WH Comms Director Bill Shine Abruptly Resigns

CNBC reports:

White House communications director Bill Shine will resign from his administration post and advise President Donald Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign, the White House announced Friday.

The former Fox News executive joined Trump’s communications staff last year. He left the network in 2017 amid criticism of how he handled sexual harassment scandals.

In a statement Friday, Shine said he is “looking forward to working on President Trump’s re-election campaign and spending more time with [his] family.” It is unclear how large of a role he will have on the president’s 2020 campaign as what the White House called a “senior advisor.”
