Scaramucci: On-Camera Briefings Are Back

Newly minted White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci announced Monday on-camera press briefings are back. 

White House press briefings have been largely held off-camera since June. On Friday, Press Secretary Sean Spicer submitted his resignation and Deputy Principal Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders was promoted to his position. 

"Sarah will be the press secretary," Scaramucci said. "The President loves Sarah and thinks she is doing a phenomenal job. I agree with him."

Huckabee-Sanders is the third woman to serve as White House Press Secretary. Spicer will remain his position until August in order to help with the staff transition.
