'He likes that type of competition': White House senior staff openly brawl, with Trump's approval -

View in ParlViewView other Segments

Another day, another crisis in the Trump White House: once again, entirely of its own making.

Donald Trump's chief of staff and his new communications director are in open warfare, being played out on cable news - apparently with the knowledge and approval of the President.

The appointment of financier Anthony Scaramucci to the communications job has already seen the White House's press secretary, Sean Spicer, resign in protest.

Now Scaramucci is openly accusing Priebus of leaking White House information to journalists.
