WASHINGTON (TIP): A top White House communications staffer has resigned as President Donald Trump considers a major staff overhaul. The departure of Michael Dubke, Trump’s communications director, comes as aides say Trump has grown increasingly frustrated by allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and revelations of possible ties between his campaign and Moscow.
“It has been my great honor to serve President Trump and this administration,” Dubke wrote in a statement. He added, “It has also been my distinct pleasure to work side-by-side, day-by-day with the staff of the communications and press departments. ” Dubke’s last day has not yet been determined. A Republican consultant, Dubke joined the White House team in February after campaign aide Jason Miller. (Reuters)
