“Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House communications director,” said press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in a statement on Monday afternoon.

He has not been moved to another White House post, she added.

The dismissal of Scaramucci has only increased the sense of chaos at the heart of the Trump administration.

Following the news, President Trump had tweeted in the morning about job and wage figures and insisted there is "No White House chaos", referring to reports about fighting among White House staff.

Mr. Scaramucci earlier called a reporter to attack Mr. Priebus as a "paranoid schizophrenic" and accuse him of leaking information to the media.

He also promised to fire every member of the communications team, as part of his crusade against "leakers".
