Dubke, a longtime Republican consultant, is resigning from the White House after serving for a mere three months. His resignation was tendered on May 18 but he offered to stay while Trump was away on his overseas trip.
The spokesman’s last day has not been determined but when he bolts he plans to return to work at Black Rock group, his communications and public affairs firm.
According to multiple media outlets Dubke, 47, wrote in an email to friends...
“The reasons for my departure are personal, but it has been my great honor to serve President Trump and this administration. 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 didn’t give a reason for his departure but it is being reported that it was because he was frozen out of Trump’s inner circle.
We should all be so lucky.
His exit comes amid growing turmoil within the White House and as Trump has reportedly scaled back the public role of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who is expected to give fewer on-camera briefings from here on out.
This move is perhaps because Spicer will be called on to serve as both press secretary and communications director for the White House again as he did before Dubke came aboard in March.
