Scaramucci out as White House communications director

After only 10 days on the job, Anthony Scaramucci is out as White House communications director.

"Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement 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."


A White House official said Kelly wanted Scaramucci removed from his new role as the communications director because he did not think he was disciplined and had burned his credibility.

Sanders told reporters Monday that all White House staff will report to Kelly.

"Gen. Kelly has the full authority to operate within the White House, and all staff will report to him," she said. When pressed further whether staffers including Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump and Steve Bannon will all report to Kelly, Sanders said: "That includes everybody at the White House."
