BREAKING: Sean Spicer has resigned as White House press secretary

Sean Spicer, the White House's embattled press secretary, announced his resignation on Friday morning, after telling President Donald Trump that he strongly disagreed with the selection of Anthony Scaramucci as White House communications director.

Trump offered Scaramucci the top communications post at 10 a.m. on Friday and, according to the Times sources, Spicer told the president that he believed the decision was a significant misstep.

The White House didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
