Trump fires Scaramucci from White House communications director role

President Donald Trump has decided to fire Anthony Scaramucci from his new role as White House communications director.

Multiple outlets reported the president's abrupt decision to kick the wealthy and blunt-talking financier out of the role only 10 days after he had taken the job.

According to the New York Times, the request to remove Scaramucci from the role came at the behest of Trump's new chief of staff John Kelly, his former Homeland Security chief who had formally been sworn into his new role of chief of staff earlier on Monday.

Scaramucci's short time in office was marked by multiple public scuffles with members of the Trump administration, including former Spokesman Sean Spicer and former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, both of whom resigned their roles shortly after Scaramucci joined the Trump White House.

Scaramucci had been a vocal supporter of the president's, and vowed to crack down on leaks since joining the Trump administration, which the president has repeatedly complained about via Twitter.

He also made waves with an expletive-laden interview he gave late last week, in which he criticized a slew of White House insiders including Priebus and top advisor Steven Bannon, about whom he made vulgar comments.

The move to oust Scaramucci appears to be Kelly's first major change since taking on important chief of staff job on Monday. The former Marine general reportedly has the backing of both Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.
