Scaramucci, 53, put in his papers just hours after Gen (rtd) Kelly was sworn by Trump as the new White House Chief of Staff.
According to The New York Times, the decision to remove Scaramucci, “who had boasted about reporting directly to the president, not the chief of staff, John Kelly, came at Kelly’s request.
Kelly, who was sworn in today, made clear to members of the White House staff at a meeting today that he is in charge, the daily said, quoting sources.
For the past few days, Scaramucci has been in news for use of unparliamentary language against his own colleagues and going public to threaten to fire anyone from the White House who leaked information about the Trump administration.
It is not clear if Scaramucci would continue to be inside the White House in some other capacity.
