Trump's top spin doctor Sean Spicer quits White House role

Trump's top spin doctor Sean Spicer quits White House role

And we're going to work hard to close that spread. The President also gives interviews, without taking the team into confidence.

Sanders and Scaramucci held an on-camera briefing together Friday - the first from the White House all month -- in a show of solidarity.

Spicer on Friday confirmed he left because of the president's plans to bring in new people, like Scaramucci.

The president frequently opts to directly speak to the public via Twitter. Scaramucci said to laughter, referring to the president. "I'm just going to make it very, very clear, okay?"

Mr Spicer, 45, had become one of the most recognisable faces of Mr Trump's administration, in part due to mockery at the hands of Melissa McCarthy, who parodied him to devastating effect on Saturday Night Live.

"If we don't get the leaks stopped, I am a businessperson, and so I will take dramatic action to stop those leaks", Scaramucci said on Fox News Sunday. "And he will probably dial back some of those tweets".




Scaramucci, 52, is a major Republican donor and longstanding supporter of Donald Trump, notwithstanding previous criticism he leveled at the U.S. president.

"I think it's super important for us to let him express his personality", Scaramucci said, adding, "It has been a very successful life experience for president Trump to be president Trump so let's let him do that. Maybe they didn't do it".

The 45-year-old lead communications at the Republican National Committee for several years before lending a hand to the Trump campaign ahead of the US Presidential Elections last year.

Priebus also denied reports that there is any tension or animosity between himself and Scaramucci. "So, I would like to continue to use the hair and makeup person". "I obviously am committed to being transparent because I'm standing here". Some of the tweets were at odds with Trump's views, including one that praised Hillary Clinton's competence.

Trump then began calling out media outlets by name in response to a Washington Post report Friday that said Attorney General Jeff Sessions did, in fact, discuss matters related to Trump's presidential campaign during controversial meetings with the Russian ambassador to the USA last summer. "He has been a great supporter and will now help implement key aspects of our agenda while leading the communications team".
