More Changes in Trump's White House
U.S. President Donald Trump swore in a new chief of staff for the White House on Monday. Hours later, the communications director resigned after only 11 days on the job.
Trump administration officials said in a statement that "Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director."
Scaramucci left just hours after Trump officially welcomed retired General John Kelly as his chief of staff. The White House statement read, "Mr. Scaramucci felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team."
Scaramucci was named to the position on July 21. His appointment led to the resignation of press secretary Sean Spicer on the same day. Scaramucci then accused chief of staff Reince Priebus of leaking information about him. He also threatened to fire the rest of the White House communications team.
In a late-night telephone call to reporter Ryan Lizza of The New Yorker, Scaramucci used profane language to talk about Reince Priebus and chief strategist Steve Bannon.
Trump announced that he would appoint John Kelly as his new chief of staff replacing Priebus last Friday.
On Monday, Trump tweeted "No WH White House chaos" before holding a Cabinet meeting with John Kelly at his side. Seated across from Trump was Attorney General Jeff Sessions who has remained in his position, although the president has criticized him.
Before campaigning for the presidency, Trump was the host of "The Apprentice," a reality television show. He was then known for saying the phrase, "You're fired!" on the program.
As president, one of Trump's first appointments was retired General Michael Flynn. Trump named Flynn national security adviser in January. However, Flynn resigned 23 days later when it became known that he did not reveal his meeting with Russia's ambassador to the U.S.
Trump removed Acting Attorney General Sally Yates on January 30. She had refused to enforce or defend an executive order. The order placed a travel ban on people from seven Muslim-majority countries.
Then on May 9, Trump dismissed Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation James Comey. Comey's firing led to the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller to oversee the investigation of "Russian government efforts to influence the 2016 election and related matters."
Mike Dubke, the president's first communications director, resigned later in May, after two months on the job. Then-press secretary Sean Spicer took over as acting communications director.
However, the position remained open for another two months before Scaramucci's appointment.

周一，美国总统特朗普让新任白宫幕僚长宣誓就职 。数小时后，上任仅11天的白宫通讯总监宣布辞职 。
特朗普政府官员在一份声明中称，“安东尼·斯卡拉姆齐（Anthony Scaramucci）将从白宫通讯总监的岗位上离职 。”
距特朗普正式欢迎退役将领约翰·凯利（John Kelly）担任白宫幕僚长后仅数小时，斯卡拉姆齐就遭到撤职 。白宫声明称，“斯卡拉姆齐觉得最好给新任的幕僚长凯利留‘一张白纸，’让他可以组建自己的团队 。”
7月21日，斯卡拉姆齐被任命为白宫通讯总监 。当日，白宫新闻秘书肖恩·斯派塞（Sean Spicer）因这项任命辞职 。随后，斯卡拉姆齐指责白宫幕僚长雷恩斯·普里巴斯(Reince Priebus)泄漏了关于他的信息 。他还威胁要开除白宫通讯团队的其他人员 。
在与《纽约客》记者瑞恩·利萨（Ryan Lizza）的深夜通话中，斯卡拉姆齐谈到普里巴斯和首席战略顾问斯蒂夫·班农（Steve Bannon）时语言粗俗 。
周一，特朗普在与凯利举行内阁会议前发推文称，白宫没有混乱 。总检察长杰夫·塞申斯（Jeff Sessions）经常与特朗普唱反调，虽然总统对他十分不满，但他仍然在职 。
特朗普在竞选总统前曾担任真人秀节目《学徒》主持人 。当时，他因节目中的那句经典台词“你被解雇了”而爆红 。
特朗普就任总统后的第一批任命就包括退役将领迈克尔·弗林（Michael Flynn） 。1月份，特朗普任命弗林为国家安全顾问 。然而，弗林在上任23天后辞职，原因是他隐瞒的与俄罗斯驻美大使会面一事被曝光 。
1月30日，特朗普将代理总检察长莎莉·伊茨(Sally Yates)撤职，因她拒绝执行或捍卫一项行政命令 。这项命令要求对7个以穆斯林为主的国家施加旅行禁令 。
5月9日，特朗普解除了联邦调查局局长詹姆斯·科米（James Comey）的职务 。科米遭解职后，特别顾问罗伯特·穆勒（Robert Mueller）接受了任命，他负责监督对“俄罗斯政府干涉美国2016年大选及相关事宜”的调查 。
5月末，特朗普总统的第一任白宫通讯总监麦克·杜布克(Mike Dubke)在任职2个月后宣布辞职 。时任白宫新闻秘书斯派塞接任成为白宫代理通讯总监 。
