Donald Trump’s Communications Director Resigns

President Donald Trump?s communications director, Mike Dubke, is resigning from the White House, he confirmed to Politico Tuesday.

Dubke tendered his resignation May 18, almost three months after taking on the role, Axios first reported. Trump accepted Dubke?s offer to stay while on his first overseas trip as president this month. The White House later confirmed Dubke?s resignation to HuffPost.

The spokesman?s last day has not been determined, but could be Tuesday, The Washington Post reported. He plans to return to work at Black Rock group, his communications and public affairs firm, according to Politico.

?The reasons for my departure are personal, but it has been my great honor to serve President Trump and this administration,? Dubke, 47, wrote in an email to friends, according to Politico. ?It has also been my distinct pleasure to work side-by-side, day-by-day with the staff of the communications and press departments. This White House is filled with some of the finest and hardest working men and women in the American Government.?

Dubke didn?t give a reason for his departure but multiple media outlets reported that it was because he was largely isolated from the president?s steadfast inner circle.

His exit comes amid growing turmoil within the White House. Trump reportedly scaled back the public role of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and he?s expected to give fewer on-camera briefings after the president?s trip abroad.

Spicer served as both press secretary and communications director for the White House until Dubke came aboard in March. The veteran GOP strategist rose to national prominence in 2001 after founding Crossroads Media, a Republican media services and advertising firm.

Tiger Woods Arrested In Florida On DUI Charge

Tiger Woods was arrested in a town outside West Palm Beach, Florida, on a DUI charge early Monday morning. 

The golfer, who has been recovering from back surgery, was released just before 11 a.m. Eastern time with no bond, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff?s Office. 

Woods, a local resident, was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. 

This is not the first time Woods has faced legal trouble for his decisions behind the wheel.

In 2009, the golfer crashed his SUV into a tree in Florida, requiring his wife at the time, Elin Nordegren, to help him out of the vehicle. Although a Florida trooper suspected Woods was driving under the influence of alcohol, Woods? blood was not tested and he did not receive a DUI charge.

A divorce between the golfer and Nordegren, who have two young children, was finalized in September 2016. Woods was trailed by rumors of infidelity after the accident; he did a stint in rehab in 2010.

Although his golf career has been an illustrious one ? Woods has claimed 79 PGA Tour wins, second only to Sam Snead ? his future remains in doubt. Woods underwent his fourth back surgery since 2014 in April and has been on the mend, although he expressed a desire to golf professionally again in a post on his website.

Woods? management did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
