White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci has been fired after fewer than 10 days in the post.

The former Wall Street financier had drawn criticism after calling a reporter to give a profanity-laced tirade against his colleagues.

US President Trump's chief of staff Reince Priebus and spokesman Sean Spicer both left their posts with his appointment.

The decision was made by President Trump's new chief of staff, Gen John Kelly, who was sworn in on Monday.

The White House confirmed that the president was also unhappy with Scaramucci's performance.

President Trump's spokeswoman, Sarah Sanders, said the president thought Scaramucci's comments to the reporter "were inappropriate for a person in that position".
