Bill Shine Resigns as White House Communications Director

White House communications director  Bill Shine has resigned from his position, press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed Friday.  The former Fox News executive will now serve as senior adviser to President Donald Trump's 2020 re-election campaign.  He was tapped for  the White House role  in July 2018 after leaving the television network amid scrutiny over his handling of sexual harassment allegations.  Shine's  the fifth communications director  to step down during President Trump's time in office.

Sean Spicer, Mike Dubke, Anthony Scaramucci and Hope Hicks also held the position.  A reason for Shine's resignation wasn't given, but  some media outlets  speculate that the president might not have been fully satisfied with the media coverage he received under Shine's direction.  In a statement, President Trump said Shine did "an outstanding job" working for the administration.
