Veteran GOP strategist Mike Dubke resigned as White House communications director on Tuesday, Dubke confirmed to Fox News.
Dubke said in a message to associates later obtained by The New York Times that his reason for leaving the post was “personal.”
“The reasons for my departure are personal, but it has been my great honor to serve President Trump and this administration,” Dubke wrote. “It has also been my distinct pleasure to work side-by-side, day-by-day with the staff of the communications and press departments. This White House is filled with some of the finest and hardest working men and women in the American Government.”
Dubke tendered his resignation on May 18, however, he offered to work through President Trump’s first foreign trip and that offer was accepted. Dubke’s tenure is open-ended and it’s unclear if he’ll officially depart the White House before a successor is named. Read more at Fox News.
