Former #White House press secretary Sean Spicer objected to the hiring of Anthony Scaramucci as the White House communications director. Therefore, Spicer announced he was leaving in late August. Now that Scaramucci has been removed from his job after only 10 days, people are wondering if Spicer will still leave or change his mind and stay.

A senior White House official ended the speculation on Tuesday by announcing that Spicer has not changed his mind. Therefore, he will still leave as he had planned. In just a short period of time, Spicer has been inundated with job offers that are much too good not to consider.

Spicer's White House tenure

Spicer was given the job of Trump's first press secretary even before the president took the oath of office.

He was named the White House press secretary on December 22, 2016. Two days later, he was also named the communications director after the abrupt resignation of Jason Miller.

After having been in the position for only a few months, a poll showed on April 2017 that Spicer had a name recognition of 60 percent. That was much higher than any other press secretary or White House staffer. Perhaps it was because he made some mistakes at the beginning and because of Melissa McCarthy's parodies of him on "Saturday Night Live."

Newsweek reported that the 45-year-old former press secretary spent an entire day in New York City last week meeting with executives at major broadcast networks about a new career in television. For those who were speculating about Spicer's career goal, it is safe to say that the public will not see him in the White House after August, but he will be seen in some other capacity on television in the future.

Organizational chart

Trump's homeland security secretary and retired General John Kelly was hired to replace Reince Priebus after he was fired as chief of staff last week. It was recently reported that Kelly is giving the communications director position to senior homeland security official and veteran government spokesman David Lapan. The biggest change with Kelly being the chief of staff is that all staffers in the West Wing will report directly to him. That includes Ivanka Trump, her husband Jared Kushner and Steve Bannon.

People are wishing Spicer and his family well in whatever he decides to do after leaving the White House. He and his wife, Rebecca Miller, live in Alexandria, Virginia with their two children. #Sean Spicer #Anthony Scaramucci
