The White House will address the issue of the existence of any possible recordings between President Donald Trump and former FBI Director James Comey "probably" this week, press secretary Sean Spicer said Monday. Spicer has become a household name for his combative press briefings, but they have become less frequent recently.

He will likely no longer handle day-to-day press duties, including the daily media briefings.

In the Fox News report, Spicer is said to be taking on an elevated role in the administration where he would oversee communications for the entire administration.

"I just don't know what we're doing", he said.
