President Donald Trump has sacked White House Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci after just 10 days on the job.
The sudden and unexpected departure is just the latest in a series of stunning shakeups in Trump’s administration, with new Chief of Staff John Kelly being sworn in on Monday, replacing Reince Priebus, who was removed last week.
Scaramucci shocked political watchers last week when he unleashed a profane tirade against Priebus in an interview with The New Yorker.
In a statement, the White House announced, “Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director” and cited the desire 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 finished.
Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer resigned two weeks ago after which Scaramucci was brought in.
