He took this step after his new communications director Anthony Scaramucci accused Priebus of leaking some vital information to reporters. Trump had also lost confidence in Priebus after when a large number of legislative items failed to pass through the U.S. Congress. As per reports, former chief of staff Priebus had filled his resignation after Scaramucci's accusations against him was published in the New Yorker Magazine.

Trump issued his decision as soon as he landed aboard Air Force One after a visit to Long Island. In fact, Priebus was on the plane with him but refrained from speaking about the situation with anyone. Meanwhile, the reports from the White House stated that Donald Trump had informed Priebus two weeks ago that he would be replacing him John Kelly and this decision was not at all influenced by Scaramucci's move.
