Scaramucci removed as communications director
    2017-August-2  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

ANTHONY SCARAMUCCI was removed as U.S. President Donald Trump’s communications director Monday, ending a tumultuous eleven days in the role.

The president made the decision following a request from John Kelly, the new White House chief of staff, who insiders said wanted to make clear he was in charge.

“A great day at the White House!” Trump tweeted.

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.”

Kelly, the widely-respected former retired U.S. Marine Corps general and former commander of United States Southern Command, was sworn in as chief of staff Monday.

The speed with which he apparently brought about the removal of Scaramucci suggested he was keen to assert order quickly.

“Kelly is already changing the culture here,” one White House aide reportedly said, adding there was “no way” he could work with Scaramucci.

“There’s a new sheriff in town,” said Barry Bennett, a former Trump campaign adviser.

Kelly summoned Scaramucci to his office Monday morning and fired him on the spot, an official said. It was one of Kelly’s first acts as chief of staff.

Scaramucci was escorted from the White House grounds, becoming yet another high-ranking official to leave an administration that is barely beyond the six-month mark. He was the third person to hold the communications director title in that time.

The departure of Scaramucci followed one of the rockiest weeks of Trump’s presidency in which a major Republican effort to overhaul the U.S. healthcare system failed in Congress.
