focus on that. “
Bream continued by bringing up an article from 2021 in which Sanders was discussed as a possible VP pick.
“You’ve just been sworn in,” Bream said. “Are you already feeling the pressure of future speculation?”
“I feel the pressure of giving this legislative session,” Sanders said dryly. “The only thing our team and I are focused on is delivering on what we set out to do.”
