BREAKING Trump Names Spicer's Replacements
Early Friday morning, White House Communications Director and White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer resigned.

By 2:30 PM, a man named Anthony Scaramucci (pictured above), a Trump fundraiser and current White House Senior Advisor took to Spicer's old podium in the White House Press Briefing Room.

Minutes earlier Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced Scaramucci would take over Spicer's role as Communications Director and that she will be elevated from Deputy Press Secretary to take over Spicer's role as Press Secretary.

Background on Scaramucci per Wikipedia:

Anthony Scaramucci (born January 6, 1964) is an American entrepreneur, financier, political figure, and author.[1] In June 2017, he became a senior vice president and chief strategy officer at the U.S. Export-Import Bank,[2] and on July 21, 2017, President Donald Trump appointed him the White House Communications Director.[3]

On January 12, 2017, President Donald Trump announced his intent to appoint Scaramucci Director of the White House Office of Public Liaison and Intergovernmental Affairs.[4] Scaramucci's swearing-in was reportedly delayed by an extended review of his finances by the Office of Government Ethics,[5][6] although the ethics office denied that clearance was necessary before making White House appointments.[7] Ultimately, George Sifakis was appointed instead.[8]

Following the 2016 election, Scaramucci served on the Presidential Transition Team Executive Committee.[9] In 2005, Scaramucci founded global investment firm SkyBridge Capital,[10] serving as co-managing partner before selling the company in early 2017[11] to take a role in the Trump administration.

Scaramucci also previously served as host of a financial television show Wall Street Week[12] and contributor to the Fox News Channel.[13]

Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the daughter of former Arkansas Governor and two-time presidential candidate Mike Huckabee. Before her role as White House Deputy Press Secretary, Sarah was a serious political operative serving roles in various campaigns including, President George W. Bush's 2004 re-election campaign, both of her father's campaigns, former MN Gov. Tim Pawlenty's 2012 Presidential campaign, and President Trump's successful campaign.
