Spicer resigns as White House Press Secretary

Fans on Twitter hope they'll be seeing McCarthy's Spicer return in some capacity, though they are devastated that "SNL" won't be able to present any more Spicey press briefings.

The White House said deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders will give an on-camera briefing on Friday afternoon.

"Just look at his great television ratings!" he added.

Scaramucci was originally considered for a White House post, but his potential business conflicts held him back.

This news was announced by Anthony Scaramucci at the White House press briefing on Friday, July 21.

"Anthony Scaramucci is somebody who has been an incredible asset to President Trump all during the campaign, the transition and now he's one of the killers on TV", said Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway while on Fox News.

He says he felt it would be best for Scaramucci to be able to build his own operation "and chart a new way forward".

However, a source told the newspaper that Spicer - and others in the administration - thought hiring Scaramucci, a NY financer, was a "major mistake". Spicer tweeted that it was an "honor & privilege" to serve the president.

A different White House official described Scaramucci to NBC News as a "total professional" with the respect of President Donald Trump. According to the Associated Press two people with knowledge of the decision verified the news.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer handed in his resignation - effective in August - after Scaramucci was appointed.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer resigned on Friday, ending a brief and turbulent tenure that made him a household name, amid further upheaval within President Donald Trump's inner circle.

Sanders has worked a number of political campaigns, including her father's failed 2008 presidential bid, John Boozman's Senate bid in her home state of Arkansas in 2010, and former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty's failed 2012 presidential bid.

Mr Trump said in a statement read by Ms Sanders that he was "grateful" for Mr Spicer's "work on behalf of my administration and the American people".

Priebus and Spicer spent years working closely together at the Republican National Committee. Reportedly at the meeting, Scaramucci and Spicer also hugged.

"The White House is on track and we are doing a very good job", he said, and at once said, "We are going to do a lot of winning".
