White House communications director Mike Dubke resigns

White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Mr Dubke resigned before Mr Trump left for his worldwide trip earlier this month, suggesting that his departure is not linked to any pending shake-ups.

Dubke resigned on May 18, according to Politico's Mike Allen after taking the job in March.

Dubke wrote in a statement that it had been an honor to serve Trump and "my distinct pleasure to work side by side, day by day with the staff of the communications and press departments".

A top White House communications staffer has resigned as President Donald Trump considers a major staff overhaul amid intensifying inquiries into his campaign's dealings with Russian Federation.

The investigation into Russia's links with President Donald Trump's administration team continues to be the rumored reason behind changes in the White House.

Indeed, Dubke offered his resignation before the president's departure, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told The Associated Press, but offered to stay on during the trip.

He described the media's determination to bring down President Donald Trump as unprecedented and targeted.

India beat New Zealand by 45 runs in warm-up tie
In fact, India lost an ODI away series against Bangladesh back in 2015 when Mustafizur was relatively new to global cricket . Kedar Jadhav (31) started his innings positively with a six and Karthik completed a 52-ball half century at the other end.

A Republican consultant, Mr Dubke joined the White House team in February after campaign aide Jason Miller - Mr Trump's original choice for communications director - withdrew from the White House team.

Dubke had been in the process of divesting from Crossroads and Black Rock Group, two communications firms at which he worked before joining the administration, and was nearing the point when he would have had to complete the divestiture, a friend said.

Mainstream media reporters also respected Dubke's background, as a behind the scenes operative who worked in Karl Rove's orbit. David Bossie, who served as a deputy campaign manager for Trump, will not be named communications director.

"There will be more changes, but I don't know how fast they are going to come".

He recently made several changes in how communication is conducted at the White House.

National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was sacked in February after mischaracterizing his conversations with the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak.

On Tuesday, Trump shot back against the Russian Federation probes in a tweet. The official was not authorized to publicly discuss private thinking and spoke on the condition of anonymity. Sean Spicer remains as White House spokesman.
