WHITE HOUSE —
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has resigned.
Sources quoted in media reports say his decision to step down is linked to the appointment of new White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci. They say President Trump's spokesman offered his resignation shortly after Scaramucci, a New York financier, was named.
Spicer’s press briefings had drawn large audiences on television and social media. Recently, deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has taken over most briefings, and held them off-camera.
