US President Donald Trump fired his new communications director Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci from the White House over the use of unparliamentary language against his White House colleagues.

Scaramucci, 53, who was appointed as the White House Director of Communications only 10 days ago and was reporting directly to the president, was in the news for the past few days, especially for the “unparliamentary” language used by him against his White House colleagues.

In an interview last week, he used unparliamentary language against his White House colleagues and threatened to fire everyone from the White House who leaked information.

“The President certainly felt that Anthony’s comments were inappropriate for a person in that position. He didn’t want to burden General Kelly also with that line of succession,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters at her daily news conference.

In the last 10 days, Trump has fired three of his top officials. It first began with his Press Secretary Sean Spicer, followed by Priebus and now Scaramucci, who probably has the shortest stint as the White House Director of Communications.
