Trump also named Sarah Huckabee Sanders as his new press secretary, elevating her to Spicer's erstwhile position, sealing a move that had been the subject of much speculation.
Donald Trump's much-maligned media man, best known for his regular guest spot on Saturday Night Live, resigned on Friday following the appointment of NY financier Anthony Scaramucci as White House communications director.
White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci tried to discredit the "Russia" probes on Sunday by claiming the Kremlin couldn't have hacked Democratic e-mails because it is too skilled to get caught.
Spicer will be staying on until August 2017 to help with transitioning Sanders and Scaramucci into their new roles. "He was just making the statement about the power of pardon", Scaramucci added.
"We have enough outlets whether it's Breitbart, the president's social media tweet-feed, all of the different apparatus that we have where people will allow us to deliver our message to the American people unfiltered", he said. "President Trump's unwavering commitment to making America great again will no doubt ensure that these successes continue in the coming months and years".

Spicer, according to United States media, turned in his resignation on the morning of Friday, 21st July, over disagreements about the appointment of Anthony Scaramucci to the post of the Director of Communications in the White House. "That's the problem." Scaramucci responded that we must let Trump "run the presidency the way he wants to run the presidency".
"Full transparency: I'm deleting old tweets", Anthony Scaramucci posted. "A person that's going to be super, super tough on Russian Federation is President Donald J. Trump", Scaramucci said.
Sanders had taken over the press briefings recently and made them off-camera events, sending many liberal journalists like CNN's Jim Acosta into a meltdown. But the news outlet noted he faces obstacles as political outsiders gain influence in the White House and he and the rest of the GOP struggle to pass major legislation.
Sen. Ben Cardin, a Democrat from Maryland, noted on "Fox News Sunday" that wide, bipartisan support for the measure meant even if Trump tried to veto the bill, Congress could pass it into law. But if you're going to keep leaking, I'm going to fire everybody.
