In his first remarks as White House director of communications, Anthony Scaramucci announced that Sarah Huckabee Sanders will take over as head press secretary, following Sean Spicer’s resignation.

Sanders previously served as deputy White House press secretary.

Spicer’s resignation was announced as news broke that Scaramucci had been hired as the director of communications, a position that had been vacant since Mike Dubke resigned in May.
