Trump's Communications Director Mike Dubke Set to Leave White House

White House communications director Michael Dubke has resigned.

The veteran Republican strategist reportedly handed in his resignation over a week ago on May 18, just before President Donald Trump's first official trip overseas.

Dubke had originally replaced Jason Miller, who declined to accept the the White House job shortly after he was tapped to lead the communications office in December.

The Republican president has also repeatedly expressed frustration with internal leaks coming from the White House.

When former FBI Director James Comey was sacked in early May, White House press secretary Sean Spicer was caught unprepared to respond to questions and gave a late night, open-air press briefing to reporters after conferring with colleagues near some bushes.

At the same time, following Dubke's appointment, there were also reports of discontent among those loyal to Trump, both inside and outside the White House.

Spicer has been criticized repeatedly for his handling of questions during press briefings, although Trump told Fox News that he is "doing a good job, but he gets beat up".

The publication alleges that the President did not have a foreign policy doctrine ahead of his first foreign trip, and that was essentially one of Mr. Dubke's responsibilities as communications director.

When resigning, Dubke sent an email to friends and associates on Tuesday morning (May 30) saying, "It has been my great honor to serve President Trump and this administration".

The president has reportedly been considering tapping combative former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and ex-deputy campaign manager David Bossie to help lead a so-called "war room" to respond to the special counsel's investigation into any ties between his associates, from either outside or inside the White House, and Russian Federation.

However, POLITICO alleges that the U.S. President has in recent days been considering bringing back those who worked for him during his 2016 election campaign.

"He is very skilled in what he does. which is selling the message", said Carl Forti, Dubke's partner in Black Rock Group.

Rumors of impending shake-ups have come and gone in the Trump White House before.

Bossie also said that he agrees with calls to end the daily press briefings at the White House.

Trump has long believed that he is his most effective spokesperson and has groused about supporters and aides not defending him vigorously enough. He offered to stay through the overseas trip, and Trump accepted.

Trump adminstration's political agenda is being increasingly stalled by an ever growing scandal about secret meetings between senior Trump officials and Russian diplomats before the United States billionaire took office in January.
