According to the New York Times:
“Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned on Friday morning, telling President Trump he vehemently disagreed with the appointment of the New York financier Anthony Scaramucci as communications director.
Mr. Trump offered Mr. Scaramucci the job at 10 a.m.”
This is just the latest shake up in the Trump Administration in the wake of the Russia scandal and failing health care reform.
