Got a minute? Communications director resigns … but no larger moves planned, Trump aides insist … Trump badmouths Germany … and everything else today in US politics. By Tom McCarthy
Donald Trump is “very pleased with the work of his staff”, said Trump staff member Sean Spicer, after communications director Michael Dubke quit and rumors swirled that a broader staff shakeup was imminent.
In terms of quote ‘staff shakeups’, I always read things that simply aren’t true. I work here every day; it’s much more collaborative than people realize. We’re constantly being told by people who’ve never worked in the White House, let alone this White House, what’s going on here.
