Donald Trump To Name Financier/Sean Hannity Pal Anthony Scaramucci New Communications Director: Report
President Trump is expected to announce Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci as his White House communications director, web site Axios reports.
The role has been vacant since Mike Dubke resigned in May after just a few months on the job. Sean Spicer has been handling those duties since Dubke left. It’s unclear what would be Spicer’s role going forward.
The plan came as a surprise to Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, who found out after the plans had already been made, Axios reported. Bye bye, Priebus.
Scaramucci is a big Republican donor; he supported Trump during the general election campaign after supporting Scott Walker and Jeb Bush earlier in the White House race. Scaramucci is a longtime friend of Fox News Channel star Sean Hannity, Axios reported.
Scaramucci, now working at the Export-Import Bank, is expected to leave that post to take the communications job.
