The announcement comes at the same time that the White House named Anthony Scaramucci as the new White House communications director.

Scaramucci was a campaign fundraiser for President Donald Trump.

A White House official and top GOP adviser said Trump asked Spicer to stay on, but he resigned anyway.

Spicer reportedly thanked his team to a round of applause and says he will help with the transition, but sources say he is upset about the departure.
