While Trump has publicly defended Spicer throughout his term, the press secretary face time with the press was gradually reduced over the past few months.
Trump released the following statement on Friday: “I am grateful for Sean’s work on behalf of my administration and the American people. I wish him continued success as he moves on to pursue new opportunities. Just look at his great television ratings. Sean will continue to serve the administration through August.”
Deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will fill the role going forward.
Do you think Spicer was right to resign? What do you think of president Trump?
