Former White House communications director Anthony ScaramucciAnthony ScaramucciThe Memo: Trump caves after negative images, pressure from family Scaramucci 'very proud' of Trump decision to end family separations Scaramucci: Lewandowski should apologize for mocking girl with Down syndrome MORE will host a live event online Friday to directly address President Trump's base about his dismissal after just 10 days in the position.
 
The event will be broadcast live during the daytime, with the assistance of former Fox News co-president Bill Shine, CNN reported Wednesday.
 
Scaramucci told CNN he only planned to stay on as communications director for six to nine months as a "special purpose vehicle" to put an end to the feuding factions within the White House. He also said he considers his short time in the White House a success.
 
New chief of staff John Kelly promptly fired Scaramucci upon taking office Monday.

Trump named Scaramucci communications director on July 21, a development that led the resignation of former White House press secretary Sean Spicer. 

Scaramucci came under fire days later after he delivered a profanity-laced tirade against former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus and other staffers during an interview with The New Yorker. Priebus resigned soon after. 

Scaramucci will reportedly announce his next business venture after Labor Day. He will not retain his former post as chief strategy officer of the U.S. Export-Import Bank.
