Shakeup Puts Different Face on White House Communications

"I am grateful for Sean's work on behalf of my Administration and the American people".

Speaking to Fox News, Mr Spicer said the president did not want him to go and had been "very gracious throughout this process".

News outlets had reported that Mr Spicer had left his post in protest at the appointment, and had told the President it was a "major mistake".

White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be conducting an on-camera briefing on Friday afternoon, following White House press secretary Sean Spicer's resignation.

His appointment preceded with the resignation of Spicer, whose tenure as the press secretary was overshadowed by the controversies he often landed himself into.

The White House insider added, "We're going to see out-and-out political warfare, and not over ..."

"Probably not - remember Spicer wasn't fired, Spicer quit", Gingrich said.

To many, Mr Spicer had an impossible job, batting off questions from journalists in the White House briefing room as his boss watched from the West Wing.

"You're an inherited money dude from Queens County", Scaramucci said.

"I think there are a couple parts of it that were amusing", Spicer told Fox News' Sean Hannity on Friday.

"Anthony is a person I have great respect for".

The Simpsons have ridiculed Donald Trump's first 100 days, showing Sean Spicer taking his own life and Ivanka Trump being appointed to the Supreme Court.

Scaramucci addressed the issue during his first briefing on Friday.

This resignation comes at the end of another busy week for the leader republican, openly annoyed by the progress of the investigation of special prosecutor Robert Mueller on a possible collusion between the Russian federation and its campaign past year. And he will be an important addition to this administration. Especially since it he and the president disagree on so numerous policies Scaramucci will try to sell to the public.
