Notable staffing changes in the Trump administration

Postado Agosto 06, 2017

President Trump's decision to replace ineffectual White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus with Homeland Security chief John Kelly - a former Army general with a history of smart, effective leadership - makes complete sense.

Anthony Scaramucci is set on living his best life.

"Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement Monday afternoon. Sanders confirmed Kelly will have the authority and those wishing to meet with the president must go through him. "There's a new sheriff in town", said Mr Barry Bennett, a former Trump campaign adviser.

Mr Spicer had "vehemently disagreed" with the appointment of Mr Scaramucci, telling the President it was "a major mistake", the New York Times reported.

In that interview, Brown described Scaramucci as "kind of an outsider", and a man of great organizational skill who understands business and people. "He thought he could fix it".

"I want chief of staff Kelly to have an unbelievable opportunity inside the White House", Scaramucci added to TMZ. Says Durbin: "Qualities this White House hasn't displayed a lot of in the last few weeks". He is the third communications director since Trump took office.

Sen. Dick Durbin of IL tells CNN he voted for Kelly for Homeland Security secretary, wanted to work with him in that role, and now in his new position.

USA comedian Stephen Colbert has penned a farewell to axed White House communications boss Anthony Scaramucci, in a continuation of his Bohemian Rhapsody spoof that welcomed the Wall Street financier to the role just days earlier.

Spicer, who also took on some of the duties of communications director during his time in the administration, resigned on July 21. When Scaramucci learned about this claim, he confronted Lizza, demanding his source. He managed to present himself as Kushner, former chief of staff Reince Priebus and ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman Jr. He also spoke out against Steve Bannon, saying Bannon was only serving as chief strategist for selfish purposes, and not for what's best for the nation.

Do you think anyone will be able to stick with a position in the Trump administration for more than six months?
