USA POLITICS: Trump Removes Scaramucci as Communications Director

US President Donald Trump has sacked his communications director Anthony Scaramucci, just 10 days into his role, according to two people with knowledge of the decision.

Scaramucci’s brief tenure in the role had been marked by turmoil as he feuded publicly with former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus. Scaramucci’s arrival at the White House prompted former press secretary Sean Spicer to resign in protest.

The New York Times said Scaramucci’s removal came at the request of Trump’s new chief of staff John F Kelly.

“Mr Kelly made clear to members of the White House staff at a meeting Monday morning that he is in charge,” the Times reported.

In a statement, the White House said: “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.”

CNN reports that Mr Scaramucci was “essentially escorted off the White House property”.

Jared Kushner, Mr Trump’s son-in-law, and Ivanka Trump, his daughter, supported the decision to remove Mr Scaramucci, reports said.

They had also supported his appointment only 11 days previously, and Ms Trump was with her father when Mr Scaramucci was interviewed for the job.

Mr Trump was said to have consulted allies outside the White House over the weekend before making the decision.

Mr Kelly was said to have decided to ask for the resignation of Mr Scaramucci several days ago because he did not represent the way he wanted the White House to function.
