Fox News is reporting that President Trump's White House communications director Mike Dubke has left his post.

He said that it's been a "privilege to serve this president" and cited his reasons for leaving as "personal".

There has been speculation for weeks that a shakeup of senior staff in the West Wing was nearing.

Some thought that it might be Reince Priebus, Steve Bannon, or Kellyanne Conway on their way out.

The departure of Dubke, a longtime GOP operative, signals a willing shift in how the President's policies and agenda are portrayed.

Who fills Dubke's role will be telling in how the White House wants to package the Trump agenda. Many Trump loyalists would like to see somone like Steve Bannon or Kellyanne Conway take over the White House messaging as their styles are more aggressive and part of what helped Trump secure his historic victory this November.
