BREAKING NEWS: After just a few days on the job, President Donald Trump has remoced Anthony Scaramucci from his post as Communications Director.

CBS reports that Scaramucci was removed due to his unprofessional behavior that caused a flurry of negative coverage of Trump’s White House. General John Kelly, Trump’s new Chief of Staff, pressured Trump to let Scarmucci go because he thought he was a loose cannon. Kelly wants the chain of command to go through him, and didn’t like it when Scaramucci bragged about reporting to Trump directly.
It is also not clear who will replace him, as the Trump Administration continues to grapple with conflict and turmoil.
This is a developing story. We will update it once more information becomes available.
