Anthony Scaramucci

Anthony Scaramucci has been fired as White House communications director, according to multiple sources. Fox News is reporting the firing came at the request of General John Kelly, who became White House Chief of Staff in just the past week.


Scaramucci had put himself on thin ice with President Donald Trump after he gave a vulgar interview to the New York Times. His wife had also filed for divorce from him last week. Scaramucci is out of the job before he was even officially sworn in.

The New York Times broke the story and provides details.

President Trump has decided to remove Anthony Scaramucci from his position as communications director, three people close to the decision said Monday, relieving him just days after Mr. Scaramucci unloaded a crude verbal tirade against other senior members of the president’s senior staff.special offers for The New York Times’s products and services.

Mr. Scaramucci’s abrupt removal came just 10 days after the wealthy New York financier was brought on to the West Wing staff, a move that convulsed an already chaotic White House and 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.

It was not clear whether Mr. Scaramucci will remain employed at the White House in another position or will leave altogether.
