Trump dines with Sean Hannity, Scaramucci at White House

President Trump reportedly had a private dinner late Wednesday with Fox News's Sean Hannity, former Fox executive Bill Shine and new White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.

The dinner at the White House was intended to focus on the president's political strategy, a senior administration official told The Washington Post.

It was also meant as an opportunity for a discussion on shaking up the West Wing staff, according to the Post.

The senior White House official described the meal as "social."
