Top Trump aide exits as wider White House overhaul expected

06 June 2017

President Donald Trump speaks during a news conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos in the East Room of the White House in Washington, Thursday, May 18, 2017.

"Multiple reports now say that he discussed opening a secret line of communications that could be monitored by Russian intelligence but not American intelligence, which would be disqualifying", he said.

White House communications director Michael Dubke announced his resignation Tuesday.

In the Monmouth poll, deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders fared a little bit better than Conway, Spicer and Trump, with more than half of respondents voicing no opinion on her, while 23 percent said that she helps the administration and 22 percent said that she hurts.

"You know I've been very clear, I want to make sure this president's agenda gets done, which is tax reform and health care reform and building a wall on our Southern border, and all of the things that he pledged during the campaign", he said.

Asked at an off-camera briefing for reaction to upcoming congressional testimony from fired FBI Director James Comey, press secretary Sean Spicer referred questions for the first time to the newly named outside lawyer.

His on-camera briefing on Tuesday was his first in 15 days - which was largely understandable because he spent much of the previous two weeks traveling overseas with President Trump.

Trump has long believed that he is his most effective spokesperson and has groused about supporters and aides not defending him vigorously enough.

With that, the White House press corps laughed. Neither the White House nor Trudeau's office responded to requests for comment.

"They have talked to many people, including me", Bossie said. While his departure day is still unknown, he resigned on May 18th in a private meeting with president Trump and offered to stay on until the President completed his first global trip to ease the transition.

"It's rather astonishing that he was seeking a back channel to Putin's team as a way to avoid US intelligence interception", Raskin told Bethesda Beat Tuesday.

A president "doesn't carry with him a secure phone", Chollet said.

Dubke resigned just before Trump left on his foreign trip but will stay on until a transition is concluded, Reince Priebus, the White House chief of staff, said. The FBI probe "coupled with the president's habit of undercutting his staff" have "driven away candidates for West Wing jobs that normally would be among the most coveted in American politics", the newspaper reported.
