President Donald Trump tweeted that Ret. Gen. John Kelly is the new White House chief of staff. Priebus successfully convinced Trump not to give Scaramucci a role in his administration in January. Katie Walsh, who served as Priebus' deputy chief of staff at the White House, left in March, and on July 21, press secretary Sean Spicer resigned.
"He'll be asked to resign very shortly" Scaramucci said.
Priebus previously served as the chairman of the Republican National Committee.
Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos also took to Twitter on Friday, in defense of Preibus, calling his dismissal a "dumb move" by White House insiders. When Trump returned to Washington, he told reporters that John Kelly "will do a fantastic job" and is "respected by everybody".
Priebus says he intends to continue working at the White House for a couple of weeks to ease the transition of his replacement. "'I know a good spot, you should go to that place in Kenosha, '" said Priebus. Scaramucci called Priebus a "paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac".
"The person who may benefit most from this change is President Trump".
He also said that he doesn't support the idea of registering people based on their religion or ethnicity and also said he doesn't think religion should be used as the foundation for law enforcement or counterrorism operations.
He added of the retired Marine general: "John Kelly will do a fantastic job".
His exit also follows the latest collapse of the congressional effort to repeal and replace Obamacare, one of Trump's top legislative priorities.
