Following the May resignation of Mike Dubke, President Donald Trump has been looking for a new communications director.
It is being reported, although there has not yet been a formal announcement, that Trump has found a replacement.
Per the Daily Caller:
President Trump is expected to name New York financier Anthony Scaramucci as his next communications director, according to a source familiar with the situation.
News of the hire was first reported by Axios late Thursday night.
Scaramucci will replace Mike Dubke, who stepped down on May 30 from the position. The reported new hire was an early supporter of Trump’s candidacy and was a member of his presidential transition.
This communications position will be a first for Scaramucci:
Scaramucci, 53, is the founder of SkyBridge Capital and was named the chief strategist for the U.S. Export-Import Bank in June.
The New York financier has long been involved in Republican politics as a donor, but has no experience in communications work. He does, however, appear frequently on television to go to bat for the president.
Jason Miller, Trump’s communications director during the presidential campaign, tweeted after news broke of the hire, “YES! Love bringing back the [Scaramucci] here. Great hire!
