The newly minted White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci took questions from reporters on Friday after it was announced that now-former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer would be resigning.

Scaramucci started by naming Principal Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Sanders as Spicer's replacement. He was also asked if he would commit to returning the cameras to the White House briefing room.

Scaramucci said “we may” but that he has to consult the issue with President Trump first.

The White House briefings have been off-camera since late last month, and this has raised concerns with many over access to information coming out of the White House.

The announcement of Scaramucci's new role has come under intense scrutiny, as Spicer reportedly resigned due to Scaramucci's appointment.

Tonight, Spicer, Scaramucci, and White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus will appear on Sean Hannity's program on Fox News.
