Sean Spicer May Get To Choose His Own Replacement If He Quits

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer remained mum on his own fate in the administration Tuesday, refusing to deny that he would not be sticking around as President Trump's chief spokesman. [We've] been seeking input from individuals as far as ideas they may have.
