White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer will not be leaving his position despite rumors of a shakeup in President Donald Trump's administration, the Washington Examiner reported Tuesday.
A report Tuesday that White House communications director Mike Dubke was leaving his position fueled speculation that others in Trump's administration could soon follow.
Spicer's job, however, is not threatened and his press conference scheduled for Tuesday was intended to show that, a key West Wing adviser told the newspaper.
"Spicer isn't going anywhere despite the intense speculation, and this briefing is designed to drive home that point," said the advisor. "People need to get over the fact that he's staying put."
Another Trump adviser said the White House would be doing more off-camera briefings to curb "grandstanding" by reporters.
"The White House will likely do on-camera press briefings when it serves them best, and right now, that means doing them a lot less," said the adviser.
