SCARAMUCCI OUT AS WH COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR, DAYS AFTER WIFE DIVORCED HIM FOR TAKING WH JOB AND GIVING BIRTH
( Daily Mail ) President Donald Trump has decided to sack Anthony Scaramucci as his communications director, in the latest dramatic staff shake-up to rock the White House.
‘Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director,’ the White House said in a brief statement. ‘Mr. Scaramucci felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team. We wish him all the best.’
The statement came just minutes after the New York Times first reported the news on Monday.
The paper cited three sources familiar with the president’s thinking, although there was no official announcement Monday afternoon.
Scaramucci started the job just a week ago, and immediately shook the White House with controversial statements, including vulgar attacks on senior White House staffers.
