US President Donald Trump fired White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci Monday, Fox News reported.

"Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement Monday afternoon. "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."

Scaramucci took up the position just ten days ago. New White House Chief of Staff John Kelly reportedly pushed for Scaramucci's termination as communications director.
