Anthony Scaramucci sacked as Trump media chief

White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci has been fired after fewer than 10 days in the post.

The former Wall Street financier had drawn criticism after calling a reporter to give a profanity-laced tirade against his colleagues.

Mr Trump's chief of staff Reince Priebus and spokesman Sean Spicer both left their posts with his appointment.

The decision was made by Mr Trump's new chief of staff, Gen John Kelly, who was sworn in on Monday.

The president was also unhappy with Mr Scaramucci's performance, the White House confirmed.

Mr Trump's spokeswoman, Sarah Sanders, said the president thought Mr Scaramucci's comments to the reporter "were inappropriate for a person in that position".

He has not been moved to another White House role, she added.

Mr Trump had tweeted in the morning about job and wage figures, and insisted there is "No WH chaos", referring to reports about fighting among White House staff.

Mr Scaramucci had boasted of reporting directly to the president, rather than to his chief of staff.

Gen Kelly, who had formerly served as secretary of homeland security, was sworn in on Monday morning at the White House.


The Scaramucci missile did its job

By Anthony Zurcher, BBC News, Washington

Staff in this White House have the job life expectancy of mayflies. Only 10 days ago, Mr Scaramucci burst on to the scene as the fast-talking New Yorker whose fanatical devotion to the president was matched only by his distaste for the established order.

Although his job tenure was short, he managed to do a lot of order-disrupting. Press Secretary Sean Spicer resigned to give Mr Scaramucci a "clean slate". Then, like a heat-seeking missile powered by foul language, Mr Scaramucci went after Reince Priebus, who was unceremoniously cashiered on Friday.

Now it is Mr Scaramucci's turn to wipe down the slate.

If Mr Scaramucci's exit was indeed orchestrated by John Kelly, it could be an indication that the former general is quickly asserting control over what has been a rancorous White House.

Perhaps it is the first sign of order being established, even if the brevity of Mr Scaramucci's tenure - he wasn't officially set to begin until 15 August - will be a short-term embarrassment for the president.

Then again, it could be that the pace of change is quickening as the Trump administration approaches the centre of the vortex. Only time will tell.

End of Twitter post by @Scaramucci

The resignation of Reince Priebus came on Friday after Mr Scaramucci posted and then deleted a tweet which many interpreted as an accusation and a threat against Mr Priebus.

Mr Scaramucci also called a reporter to attack Mr Priebus as a "paranoid schizophrenic" and accuse him of leaking information to the media.

During the on-the-record phone call, he also made vulgar statements about chief strategist Steve Bannon.

He also pledged to fire every member of the communications team, as part of his crusade against "leakers".

Personally, I couldn't agree with you more, Chuck.  Whoever does the cleaning in the Whitehouse, it appears, is very good at getting rid of trash.  

Carbon 20 will probably be amused to know: I was in the cafe of our local supermarket yesterday, before Scaramucci's sacking was announced, and I mentioned to a friend that America, at present, holds the western world together.  People at the tables nearby looked at me and began laughing and calling out: "Sack him! Sack him!".  On the understanding that when I have dug a hole for myself I know it is time to stop digginng, I have become very careful about my public support for America.  I hope this is only going to go on to be a small blip in America's world image and not a sign of permanent decline as it has many historical similarities with the fall of Rome and other great empires.

Wait a moment!  Oh, it's all right.  It is only my daughter I can hear fiddling.  For a moment I thought it was Nero.

Soap opera?

I would have said Three Ring Circus, except it is supposed to be the clowns that do pratfallls into the piles of elephant accidents, not the ringmaster.

What you guys do not understand is that President Trump is not a political person and putting Priebus in was a "bow" to the Establishment Republicans just as Obama did with is appointments. Priebus brought along all his friends from the RNC and some of them hate Trump so the leaks.

He made a great call to put Kelly in there and dump the Establishment Repubs. None of you really knows how this all works in the background and I can tell you the Dems are no different.   They do the same thing of putting Establishment Dems in when there is a Dem President.

Trump's problem was and is he wants to drain the swamp and all the Establishment people Repub and Dem do not want it drained so President Trump is fighting both parties! Give the guy a break it is really bad in D.C!

Don't worry, America will survive this guy Trump and his family.  We continue to lead the world, militarily and economically, and everyone knows it. 

Our friends in Europe, Australia and other places know this.
