Amid rumours of a shake-up in the White House, Mike Dubke, President Donald Trump's communications director, has resigned.

Dubke, 47, was in his post for just three months.

He resigned on 18 May, but offered to stay on in his role until the end of the president's first foreign trip, which concluded last week.

His final day has yet to be confirmed, but he is expected to remain in the role in the short-term.

Prior to working in the White House, Dubke helped with the foundation of Crossroads Media, a Republican media services firm.

Rumours have been swirling around the White House for a number of weeks as a wave of scandals embroiled the Trump administration.

The situation began to snowball after the firing of FBI Director James Comey and the news that Trump revealed top-secret information to a Russian delegation at the White House regarding operations involving Isis.

As part of the shake-up, White House press secretary Sean Spicer will reportedly hold on to his position, but there will be fewer media briefings.

In Trump's first foreign trip, he visited Saudi Arabia, Israel, Belgium and Italy as part of trade talks, a Nato summit and a meeting of G7 leaders.
