Daily White House briefings have been dominated by questions about Russian Federation, and Trump's advisers feared the controversy could seep into Trump's foreign trip if he held a news conference.
Mr Dubke's last day has not yet been determined.
Dubke was the rare Trump newcomer in a White House in which personal relationships and proximity to the president are the currency.
Conway said Dubke "has expressed his desire to leave the White House and made very clear that he would see through the president's worldwide trip".
If an overhaul is in the works, White House officials aren't letting on.
But if we hadn't known Dubke was approved to helm Trump's communications department from official reports, the former Crossroads Media founder's brief tenure in the West Wing might have flown completely under the radar.
"The worse thing is when they say one thing and then Trump throws his entire press team under the bus by saying the opposite".
There is, of course, a difference between an honest misreading of a picture or video, which seems to me what the BBC reporter did, and a broad-scale and knowing attempt to create news stories without facts, which is what Trump repeatedly alleges.
And that's pretty much all reporters got out of Spicer, despite repeated questions.
The outgoing communications director was a last-minute addition to the administration following the resignation of Jason Miller, who served on Trump's campaign.
Back channels are fine, Hayden said, "but you don't do it when you're not the government and I don't think you do it using your adversary's communications system". Dubke told Politico on Tuesday he expected to go back to Black Rock Group, his communications and public affairs firm.
Asked about White House press secretary Sean Spicer's job security, a White House official said staffers have been told the press secretary "isn't going anywhere".
Dubke was not a beloved addition to the Trump team, and some in the West Wing made their feelings known on the subject of his appointment nearly immediately.
The Secret Service says it has charged a person who attempted to jump over a bike rack barricade near the White House.
"They have talked to many people, including me", Bossie said.
Aside from Spicer, who lobbied for Dubke's hiring, the communications director "never really had a senior patron or anyone who really cared about him on the staff". Former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is bring considered to play a role, and has been spotted at the White House on several occasions over the past week.
Supporters of the president say it's laudable that Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and a trusted adviser, was working even before the inauguration to foster better relations with Russian Federation.
A midnight tweet from President Donald Trump has social media trying to find a meaning in the mysterious term "covfefe". "It is just getting harder and harder to do".
