White House Communications Director Out

31 May 2017

Trump has been rumored to consider replacing some of his staff with producers from the Fox News television channel. "In terms of staff shakeups, I always read things that simply aren't true ..." Conway said the White House will continue to bring in Cabinet secretaries and other top officials to handle news briefings on topics in their patch.

He added: "It has been a privilege to serve this president". "He's always proven that". Mr Trump has privately pinned some of the blame for his administration's rough start on the White House's communications strategy. But numerous people close to the president and his team are expecting further changes this time.

Last week, reports said that Trump's once-fired campaign manager Corey Lewandowski will return to his side this week.

His exit comes as the White House is weighing broader staff changes to help stanch the damage from deepening crises surrounding his associates' alleged ties to Russian Federation. "He is brilliant with a great sense of humor ... and an incredible ability to make people feel special and aspire to be more than even they thought possible".

Earlier, in late January, the president fired then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates after she instructed the Department of Justice not to defend Trump's Jan. 27 executive order temporarily barring entry to the USA of people from seven predominantly Muslim countries. However, he offered to remain in his job while Trump was on his first worldwide trip.

He added that he offered to stay through the president's first foreign trip to ensure a smooth transition as he left the position.

Trump keeps up criticism of Germany
Trump has used trade deficits with China, Mexico, Canada - and now Germany - as examples of "bad trade deals" for the US. The remarks come as the relationship between Germany and the United States reaches its lowest point in recent decades.

National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was sacked in February after mischaracterizing his conversations with the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak. The person wasn't authorized to publicly discuss private policy deliberations and insisted on anonymity. The official said Kushner was eager to share what he knows with Congress and other investigators.

Lewandowski and Bossie were seen leaving the White House on Monday.

Trump aides had been hoping to get through the trip before making staffing decisions.

Trump accepted Dubke's offer, but his official last day has not been set and he was still expected to be at the White House on Tuesday.

Trump has privately and publicly expressed fury over a litany of bad headlines, lashing out at reporters, alleged "fake news" headlines and staff.

Dubke told coworkers that his reasons are personal, but a shake-up in the Trump administration's communications team has been rumored for weeks.
