Scaramucci's tweet was in response to Trump slamming Kelly for his critical remarks about the president.

“When I terminated John Kelly, which I couldn’t do fast enough, he knew full well that he was way over his head,” Trump tweeted Thursday. “Being Chief of Staff just wasn’t for him. He came in with a bang, went out with a whimper, but like so many X’s, he misses the action & just can’t keep his mouth shut.”

Kelly left the Trump administration at the end of 2018 and Mick Mulvaney was named acting White House chief of staff.
