White House communications director resigns amid tensions


Pressed on why Trump's puzzling tweet remained online overnight and whether anyone in the administration was paying attention, Spicer said, "I think the president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant". He shares his insight on the unnamed sources who say Jared Kushner's possible back-channeling was Russia's idea.

"That's the kind of thing that the BBC and, ultimately, a reporter who's now joining The New York Times push out and perpetuate with no apology", Spicer said as he pointed out The New York Times reporter Peter Baker.

Mr. Dubke's resignation comes at a very turbulent time for the administration, as the Federal Bureau of Investigation is in the middle of investigating Trump's alleged links to the Russians.

Trump has yet to sign a major piece of legislation, and he is now facing a series of major decisions, including withdrawing from the Paris climate accord, increasing troops in Afghanistan and naming a new Federal Bureau of Investigation director. She also suggested in the wake of the Trump visit that Europe's relationship with Washington had shifted significantly and reiterated her position that "we in Europe have to take our fate into our own hands".

WASHINGTON (AP) — A top communications aide to President Donald Trump has resigned, in what many inside and outside the White House see as the first shoe to drop before a wider overhaul.

The article describes a December 1 or 2 meeting in which Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and adviser, discussed setting up a direct communication system between Trump and Moscow with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. The meeting was also attended by former national security adviser Michael Flynn, but both Kushner and Flynn were still just private citizens at the time. "Mike will assist with the transition and be a strong advocate for the president and the president's policies moving forward", Priebus said.


Mr. Dubke's departure was rumored for weeks, though he'd been on the job for only three months.

Last week, Politico reported that Trump may be considering bringing on Corey Lewandowski, his first campaign manager.

A Republican consultant, Dubke joined the White House team in February.

"I think that is right, but they're laughing at how easy it is and how our president unfortunately is helping with their agenda", said former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul.

Of communications director Mike Dubke's departure and the near-constant waterfall of stories regarding Trump's unhappiness with his team - with Spicer often coming in for the most direct criticism - the press secretary offered this hard-to-swallow pushback: "The president is very pleased with his team".

"It comes back to the point: I haven't seen anything that leads me to believe that there was any wrongdoing by Jared Kushner or by the Trump campaign", Duffy told CNN. He was an outsider who couldn't build a relationship with the president, and nearly no one in America knew who he was.

He added: "It has been a privilege to serve this president". "Very bad for U.S. This will change", He tweeted at about 7 a.m. ET.
