Trump sweeps GOP pros out of the White House

Trump sweeps GOP pros out of the White House

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders even defended Scaramucci on Fox News on Thursday evening, saying, "This is a guy who sometimes uses colorful, and in many circles probably not appropriate language".

Trump hired Anthony Scaramucci over Priebus's objections and Scaramucci reports directly to the president.

"And for that, I want to congratulate John Kelly, who has done an incredible job of Secretary of Homeland Security", Trump continued.

Spicer, who worked with Priebus for years at the Republican National Committee before joining the Trump administration, had been giving fewer press briefings in recent weeks but had been serving as the highest-ranking individual in the communications department.

Gen. Kelly was believed to be among four candidates under consideration for the post, alongside deputy national security adviser Dina Powell, chief economic advisor Gary Cohn and Trump's former campaign adviser David Urban.

The move likely signals a greater focus on law and order issues and will put further strain on relations between Trump and the Republican establishment. He told reporters that Priebus was "a good man", and thanked him for his service.

"I congratulate Secretary Kelly on his appointment, and look forward to working with him to advance our agenda", he said.

Priebus also affirmed his commitment to Trump's presidency, noting that he was "always going to be a Trump fan".

Scaramucci, a Wall Street financier, said Thursday in a television interview that he has a "very good idea who the senior leakers are", adding that he had talked to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and to his "buddies" in the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the matter.

"I said, that's what I'm looking for", Trump said.

Priebus and Scaramucci flew together on Air Force One to the NY event, but the White House press pool reported they didn't see the communications director on the plane for the return trip.

During much of the phone call he focused on his conviction that Mr Priebus had "c***-blocked" and orchestrated leaks against him.

It's official: Reince Priebus, Donald Trump's beleaguered chief of staff, is out. "He is a Great American".

"I don't know if this is repairable or not - that will be up to the president", Scaramucci said on air. "I can tell you two fish that don't stink, and that's me and the president". Scaramucci had suggested in his tweet that Priebus had engineered the release of Scaramucci's financial disclosure form.

"John Kelly is one of our great stars", Trump declared. "I don't know who it's gonna be, Reince, but I'm gonna get to the bottom of the leakage in the White House, you hear me, Reince?"

Kelly enjoyed bipartisan support, and was credited in his tenure as secretary of Homeland Security for reducing illegal border crossings and enforcing travel bans targeting citizens of six Muslim countries.

Priebus thought for a second and said, "Dishonest".

A new name was added to the Trump Administration Friday following a week of drama surrounding the position of chief of staff, leading to the ousting of Reince Priebus.
