Sean Spicer quit his job as White House press secretary Friday after President Trump decidedto tap Anthony Scaramucci as the White House communications director, according to two White House officials.

Spicer objected to the hiring, said the two officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly. He had taken on the communications director duties after the resignation of Mike Dubke back in May.Deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will replace Spicer as press secretary. Scaramucci announced the news himself during Friday’s briefing.

“Slow news day?” Sanders asked as she took the podium in a briefing room packed with reporters and clicking cameras.

She promised to “always work to operate at the highest level and with as much integrity as possible.”

According to one official, Spicer had sought the communications director job himself, with the understanding that a new press secretary would be brought in to work under him. Spicer interviewed candidates last month.

Months ago, Spicer, chief of staff Reince Priebus and others blocked Scaramucci from getting a position at the White House, saying he lacked the necessary experience and skills, the official said.

Spicer tweeted on Friday that it had been an “honor and privilege” to serve in the administration and that he would remain in his job through August.

During the briefing, Scaramucci wished Spicer well, saying, “I hope he goes on to make a tremendous amount of money.”

Scaramucci said he appreciated that Spicer wanted to give him a clean slate by leaving, but disputed that there’s any bad feelings.

“I don’t have any friction with Sean,” he said. “I don’t have any friction with Reince.”

Sanders seconded the idea of Spicer leaving to give Scaramucci a fresh start.

“He understands that the president wanted to bring in and add new people to the team and Sean felt like it’d be best for that team to start with a totally clean slate,” Sanders said. “It speaks volumes about who is to be willing to do that.”

Scaramucci also pushed back on the idea that White House is having trouble.

“This ship is going in the right direction,” Scaramucci said. “We’ve got to just radio signal the direction very, very quickly.”

Scaramucci insisted that he and chief of staff Priebus are a “team.”

“If teammates don’t have disagreements about certain things, then they won’t get to the championship,” he said.

Priebus told media outlets on Friday that he is “100%” behind Scaramucci’s appointment.

Sanders also pushed back on reports that the turnover on the White House staff had led to chaos.

“No, I don’t see it as chaotic,” she said. “If you want to see chaos, you should come to my house early in the morning when my three kids are running around.”

Spicer’s resignation came exactly six months after he gave his first briefing on Jan. 21. He is one of the shortest-serving press secretaries of all time, though his tenure was longer than that of Jerald terHorst, who served under President Ford for one month, and Jake Siewert, who was the press secretary for the final four months of the Clinton administration.
