Trump's Communication Director Mike Dubke Resigns

White House communications director Michael Dubke resigned early Tuesday morning.

To start off the week, we have learned that Mike Dubke, President Trump's communications director, has made a decision to step down from his position in the White House.

Fresh off Trump's first official trip overseas, White House communications director Michael Dubke announced his resignation Tuesday in what many inside and outside the White House see as the first shoe to drop.

"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. His final day has not been determined.

Dubke, 47, who had been tasked with helping to shape the president's message, only served at his administration post for about three months.

In a resignation note to friends and colleagues, Dubke said it was his "distinct pleasure to work side-by-side, day-by-day with the staff of the communications and press departments". He's not a Trump loyalist and did not work for the campaign.

According to Priebus, Dubke "will remain on board until a transition is concluded".

The outgoing communications director was a last-minute addition to the administration following the resignation of Jason Miller, who served on Trump's campaign.

Contacts between Trump associates and Russian officials during the campaign coincided with what USA intelligence agencies concluded was a Kremlin effort through computer hacking, fake news and propaganda to boost Trump's chances of winning the White House.

Trump has repeatedly expressed frustration with internal leaks to the media from the White House.

A source close to the administration - who blames a "hostile" press for some of Trump's problems - said that a major shakeup is needed to get the White House back on track. A final day has not been set, Dubke said. Before joining the White House in February, he had been a Republican strategist and founder of Crossroads Media.

"I did not know Mike Dubke before he came on as communications director, did not know him well", Conway said.

"Your question supposes facts that have not been confirmed", Spicer said, when asked about Trump's son-in-law, top aide Jared Kushner, and whether he sought to coordinate secret discussions with Russian officials after the November elections.

National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was sacked in February after mischaracterizing his conversations with the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak.

Other potential changes are also expected to the White House communications office, according to Axios, including fewer on-camera briefings with White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. The official was not authorized to publicly discuss private thinking and spoke on the condition of anonymity.
