The former White House press secretary Sean Spicer told the White House press “I am proud to have worked with each and every one of you” in a gracious farewell email after an often combative term in the post.
Spicer announced his resignation from the White House in July after Anthony Scaramucci’s appointment as communications director (though Scaramucci would last only 10 days in the post).
Spicer officially completed his duties at the end of August.
“It has been the honor of a lifetime to serve the President and the American people as the White House press secretary,” Spicer wrote in his email on Thursday night.
Spicer singled out President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump, thanking them for their support and giving him the opportunity to serve.
“Walking into the White House every day is a privilege that few in our country experience and I am grateful for it,” Spicer wrote.
Spicer has been succeeded by Sarah Huckabee Sanders as press secretary.
