His resignation came just three months into the job and amid reports of a reshuffle to steady the White House communications team in disarray.

Dubke began his term in mid-February, a few weeks into Trump's term, and resigned May 18, but offered to stay through the Trump's overseas trip, which the president accepted.

Trump plans to bring in new aides to the White House, adding experienced political professionals including a former campaign manager, according to administration officials and persons close to the president.

Mr Dubke wrote in a statement that it had been an honour to serve Mr Trump and "my distinct pleasure to work side by side, day by day with the staff of the communications and press departments".

MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle said on Tuesday that sources have told her that a lot of White House staffers will walk away if President Trump is serious about bringing his former campaign officials back into the fold.

White House communications director Mike Dubke is leaving the administration, he said Tuesday, amid swirling speculation about a possible Trump staff shakeup.

Indeed, Dubke offered his resignation before the president's departure, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told The Associated Press, but offered to stay on during the trip. More departures could be coming as soon as this week.

On Monday, David Bossie and Corey Lewandowski both met with Donald Trump, allegedly to discuss taking positions within the White House. Mike tendered his resignation just before the president's historic worldwide trip and offered to remain on board until a transition is concluded.

It was not immediately clear when his last day will be, and he told the publication his reasons for leaving are "personal" and that he intends to return to his communications firm, the Black Rock Group.

As the Russian Federation probe rages and continues to be a big headache for President Trump, POLITICO alleges that he told friends weeks prior to Mr. Dubke's resignation that he was unhappy with how the communications director operates.

The latest revelations to emerge last week involved Mr Trump's son-in-law and top aide, Jared Kushner.

Both men have been the target of criticism from Trump allies for how they handled the fallout from the president's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey and the ensuing escalation of the Russian Federation investigation. A White House spokeswoman strongly denied that possibility Saturday. There have also been rumors that Spicer's on-camera briefings will be scaled back, but he was scheduled to conduct one at 2 p.m. on Tuesday.
