US communications director Scaramucci fired after 10 days in office
White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci has been fired after less than 10 days in the post, the BBC reported.
The former Wall Street financier had drawn criticism after calling a reporter to give a profanity-laced tirade against his colleagues, according to the BBC.
Mr Trump’s chief of staff Reince Priebus and spokesman Sean Spicer both left their post over his appointment. The decision was made by Mr Trump’s new chief of staff, John Kelly, who was sworn in on Monday, the BBC added.
A three-sentence statement from the White House reads: “Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director, the BBc added.
“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.”
Earlier in the day, Mr Trump tweeted about job and wage figures, and insisted there is “No WH chaos”, referring to reports about fighting among White House staff, the BBC added.
