Trump has been searching for a replacement for Hope Hicks, who resigned as White House communications director in February - shortly after she said to lawmakers that she occasionally told "white lies" on the president's behalf.

Shine resigned from Fox News network a year ago amid controversy surrounding the late Roger Ailes.

The White House said Thursday that Shine "brings over two decades of television programming, communications, and management experience to the role".

Shine resigned from his co-president role previous year after being accused of covering up sexual harassment allegations involving staffers at the network going back decades, CNN reported.

Donald Trump announces resignation of EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt
The cooler tone towards Mr Pruitt recalls the changing attitude to other cabinet members who have been dismissed by the president. Pruitt's unethical, and at times, possibly illegal behavior to go unchecked", the DE senator said in a lengthy statement .

Carlson, a former Fox News host, filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes in 2016. Shine was never personally accused of harassment, but multiple women accused him of defending the men who were. Shine was ousted in May 2017.

Hicks was the third communications director of the Trump White House, following Mike Dubke, who held the post for about three months, and Anthony Scaramucci, who was sacked after just 10 days in the job following obscene comments he made in an interview with The New Yorker magazine.

The Be Fierce: Stop Harassment and Take Your Power Back author's lawsuit later lead to Ailes' resignation, which rocked the Fox News Network's foundation and won Carlson a $20 million settlement. Life... works in mysterious ways.

On your marks, get set. how long till the liberal media and snowflakes start taking shots at the great Bill Shine?
