The White House press secretary, Sean Spicer resigned on Friday.
This is considered as a silent protest to President Donald Trump’s appointment of Anthony Scaramucci as his new communications director.
His sudden resignation comes on the heels of mounting pressure on Trump from a special investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 US presidential elections.
According to sources, Trump asked Spicer not to resign, but he opposed him saying, however, that that he believed the appointment was a major mistake.
Scaramucci, who founded the global investment firm SkyBridge Capital and is a Fox News Channel contributor.
He is known for his spirited on-air defense of Mr. Trump, but he also enjoys good relationships with journalists from an array of outlets, including those the president has labeled “fake news.”
