Two weeks after hiring him, President Trump has decided to remove Anthony Scaramucci from his position as communications director. This also comes days after Mr. Scaramucci unloaded a crude verbal tirade against other senior members of the president’s senior staff.
The wealthy New York financier was brought on to the West Wing staff, a move that led to the departures of Sean Spicer, the former press secretary, and Reince Priebus, the president’s first chief of staff.
The decision to remove Mr. Scaramucci, who had boasted about reporting directly to the president, not the chief of staff, John F. Kelly, came at Mr. Kelly’s request, the people said. Mr. Kelly made clear to members of the White House staff at a meeting Monday morning that he is in charge,NY Daily reports.
It was not clear whether Mr. Scaramucci will remain employed at the White House in another position or will leave altogether.
