Sean Spicer resigned his position as White House press secretary on Friday due to his strong opposition to the appointment of Anthony Scaramucci as the new communications director.
Spicer told President Donald Trump that it was a mistake to give the position to Scaramucci, a Wall Street financier and longtime supporter of Trump’s, the New York Times reports. Trump offered Scaramucci the position at 10 a.m. on Friday, according to the report.
He replaces Mike Dubke, who resigned the post in May.
ABC reporter Jonathan Karl tweeted Friday morning that Spicer slammed a door in his face when he went to ask him questions about Scaramucci’s appointment.
