    Mike Dubke, the director of communications in Donald Trump's White House, is set to leave after three months on the job, NBC News confirmed. 

    A senior official told NBC News that the Republican media strategist submitted a letter of resignation. 

    Dubke's departure was first reported by Axios, which said he submitted the resignation May 18 and offered to stay on through Trump's first trip overseas. His official last day is unclear. 

    The move comes as Trump has been mulling role changes for his communications team, sources told NBC News. Asked Tuesday if Dubke's departure signals a broader shake-up of his team, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said, "I think the president is very pleased with his team."
