The (18) most notable firings and resignations in the Trump administration

A lot of people have left President Trump’s early administration — Anthony Scaramucci was removed as director of communications on Monday, three days after the replacement of Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.

The White House communications staff has been the scene of many of the recent turnovers as it wrestles to craft a message sometimes at odds with Trump’s frequent tweeting.

At the National Security Council, there has been a leadership struggle since Michael Flynn resigned in the face of pressure over undisclosed contacts with Russia. One appointee was fired over comments he made at a private function. Others have been removed as Flynn’s successor, H.R. McMaster, has moved to add loyalists to the council.

Here are the most noteworthy departures and the number of days each spent in the administration before heading for the exit.
