Spicer confirmed his departure on Twitter over an hour after the news broke, writing "It's been an honor & a privilege to serve @POTUS @realDonaldTrump & this amazing country. I will continue my service through August."
Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned on Friday morning, after denouncing chaos in the West Wing and 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. The president requested that Mr. Spicer stay on, but Mr. Spicer told Mr. Trump that he believed the appointment was a major mistake, according to a person with direct knowledge of the exchange.
Anthony Scaramucci has accepted the position of White House communications director offered to him by President Donald Trump, sources confirm to ABC News. Scaramucci is replacing Mike Dubke, who resigned in May only three months after being hired... Scaramucci, 53, is a major Republican donor and was a member of the president's transition team.
