Mike Dubke has resigned as White House communications director in the first of what could be a series of changes to President Donald Trump's senior staff amid the growing Russian Federation scandal.

The maiden foreign visit of US President Donald Trump to the Middle East and Europe was an incredibly "historic" trip during which he interacted with a record 100 leaders, the White House has said.
