Scaramucci says tweet was not a threat to Priebus

Scaramucci says tweet was not a threat to Priebus”

He had a freaky 24 hours even before The New Yorker published its account of the interview on Thursday afternoon.

Christina Reynolds, former director of media affairs for Barack Obama's White House and now senior vice-president at the Global Strategy Group, said administrations are "most effective when the staff is driving the president's message, not nursing petty grudges and attacking each other". Sources have told CNN that both Priebus and chief strategist Steve Bannon fiercely opposed Scaramucci's hiring as communications director.

Scaramucci later tweeted, in part: "I sometimes use colorful language". And I believe he has the president's confidence.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says she has nothing to add to Scaramucci's tweet.

"I think Reince is doing a great job as chief of staff", Ryan said.

Press secretary Sean Spicer, a close ally of Priebus, resigned last week.

He also threatened to fire White House staffers who leaked about a dinner he had with the president. "Tweet was a public notice to all leakers that all Sr Admin officials are helping to end illegal leaks", he wrote.

But he says he wants to stop what he calls "nefarious, unnecessary, backstabbing, palace intrigue-like leaks". That tweet has since been deleted.

"If Reince wants to explain he's not a leaker, let him do that", Scaramucci said in an interview on CNN on Thursday morning.

Feuding within Donald Trump's inner circle appeared to burst out on Twitter late Wednesday, when one White House aide tagged another in a tweet calling on the FBI to investigate the leak of his financial information.

His arrival marked the first in a series of falling dominoes that seemed to be leading toward Priebus, the chief of staff who as of Wednesday insisted he isn't going anywhere.

"In light of the leak of my financial disclosure info which is a felony".

Scaramucci then tweeted that someone had illegally leaked financial information about him, conspicuously mentioning Priebus' Twitter handle.

"Why is it called a financial disclosure form?" he asked. Founded in 1846, AP has covered all the major news events of the past 165 years, providing high-quality, informed reporting of everything from wars and elections to championship games and royal weddings.
