Sarah Sanders just issued a shock resignation announcement, revealing that Bill Shine is stepping down from his role as White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications.
The reason behind Shine’s decision to leave the White House has yet to be revealed, but some speculate it has something to do with his close relationship with Fox News.
Before joining the Trump administration, Shine was an executive at Fox News. According to Brietbart, Trump hired Shine as a consultant to “help improve communications and television production at the White House.”
President Trump commented that he will be missed in the White House, but will be “totally involved” in the 2020 presidential campaign as a senior adviser.
Bill Shine has a long history with President Trump, serving as a senior adviser in the 2016 campaign as well. Shine leaves the White Hosue on good terms, revealing that he is “looking forward to working on President Trump’s reelection campaign and spending more time with my family.”
Sarah Sanders declared in the official announcement that “it is a big loss for the White House, but a huge gain for the President’s reelection campaign.”
