Mike Dubke’s resignation became a real surprise, the 47-year-old journalist has worked closely with White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
The White House communications directors Dubke helped in the managing communications strategy and served as a behind-the-scenes player. His work never was seen but it was extremely important for whole press pool of the White House. In particular, Mike responded to crises such as the firing of Mr Comey, as well as rollout plans for policy and other projects.
In his farewell email to colleagues on Tuesday morning, Dubke wrote:
“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.”
Despite the rumours, Mike Dubke left the White House on good terms, according to Axios News, a politics website which first reported his exit. The site noted that Mr Dubke tendered his resignation on 18 May, saying his official goodbye on 30 May – after the US President returned from his overseas trip to the Middle East and Europe on Saturday.
The name of Dubke’s successor is still not known, the White House keeps silence in this regards, however, it may be Corey Lewandowski — this gentleman was worked for Mr Trump as a campaign manager. On Monday, he was spotted leaving the White House, so, it’s pretty logical to suggest who will replace Dubke soon.
