At least two people have reportedly turned down the chance to become Donald Trump’s White House communications director - a position that has been vacant since he was sworn in as President last month.
The White House's Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus, has been tasked with filling the vacancy.
But his approaches to communications specialists with Mr Trump's Republican Party have been met with disinterest, according to the Politico website.
“There is a list of candidates, but I can see why people aren't interested," a source told the site. "It's a tough job.”
Jason Miller, Mr Trump’s communications chief during the presidential campaign had been expected to take the role. But he turned down the job.
The President has reportedly been unimpressed with Mr Spicer’s performance and blames Mr Priebus for pushing him for the job.
Steve Schmidt, a campaign strategist for the Republican Party, told Politico the “complete and total chaos emanating from the White House” made it clear there was “no strategic planning”.
