"It's been an honor and a privilege to serve President Donald Trump and this fantastic country", Spicer stated on Twitter, confirming earlier reports.

Trump threatened in May to shut down daily press briefings and told Fox News Channel at the time that Spicer was "doing a good job, but he gets beat up". But during the 2016 presidential election he was a major Republican donor, first to Scott Walker and Jeb Bush in the primary and later to Trump in the general election, according to Axios.

Spicer has always been a fixture of the Washington political establishment, previously serving as the spokesman for the Republican National Committee.

"This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, both in person and around the globe", said Spicer on January 23, 2017.

Forty-five-year-old Mr Spicer, a veteran Washington staffer, was parodied memorably by actress Melissa McCarthy on the Saturday Night Live TV comedy show for his combative encounters with the White House press corps.

"If you want to eat an elephant, you have to eat it one bite at a time", he said.
