White House press secretary Sean Spicer is set to move into a new role in the Trump administration, according to multiple reports published Monday.
Bloomberg reported that President Trump is considering elevating Spicer to a more senior role that will broadly focus on communications strategy. A Politico report stated that Spicer has been looking for replacements and has interviewed conservative radio host and Fox commentator Laura Ingraham for the press secretary job.
The White House told Fox Business in a statement: “We have sought input from many people as we look to expand our communications operation. As he did in the beginning, Sean Spicer is managing both the communications and press office.”
The Fox Business report cited White House officials saying that Spicer will not be doing the daily press briefings in his new role.
