    WASHINGTON (CNN) - White House communications director Mike Dubke is leaving the White House.
    He told CNN Tuesday he submitted his resignation on May 18 but offered to stay until the end of President Donald Trump's foreign trip. A final day has not been set, Dubke said.

    "It has been a privilege to serve this president," Dubke said in a phone interview.
    Dubke said he had "a good conversation with the President" after submitting his resignation...

    by Kristen Welker, Kristin Donnelly and Erik Ortiz

    White House communications director Mike Dubke is stepping down from his post after just three months on the job, NBC News confirmed Tuesday.

    Dubke tendered his resignation on May 18, but offered to stay on through President Donald Trump's first foreign trip, which ended Saturday. Trump accepted Dubke's offer, but his official last day has not been set and he was still expected to be at the White House on Tuesday...

    Trump communications director resigns

    Associated Press 7:41 a.m. ET May 30, 2017

    Washington — White House communications director Michael Dubke has resigned.

    Kellyanne Conway, White House counselor, has told The Associated Press that Dubke handed in his resignation before President Donald Trump left for his international trip earlier this month.

    In an interview on Fox News on Tuesday, Conway said Dubke “made very clear that 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.” ...

    Rumors of a shake-up on Trump's communications team have been in the wind for a few weeks now. Guessing eventually we will get a better idea of whether he was disgruntled or whether this was one of those 'we're offering you the chance to resign' type things.

    It sure seems like the guy was in over his head. Trump's tweets should have been reined in a long time ago. And you can argue that maybe Trump just wouldn't let him, and maybe that's true. But as communications director, he's also responsible for Spicer, whose track record hasn't been great. He's responsible for seeing to it that leaks don't cost you the news cycle by taking everyone off message. So not hard to see him quitting out of frustration/burnout, but also not hard to see the WH wanting to make a change either.

    Ground Rules and Guidelines

    Welcome to the latest, all new, featured forum on Websleuths.com, POLITIVENT, designed to provide a venue for members with an eye on Capitol Hill to present and discuss their views.

    What this forum is NOT, is a place to lambaste, or sling mud and arrows at fellow members.
    Unlike any other forum on Websleuths, POLITIVENT is unmoderated for the most part. Our Mod Team is stretched to the limit, working very hard to ensure that the rest of the board runs smoothly. They are extremely dedicated volunteers, who signed on because of their interest in missing persons and true crime. As a
    rule, political discussions are contentious, and nerve wracking to moderate. It would be unfair to expect that of our volunteers.

    That stated, we have developed a limited set of ground rules, which apply exclusively to POLITIVENT, separate and apart from every other area of Websleuths.

    GROUND RULES AND GUIDELINES

    • Post at your own risk. When you present an opinion, expect opposition, and be prepared to answer questions, and defend your view. That comes with the territory. As stated above, mods will not answer alerts to settle squabbles and bickering. If you have a serious concern or questions about the forum, you can
      address them in a private message or email (politivent@gmail.com), to Tricia and/or Bessie.



    • Absolutely NO name calling and attacking other members will be allowed. This offense will earn you an automatic 72 hour (or longer) Time Out. For example: “You must be out of your mind”;
      “What an idiotic idea.”; “You’re a moron/dimwit/imbecile.”



    • Absolutely NO outlandish conspiracy theories will be allowed.



    • Sources – As usual, mainstream media (MSM) sources and official press releases take priority over all other sources.



    • Most blogs are allowed as sources, for example, Breitbart, Huffington Post, The Daily Beast, Washington Post, etc. As of now, we don’t have an established list of approved blogs, but as we progress, expect to see some blogs banned.



    • Where applicable, please use this date format at the beginning of thread titles: year.mo.day.
      Ex. 2017.04.18 (date of event, not the date you start the thread). This will provide a chronology, and aid in finding specific topics, by using the sort feature at the bottom of each thread page.
      Since the emphasis is on events, this shouldn’t present a problem



    • The Copyright Rule still applies.



    • As always, the three most basic “rules” should be observed here, and throughout the board: courtesy, respect, and common sense.



    • The above is subject to change at any time.
    I tried to be normal once-- it was the worst two months of my life!
