The White House is reportedly considering other changes, like fewer on-camera briefings.
Mike Dubke, the White House Communications Director, resigned earlier this week.
Before assuming the role of White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer was communications director for the Republican National Committee.
It's hard to write about Jared Kushner without going straight to the Icarus cliche - hubris, flying too close to the sun, falling into the sea.
But Spicer isn't the only White House staffer lavishing praise on Trump.
"Jared Kushner can not be trusted", said Rep. Don Beyer of Virginia, who also signed the letter.
And having spent years doing this, I can tell you exactly where this story came from - the White House.
American model Chrissy Teigen said: "I just no longer find trump trending topics or memes amusing".
However, Trump has privately and publicly pinned much of the blame for his administration's woes on the communications effort.
"So I guess no one has ever pocket dialed or pocket tweeted before".
Presidents generally place calls on one of several secure phone lines, including those in the White House Situation Room, the Oval Office or the presidential limousine.
Spicer said he thinks the president "is very pleased with his team", but he added, "Ultimately the best messenger is the president himself". "He's always proven that".

Trump, who returned to Washington on Saturday after a nine-day trip to the Middle East and Europe, has been expected to shake up staff to tackle the firestorm over investigations into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and communication between Russia and Trump's campaign and transition team.
"The reasons for my departure are personal, but it has been my great honor to serve President Trump and this administration", Dubke said in a message to friends on Tuesday. The President is a known viewer of Fox & Friends and it wound't be insane to assume the Commander-in-Chief was watching.
"They have talked to many people, including me", Bossie said. That would be a little, I think that's - it's an ongoing conversation, and I think that that's a fair way to put it. Exactly 40% said Conway damages the President's administration when she speaks compared to 28% who said that she helps.
