White House press secretary Sean Spicer resigns
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has quit, reportedly in protest at a shake-up of the communications team.
Spicer stepped down because he was unhappy with President Donald Trump’s appointment of a new communications director, reports the New York Times.
Combative Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci has been picked for the role that Spicer partially filled.
Spicer’s press briefings were a cable news hit, but he withdrew from camera in recent weeks.
