While he won’t be on the stand, he will still be in the White House!
White House Press Secretary and acting communications director for President Donald Trump, Sean Spicer, will be moving to a new position in the West Wing.
Reports came in from White House officials today that stated, Spicer and White House Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus, have been interviewing potential candidates to take the position.
News about Spicer broke back on the inauguration day. Comments about the crowd size were brought into the spotlight, where Spicer criticized reports even being made about a number of people.
For the past few months of Spicer’s role as the official spokesperson for the White House, he has been the center of discussion.
Issues regarding Spicer began after he was seen going back and forth with reporters. He also made statements that were later contradicted by President Trump
“We have sought input from many people as we look to expand our communications operation,” White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. “As he did in the beginning, Sean Spicer is managing both the communications and press office.”
The lack of on-camera press conferences should come as no surprise, as President Trump threatened a few months ago to completely cap them.
Spicer has no comment on his position. However, we do know that he will still remain in close ties as the communications director.
As for who is expected to fill his spot, reports are coming in that Laura Ingraham is rumored to fill the position. She is the Fox News personality and a potential candidate to challenge Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., and David Martosko, the editor of the Daily Mail are names that have been tossed around.
As word comes in about who is to fill the position and what position Spicer will take over, we will keep you all updated.
