White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer resigns
The Associated Press confirms that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has resigned after the hiring of new communications aide.

The people with knowledge of the decision insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the personnel matter publicly.
