White House Communications Director Michael Dubke resigned from his position on May 18th, but offered to stay on through President Trump’s first foreign trip to ensure a smooth transition took place, according to reports Monday.

President Trump immediately accepted Dubke’s offer to say on through Trump’s first foreign trip.

Dubke wrote a letter to friends explaining his decision, “In a private meeting with the President on Thursday, May 18th I tendered my resignation as Assistant to the President for Communications. I offered to remain in the position through the President’s international trip and he accepted.”

“The reasons for my departure are personal, but it has been my great honor to serve President Trump and this administration,” Dubke continued. “It has also been my distinct pleasure to work side-by-side, day-by-day with the staff of the communications and press departments.”

Dubke concluded, “this White House is filled with some of the finest and hardest working men and women in the American Government.”

While the administration has not announced an official last day for Dubke, it is evident from reports that Dubke is still working at the White House to help oversee a smooth transition.

Dubke, 47, began working for the Trump administration three months ago and provided much-needed insight and assistance to the White House communications department, which under Dubke’s leadership has improved greatly.

Dubke has been working in political affairs since the 1980s, founding Crossroads Media in 2001. More recently, Dubke helped launch Black Rock Group, a strategic communications and public affairs firm based in Arlington, Virginia.

As of now it’s unclear where Dubke will go next, but according to those that have worked with Dubke in the past his exceptional skill and work ethic will be a welcome addition to wherever that might be.
