Trump fires White House communications director Scaramucci

07 August 2017

The White House announced that John Kelly, 67, a retired marine general, has taken over as the new White House chief of staff, replacing Reince Priebus who was sacked after continued feud among the senior White House staffers came out in the open.

Scaramucci was supposedly forced out after a series of less than flattering media appearances with Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee releasing a statement saying: 'Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House communications director.

That response came after host Chris Cuomo asked Gregory what he thought about the White House's "problem" with staff, and what Kelly's solution to fire Scaramucci "may yield".

"But this rapid-fire turnover of the past few weeks is not something we've seen in past administrations", said Goidel.

Anthony Scaramucci, who was removed as the White House communications director after 10 days, has broken his silence.

As previously reported, both press secretary Sean Spicer and chief of staff Reince Priebus resigned after Scaramucci joined the staff.

"There's a new sheriff in town", said Barry Bennett, a former Trump campaign adviser.

Christie said the previous "structure" within the White House "was the problem".

Scaramucci became the seventh major administration official to leave in President Trump's first six months. But what matters isn't simply that Scaramucci, reportedly at the urging of Kelly, was dismissed on Monday.

Give Kelly, the former Homeland Security director, credit for recognizing the risk in having another loose cannon in the White House.

Mr. Trump was flying back to Joint Base Andrews from a speech in Suffolk County, New York when he sent the tweets.

What Mr. Kelly brings to the White House is what it needs most - discipline and focus.
