Trump removes Anthony Scaramucci from communications director role

President Donald Trump has removed Anthony Scaramucci from the White House communications director post only 10 days after he was appointed, multiple outlets reported Monday.

The New York Times first reported the move.

John Kelly, the president’s new chief of staff, requested his removal, according to the Times. The newspaper said that Scaramucci, who was an investment manager before taking the White House job, “boasted about reporting directly to the president not the chief of staff.”

It comes just days after Scaramucci unloaded on Kelly’s predecessor, Reince Priebus, and White House advisor Steve Bannon in an expletive-laden rant to a New Yorker reporter.

A previous White House communications director, Mike Dubke, resigned in late May.

Scaramucci was not officially set to start as communications director until August 15, according to a White House announcement of his appointment.
