White House communications director resigns amid tensions

01 June 2017, 01:17 | Colleen Roy

Mr Dubke's last day has not yet been determined.

According to Priebus, Dubke "will remain on board until a transition is concluded". "We've never seen before at this point in a presidency such sweeping reassurance of American interest, and the inauguration of a foreign policy strategy created to bring back the world from growing dangers and perpetual disasters brought on by years of failed leadership", Spicer said.

A damage-control plan assembled by the president's aides would try to wall off the investigations by setting up a war room inside the White House and enlisting a high-powered team of lawyers outside the West Wing.

Although a Harvard graduate, he had little political or administrative experience before the 2016 presidential race, when at times Kushnerappeared to be Trump's de facto campaign manager.

Trump has been more open in discussing the possible departure of Reince Priebus, the White House chief of staff. The White House spokesperson then abruptly ended the briefing, which lasted for about 30 minutes. Mr Trump has entertained formally bringing back his former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, and former deputy campaign manager, David Bossie.

"Dubke and his Crossroads friends did everything they could to kill the Trump movement and failed", a Trump friend told CNN when news of Dubke's new job broke. He later added: "It's an ongoing conversation, and that's a fair way to put it".

White House aides are leaking that President Trump is considering a staff shakeup to stop them from leaking, and the casualty on Monday was communications director Mike Dubke.

As scandal after scandal rocks President Donald Trump's White House, news that his fired ex-campaign manager Corey Lewandowski may return to lead the president's Russian Federation "war room" has, according to The Daily Beast, caused concern among staffers.

- Following reports that Jared Kushner, President Trump's son-in-law and one of his advisers, wanted a back-channel line of communication with Russian officials, some Democrats have called for his security clearance to be revoked. The person wasn't authorized to publicly discuss private policy deliberations and insisted on anonymity.

A senior administration official said Kushner was keeping his head down and focusing on work after the foreign trip. Kushner is also said to have had multiple secret meetings with Russian officials, including Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak. "It is my opinion that numerous leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media", Trump wrote in a series of Twitter posts on Sunday.

"We are focused on the President's agenda", Spicer said. Dunn is quick to point out that staff changes early on are not necessarily a sign of crisis - she herself took over as communications director in April of President Obama's first year, after the administration felt their initial communications strategy wasn't working.

"We have a MASSIVE trade deficit with Germany, plus they pay FAR LESS than they should on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation & military", Trump fired back on Tuesday. "Very bad for U.S. This will change", He tweeted at about 7 a.m. ET.
