You’re Fired! All the Officials Trump Has Dismissed

Tom Price is only the latest high-profile Trump official to leave the administration.

President Trump dismissed Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price Friday, after revelations that the secretary had used private jets to travel around the country.

The firing is only the latest in a series of high-profile administration shakeups from a president whose previous tagline was “You’re fired!”

Here’s a list of Trump’s most-famous firings so far:

James Comey: The firing of the former FBI director could be Trump’s most consequential firing, as it prompted the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Sally Yates: After the acting attorney general refused to defend the president’s travel ban, Trump fired her immediately.

Reince Priebus: The chief of staff left the White House when Trump decided the administration needed a new direction and made John Kelly his new chief of staff.

Anthony Scaramucci: Scaramucci spent only 10 days as White House communications director, but that was enough for him to commit fireable offenses.

Mike Flynn: The president dismissed his national security advisor early in the administration, after investigations into Flynn’s conduct became public.
