Trump to Name Scaramucci Communications Director **Update** Scaramucci Accepts Job

New York financier, Anthony Scaramucci may be joining the Trump administration soon as White House Communications Director.

President Trump is expected to announce that Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci will be White House communications director, according to two sources familiar with the planning.

Trump has left the role open since Mike Dubke resigned in May, and the President has vented frequently to his friends about the performance of his press operation.

“Mooch,” as he’s known to friends, is a major Republican donor who supported Trump during the general election campaign — after fundraising during the primaries for Scott Walker and Jeb Bush. He frequently appears on Fox News and is a longtime friend of Sean Hannity.
