White House to name Mike Dubke as communications director

Crossroads Media founder Mike Dubke will be named as the White House communications director, taking over duties now being handled in by Press Secretary Sean Spicer in a dual role, multiple reports said early Friday, citing unnamed sources.

Dubke could step into his role as early as Friday - the four-week mark of President Donald Trump's term. Mr. Dubke is expected to work alongside Mr. Spicer, who will remain as press secretary, Mr. Acosta tweeted further.

However, the reported appointment could further ruffle feathers in the White House, with the network claiming some of Trump's long-time team members will be angered by the choice.

The decision to appoint Dubke has surprised some of President Trump's close allies, with one anonymously marveling to CNN that "Dubke and his Crossroads friends did everything they could to kill the Trump movement and failed".

These data indicate that, despite the high headline inflation over the past month, the general trend in prices is far steadier. Inflation was up 0.6 per cent for the month, above the consensus forecast of 0.3 per cent and the highest since February 2013.

"Dubke's work with Crossroads Media is rankling some longtime Trump loyalists who would rather see a veteran from campaign in Comms job", Mr. Acosta tweeted.

Dubke has been involved in local, state and federal politics since 1988, according to his bio on Crossroads Media's website.

According to his Crossroads Media biography, Dubke has been involved in local, state and federal politics for almost three decades. Dubke also leads the Virginia-based Black Rock Group, a strategic communications and public affairs firm.
