“We all serve at the pleasure of the president, and if he gets to a place where that isn’t the case, we’ll let you know,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters in response to a direct question.
The bombastic Scaramucci publicly insinuated Thursday that Priebus is a leaker — citing an incident that was not a leak.
The stunning comments came after he forced out a White House press aide who was close to the chief of staff. Priebus opposed Scaramucci’s appointment.
Both men had previously downplayed their animosity, but Scaramucci on Thursday offered some pointed comments toward the chief of staff and compared their relationship to brothers such as the biblical Cain and Abel.
Sanders downplayed the infighting as healthy competition that Trump enjoys.
“The president likes that type of competition and encourages it,” she said.
