Adviser: Trump's Hostility Toward Germany Will Hurt US Workers

Donald Trump is "very pleased" with the performance of his media team and is looking forward to push his agenda, the White House said today, a day after the United States president's communications director Michael Dubke resigned.

The White House communications director Michael Dubke has resigned.

Spicer pushed back Tuesday on the idea that a broader reorganization was imminent, but he acknowledged the president is frustrated with news stories "that are absolutely false, that are not based in fact".

- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 28, 2017....it is very possible that those sources don't exist but are made up by fake news writers. He joined the administration about a month after the President's inauguration in January and has reportedly struggled to mesh well with Mr Trump. "This White House is filled with some of the finest and hardest working men and women in the American Government". The probes have come increasingly close to Trump's inner circle, with investigators requesting documents from Trump's campaign associates and the President's son-in-law Jared Kushner under scrutiny for his contacts with Russian officials. Epshteyn said. "Again, if you have a problem with how the president is handling his foreign policy, you can speak at the ballot box in three and a half years".

"Dubke and his Crossroads friends did everything they could to kill the Trump movement and failed", a Trump friend told CNN when news of Dubke's new job broke. A final day has not been set, Dubke said.

Last week, Politico reported that Trump may be considering bringing on Corey Lewandowski, his first campaign manager.

Ivanka Trump was spied on the White House South Lawn speaking with the legal team's chief, Marc Kasowitz, on Sunday afternoon. He didn't think it was cause for people to be concerned about the President's rogue tweets, offering up this 77-character answer: "I think the President and a small group of people know exactly what he meant".

Rouhani says hopeful Europe won't follow Trump's lead on Iran
Rouhani also criticised Saudi Arabia, Tehran's main regional rival, just hours after Trump departed the country bound for Israel. In the meantime, Rouhani said Iran will continue to support the Syrian and Iraqi governments in their fight against terrorism.

White House sources confirm for Breitbart News that Spicer will stick around in his job at the press office.

In a statement, Dubke says: "It has been my great honor to serve President Trump and this administration".

"He has expressed his desire to leave the White House and made very clear that he would see through the president's global trip", White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said in an interview on Fox News, referring to Trump's first overseas trip to the Middle East and Europe that ended on Saturday.

Aides described a White House where no one's position, not even Jared Kushner's, feels entirely secure.

"I honestly can't say that it's going to be a wave", one official said, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss internal matters at the White House.

The president seemed to make a joke about the incident several hours later, tweeting: "Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe"??? Very bad for U.S. This will change".

But that would also require a concerted effort by the President himself to avoid discussing the matter, something he hasn't demonstrated a willingness to do, at least on Twitter.
