Dubke served for just three months before tendering his resignation May 18.

His May 18 resignation came almost three months to the day that he was reported to have accepted the job as co-pilot of the White House press and communications shop on February 17. It will be updated.

Dubke's resignation was first reported by Mike Allen of Axios in his Tuesday morning newsletter.

Sean Spicer will remain press secretary, but do fewer on-camera briefings, and Trump himself with play a larger role in communicating the White House message to the press.

President Donald Trump speaks at a wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day, May 29, 2017 in Arlington, Virginia.

Dubke was the rare Trump newcomer in a White House in which personal relationships and proximity to the president is the currency.

The reshuffle follows reports of disarray in the White House communications team. The communications director oversees the White House messaging and promotes its agenda.
