Sean Spicer Confirms WH 'Meeting with Potential People' for Press Vacancies

Sean Spicer

Bloomberg reported that, according to sources familiar with the situation, if Spicer leaves, he will likely take a more senior role in the communications office that is "behind-the-scenes" and focused on broader communications strategy and messaging. His post criticized a detail from the article - that Bannon, via text message to a reporter, explained that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer's appearance was the reason why.

'We have sought input from many people as we look to expand our communications operation.

"There are days where we decide that the president's voice should be the one who speaks for the administration", Spicer told journalists. "I expect it this week, and so when he's ready to make that announcement we'll let you know", White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said.

During Tuesday's briefing - which the White House scheduled that morning after more criticism from the press - Mr Spicer defended the administration's new communications strategy.

Spicer has already seen his public role diminish in recent weeks.

The superstar usually hosts the tournament , which is played in Washington D.C., with benefits going towards his foundation. "I don't know whether Tiger will play much golf anymore", Nicklaus said , according to the paper.

A reporter asked Spicer about this characterization, but did not get a response.

Spicer said he's made it clear since he was hired that he wanted to do things "better" than previous administrations by giving access to other news outlets that "haven't had it". Trump has said in the past that he would have preferred a woman in the role so he might use this as an opportunity to make that happen.

But it is also true that Trump has suggested the briefing is not a good fit for his White House since his spokesman can't be expected to keep up with his thinking.

Ms Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, retweeted British author Brian Klaas, who called Mr Bannon's excuse "pathetic and undemocratic".

Acosta then linked Monday's off-camera press briefing to Trump's reluctance to hold press conferences - he's held a handful of brief joint press conferences with foreign leaders but only one on his own since becoming president in January.
