Trump is reportedly considering downsizing Sean Spicer's public role


President Trump is considering whether or not to scale back White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer's public role, Politico reported. The potential move is a part of a set of considerations Trump is reportedly thinking about making to his communications setup.

The press secretary, whose briefings have become something of a spectacle in recent months, has drawn the president's ire and is no longer going to be doing a daily, on-camera briefing, according to Politico's sources. 

This could be the best, or worst, thing that's happened to Spicer. 

Trump has told officials he doesn't want Spicer delivering his message anymore, according to Politico. 

As Trump has been hit with negative media reports, the president has relied heavily on his communications team to explain the controversies surrounding his administration. Sarah Huckabee Sanders is expected to appear more as Spicer appears less.
