President Donald Trump fired Anthony Scaramucci on Monday just ten days after he took the position of White House Communications Director. One day later, however, Scaramucci has made a surprising announcement that has left many stunned.
Daily Mail reported that Scaramucci has been telling his friends that he is expecting to be given another role in Trump’s White House. Two sources close to the situation say that Scaramucci would like to go back to the Export-Import bank, and the president could grant his wish.
Scaramucci has not left Washington D.C. since his firing and he was spotted on Tuesday at Trump International Hotel, a few blocks down from the White House.
Earlier today, Corey Lewandowksi, ex-campaign manager for Donald Trump, went on Fox & Friends to say that he expects the president to give Scaramucci, a major Republican bundler, a job elsewhere in the administration.
“I think so,” Lewandowski said. “There’s a lot of jobs out there in the administration, and the communications director wasn’t the right role for him, but my guess is the president will find a spot for him somewhere.”
Scaramucci was fired days after he had a meltdown on former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, who he called a “f***ing paranoid schizophrenic” then claimed that unlike Trump’s chief strategist he’s not “trying to suck my own c**k.” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Monday that this was partly why Trump fired him.
“The president certainly felt that Anthony’s comments were inappropriate for a person in that position,” Huckabee Sanders said.
She went on to say that there was a desire not to “burden” Trump’s new White House chief of staff, John Kelly, who had requested that Scaramucci be ousted.
“Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director,” Sanders said. “Mr. Scaramucci felt it was best to give chief of staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team. We wish him all the best.”
