Sean Spicer on Qutting: 'Too Many Cooks in the Kitchen'

Sean Spicer on Qutting: 'Too Many Cooks in the Kitchen'”

The news was later confirmed by the White House. "I think the ship is going in the right direction".

Earlier, CBS News' Chief White House Correspondent Major Garrett reported that Scaramucci's hiring was a factor in Spicer's resignation, but Scaramucci denied that there's any friction between the two of them.

Late Thursday, news broke that President Donald Trump had chosen Wall Street financier and prominent Republican donor, Anthony Scaramucci, to lead the beleaguered White House communications department.

While Mr Spicer had taken a less visible role in recent months, appearing less frequently in the White House press room, he was understood to have been comfortable with his role as a communications strategist. Spicer has been serving a dual role as press secretary and communications director since Dubke left.

"He had arguably the most hard White House communications job in American history, before now", Spradling said.

The rocky start with the press has led to mockery and criticism from the media and spurred rumors of his possible departure just weeks after entering the new administration.

And maybe some of that was bombastic TV talk, after all he has known Trump for many years, having first met him when he was 31-years-old working at Goldman Sachs.

Trump also called Scaramucci an important addition to his administration. "I will continue my service through August", Spicer said in a tweet on Friday after news broke of his resignation.

Scaramucci said his plan as communications director is to focus on his work and keep his ego low. Asked whether Trump was aware of his comment, he said the president reminds him of those words on a daily basis. Will other White House staff members follow suit? The president, he said, is never someone under siege. "I hope he goes on to make a tremendous amount of money". His briefings with reporters were contentious from the president's first days in office, when Spicer falsely said the size of the crowds at Trump's inauguration were larger than President Barack Obama's.
