White House Communications Director Resigns After 3 Months

Share

The White House said on Wednesday it will no longer answer questions about the ongoing investigations into Donald Trump's alleged links to Russian Federation.

As reported by The Washington Examiner, investigation surrounding Russia's alleged involvement in the 2016 USA presidential election has expanded to Trump's son-in-law.

In a statement, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said Mr Dubke tendered his resignation just before Mr Trump departed for his first official trip overseas.

Mr. Dubke offered his resignation earlier this month, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said on Tuesday, but offered to stay on during the President's first foreign trip.

Trump should not be allowed to evade accountability in the daily briefing just because it generates negative headlines that prompt angry late night tweets. Jokes about Spicer's response to Trump's "covfefe" tweet abounded on social media, all revolving around the basic principle that Spicer would somehow defend the tweet by claiming that its meaning should have been obvious.

Spicer's evasion comes as the White House is said to be considering revamping its communications strategy, possibly by having cabinet secretaries hold more on-camera briefings while Spicer does less.

It isn't always necessary for a president to have a strong command on the finer details of policies; they can set the overarching goal and others can deal with the specifics.

"Our job, we are focused on the president's agenda and all, going forward all questions on these matters will be referred to outside counsel Marc Kasowitz". Dubke also led the Virginia-based Black Rock Group, a strategic communications and public affairs firm.

Trump has been more open in discussing the possible departure of Reince Priebus, the White House chief of staff.

Aside from Kasowitz, the White House is considering bringing on old campaign hands to help manage the fallout. Mr Bossie, a former deputy campaign manager, signalled that he does not plan to join the staff, citing family concerns, one person close to the discussions said on Tuesday.

"If I can be helpful, I've been very clear I want to make sure this president's agenda gets done", Lewandowski said during his Fox News appearance.

Another congressional source, who also requested anonymity, said Democrats were "informed and consulted" before the subpoenas were issued. It reported that Cohen was involved in a back-channel plan, which never came to fruition, that would have involved a peace agreement between Russian Federation and Ukraine, and the lifting of U.S. sanctions against Moscow.

"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. He became an intermediary between the USA and Mexico, and the US and China as well.
