President Donald Trump is reportedly unhappy with Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s performance during the first two weeks of the administration, and so the White House is ramping up its search to find a communications director to lighten Spicer’s load, reports CNN.
Currently, Spicer is serving as both press secretary and communications director, two roles that are traditionally filled by two different people.
Trump is reportedly displeased with Spicer’s performance as the arguably second-most visible person in the White House, and he is particularly frustrated with White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, who is a longtime ally of Spicer, for the selection.
“Priebus vouched for Spicer and against Trump’s instincts,” a source close to the hiring process explained, saying that the president “regrets it every day and blames Priebus.”
However, a different White House source denied the growing rumors that Trump is unsatisfied with Spicer and said that “nothing could be further from the truth.”
