White House is discussing moving Spicer out of daily spokesman role

  • The White House is considering taking Sean Spicer out of the daily spokesman role.
  • Spicer currently serves as press secretary and communications director.

The White House is considering shifting press secretary Sean Spicer away from the daily spokesman role and into a senior communications role but no such move is imminent, a senior White House official said on Monday.

Spicer has been a frequent source of criticism for his performance at the White House lectern during daily news briefings, although President Donald Trump has stood by him through a variety of controversies.

Spicer is currently doing double duty as press secretary and communications director after the previous communications director, Michael Dubke, resigned May 30.
