Former Fox Executive Bill Shine Resigns from White House

Bill Shine Resigns As White House Communications Director

On Friday, the White House announced that communications adviser Bill Shine was leaving - shuttled off to Donald Trump's 2020 presidential campaign for an amorphous job that sources familiar with the move acknowledged was not part of any sort of broader, planned strategy related to the President's reelection bid.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said that Shine would be missed.

"Bill continues to support President Trump and his agenda and will serve as Senior Advisor to the 2020 re-election campaign, " she said.

"Serving President Trump and this country has been the most rewarding experience of my entire life", Shine said in a statement.

Shine was Sean Hannity's top producer for several years at Fox News Channel, rising to network leadership when founding chief executive Roger Ailes was forced out following sexual misconduct allegations.

In January, The New York Times similarly reported that Trump had not been getting the results he wanted from Shine and that they often differed on messaging. Trump says he looks forward to working with Shine on the campaign.

Trump reportedly accepted his resignation on Thursday night.

There had been rumors over Shine's role.

Shine, a former co-president of Fox News, joined the White House in June of 2018. The report claims that Fox News killed a story about Stormy Daniels and her alleged affair with Trump right before the 2016 election in order to protect the president.

Trump praised Shine in a statement issued Friday.

"Recent reporting in the New Yorker on the inappropriate relationship between President Trump, his administration and Fox News has led me to conclude that the network is not in a position to host a fair and neutral debate for our candidates", he added in a statement to The Washington Post. "Thank you to Bill and his wonderful family!" the president said.
