Mike Dubke, President Trump’s communications director, has resigned three months after he was hired in March to revamp the White House media strategy.
The experienced Republican strategist tendered his resignation letter on May 18.
Dubke offered to remain in his post to help manage communications during Trump’s overseas trip, and Trump accepted.
“I want to thank Mike Dubke for his service to President Trump and this administration,” chief of staff Reince Priebus said in a statement. “We appreciate Mike and are very grateful for his service to President Trump and our country.”
According to Priebus, Dubke “will remain on board until a transition is concluded.”
“Mike will assist with the transition and be a strong advocate for the president and the president’s policies moving forward,” said Priebus.
Dubke’s last day has not yet been set.
