White House Communications Director, Mike Dubke Resigns



By Ganiyat Ganiyu

Mike Dubke, White House communications director has resigned three months after being hired by President Donald Trump.

Dubke, an experienced Republican strategist, was hired in March to revamp the White House media strategy.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer will reportedly hold on to his position, but there will be fewer media briefings.

The reshuffle follows reports of disarray in the White House communications team.

Mr Dubke tendered his resignation on 18 May and is leaving on good terms, according to Axios News.

Dubke, 47, helped found Crossroads Media, a Republican advertising firm in Virginia. His impending departure comes as the administration remains mired in political turmoil involving the Russian hacking scandal — and questions of whether other communications team members could see their roles in the White House shift significantly.

Mr Dubke, who previously worked as senior partner for Republican political advertising company Crossroads Media, was not part of the Trump campaign and was not seen as a loyalist.
