Sarah Sanders/ Twitter

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has marked her final day as part of the Trump administration with a tweet thanking the president.

Sanders, whose time as press secretary has been dogged with controversy, said that she was leaving with her 'head held high' and that it had been an 'honour and a privilege' to serve the president.

In the picture that she shared, Sanders was surrounded by members of the Trump administration but on closer observation there appeared to be a bit of a running theme amongst the people in the room, which was pointed out by a few people on Twitter.

This is far from the first time that the Trump administration has been accused of lacking diversity within its ranks, but it is unlikely to cause Sanders to lose any sleep as she no longer occupies a role in the White House.

Her last few months in the role have seen her come under heavy scrutiny as she has failed to hold a press conference since March, with the session lasting just 14 minutes.

She will be replaced in the role by Stephanie Grisham, who is currently the press secretary for the first lady, Melania Trump.
