White House communications director Mike Dubke resigns

White House communications director Mike Dubke resigned on Tuesday. Dubke officially tendered his resignation on May 18, but agreed to work through President Trump's first foreign trip.

“It is true. It has been a privilege to serve this president.

"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.

"This White House is filled with some of the finest and hardest working men and women in the American Government," Dubke said.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway also confirmed Dubke's resignation.

"I know he's worked very hard here but people in administrations tend to leave on their own volition as well. They find that working 18-hour days are maybe not what's best for them.

:What I will say is that he has expressed his desire to leave the White House and made very clear he would see through the president's international trip and come to work every day and work hard even through that trip because there was much to do here back at the White House," Conway said.
