White House communications director resigns amid tensions

White House communications director resigns amid tensions

Spicer discussed ongoing possible connections to Jared Kushner and Russians, the president's global trip, and other topics.

Epshteyn, a Trump campaign adviser who briefly served in the White House press office, confirmed to ABC News that he has received a lengthy list of questions from the House Intelligence Committee. Just back from his nine-day trip to the Middle East and Europe, Trump dismissed recent reports as "fake news".

Congressional investigations into the Russian Federation issue have expanded to include Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, ABC News reported on Tuesday.

In direct contrast to both Spicer's and Trump's attacks on the mainstream news media for using anonymous sourcing, in this case - when the article in question supports a version of reality of which he and his approve - Spicer appears to think such methods are legitimate. "This White House is filled with some of the finest and hardest working men and women in the American government".

While his resignation comes as somewhat of a surprise, the veteran GOP strategist's resignation from one of the most prominent positions in the Trump administration could set precedent for other White House officials to leave too. "Mike will assist with the transition and be a strong advocate for the president and the president's policies moving forward".

"Dubke and his Crossroads friends did everything they could to kill the Trump movement and failed", a Trump friend told CNN when news of Dubke's new job broke.

Mr. Dubke revealed in the interview that Trump accepted his resignation "immediately" in their private meeting on May 18, more than a week before the Federal Bureau of Investigation focused its Russian Federation probe on Trump's inner circle - particularly his son-in-law and one of his most vital White House advisers, Jared Kushner.

Lewandowski's imminent return is the reported cause of "senior Trump administration officials gnashing their teeth" in trepidation for the president's former campaign manager to come into the Trump administration in a "crisis management" capacity.

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

Trump did not bring Sean Spicer into a close circle of advisers whom he took to meet Pope Francis during his trip to Rome, prompting sympathy from even the most jaded reporters who spend most of their day mocking his role in the White House.

Violence first broke out in Saharanpur about 40 days ago following a procession to mark Ambedkar Jayanti. He is scheduled to visit Shabbirpur village which was the epicentre of the caste-based clashes.

Trump's potential plans for a shakeup of the White House remain under wraps, and it's yet unclear how changes in his administration might affect the Russian Federation probe.

News emerged early that Michael Dubke, the communications director of three months, was leaving his post.

The latest revelations to emerge last week involved Trump's son-in-law and top aide, Jared Kushner.

"I think he's very pleased with the work of his staff", Spicer said.

"I honestly can't say that it's going to be a wave", one official said, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss internal matters at the White House.

At the weekend, White House National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn - who was the second-in-command at Goldman Sachs before joining the White House - declared the President's economic development deal with Saudi Arabia to be unlike anything he had seen in his 30 years in business.

Trump posted a tweet Tuesday saying "we have a MASSIVE trade deficit with Germany, plus they pay FAR LESS than they should on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation & military".

"They have talked to many people, including me", Mr Bossie said. "Very bad for U.S. This will change".

President Donald Trump says celebrity Kathy Griffin "should be ashamed of herself" for appearing in a video holding what looked like Trump's bloody, severed head.
