President Trump Removes Anthony Scaramucci As White House Communications Director…After Just 10 Days

White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci has been removed from his job after just 10 days in a move that has only increased the sense of chaos at the heart of the President Donald Trump administration.The shock development follows a turbulent series of media appearances over the last week from the combative former Wall Street financier, capped by a foul-mouthed tirade to a New Yorker journalist last Thursday. News of his rapid political demise came less than six hours after the appointment of former US marine Gen John Kelly as Donald Trump’s new chief of staff.“Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House communications director,” said press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in a statement on Monday afternoon. “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 decision to remove Scaramucci, nicknamed “the Mooch”, came at Kelly’s request, the New York Times reported. It is not clear whether Scaramucci will remain employed at the White House in another position or leave altogether, the paper added.Photo Credit: Getty
