After Month-Long Delay, Trump Picks Communications Director

Longtime GOP strategist expected to be named as early as Friday for the long-term strategic role…

Trump Communications Director

Nearly a month after taking the oath of office, President Trump picked GOP operative Mike Dubke to be his White House Communications Director. The announcement could come as early as Friday, according to reports.

Dubke’s hiring is expected to relieve White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer from double duty – he was serving in both press secretary and communications director roles since Trump campaign aide Jason Miller abruptly left Trump world before Inauguration Day.

Dubke founded Crossroads Media, a GOP media services firm, and the Black Rock Group, a strategic communications and public affairs firm. Both are located in Alexandria, Virginia.

Several media reports incorrectly stated Dubke worked for American Crossroads, the GOP super PAC founded by former strategist for President Bush, Karl Rove. While the two groups share a similar name, Dubke did not work for American Crossroads, though that organization was one of Dubke’s numerous clients.
