Scaramucci’s brief tenure was marked by a determination to crack down on White House leaks to the media and profanity-filled comments to The New Yorker
Trump’s loose decision-making style and open door policy has caused the White House to descend into chaos due to jockeying and infighting among staff and advisers.

“If we don’t get the leaks stopped, I am a businessperson, and so I will take dramatic action to stop those leaks,” Anthony Scaramucci said, calling leakers “un-American.”
