Bill Shine resigns as White House communications chief, will join Trump campaign

Bill Shine, President Donald Trump's fifth communications director, has resigned.

"Assistant to the president and communications director Bill Shine offered his resignation to the president yesterday evening, and the president accepted", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

The reporting quickly confirmed this reading-between-the-lines.

The president commended Shine for an "outstanding job" in the administration.

"We will miss him in the White House, but look forward to working together on the 2020 Presidential Campaign, where he will be totally involved".

Current and former administration officials told The Washington Post that Trump had been complaining about negative media coverage over the past few months, which he partly blamed on Shine.


Shine statement: "Serving President Trump and this country has been the most rewarding experience of my entire life", he said.

The two men had a number of disagreements in recent weeks, said aides, who were granted anonymity to speak freely. The New York Times reported in January that Trump has openly expressed skepticism about his role, in which he advised the president on such things as stagecraft and messaging.

Trump's campaign manager, Brad Parscale, said that Shine's addition to the re-election campaign will make the campaign "stronger".

When Shine joined the administration, he was viewed as an experienced hand whose television experience could help shape Trump's message. The veteran Fox News exec, who rose to co-president of the news network when Roger Ailes got the hook, left within a year of that promotion.

This habit may be part of the reason why his previous four communications directors - Michael Dubke, Sean Spicer (in an acting role), Anthony Scaramucci, and Hope Hicks - couldn't last long in the position. "Thank you to Bill and his wonderful family!" "It is a big loss for the White House, but a huge gain for the President's reelection campaign".
