New White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci is the new sheriff in Washington D.C. and he has a message for the White House staff: the leaks will stop.
New White House hire Anthony Scaramucci has a message for anyone leaking information from the White House: don’t leak or you’ll be fired.
“Tomorrow I’m going to have a staff meeting. And it’s going to be a very binary thing. I’m not going to make any prejudgments about anybody on that staff. If they want to stay on the staff, they’re going to stop leaking,” Scaramucci, the incoming White House communications director, said Sunday on CBS News’ “Face the Nation.”
“If you’re going to keep leaking, I’m going to fire everybody. It’s just very binary,” he said.
He also called people who are “standing around” the president and leaking information “un-American.”
Scaramucci said he is going to work on changing the White House “culture” to help prevent further leaks, calling them “unprofessional and harmful.” He also addressed one of President Trump’s recent tweets that mentioned leaking.
“While all agree the U. S. President has the complete power to pardon, why think of that when only crime so far is LEAKS against us,” Mr. Trump tweeted on Saturday.
