He came in like a house of fire but his turbulent reign has come to a quick end, sources say.
Hours after President Donald Trump swore in his new White House Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly, the president removed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci on Monday, the New York Times reported.
The removal of Scaramucci came at the request of the newly minted Chief of Staff Gen. Kelly, according to the Times.
Mr. Scaramucci’s abrupt removal came just 10 days after the wealthy New York financier was brought on to the West Wing staff, a move that convulsed an already chaotic White House and led to the departures of Sean Spicer, the former press secretary, and Reince Priebus, the president’s first chief of staff.
Sources told the Times that Gen. Kelly made it known in a meeting on Monday that he is in charge now.
It is unknown if Scaramucci is out of the White House altogether or if he will move to another position in the White House.
