Anthony Scaramucci, the back-slapping Wall Street hedge fund magnate, is a long-time Republican donor and fundraiser who once criticized Donald J. Trump, the presidential candidate, CNBC reported.

But he eventually became one of Trump’s biggest defenders, and after months of delays he is finally getting what he has worked for behind the scenes since last year: a position in the Trump White House.

He was originally going to be a White House adviser and liaison to the business community. That didn’t happen. Then he was offered the post of U.S. ambassador to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. That didn’t happen. In June, he was named chief strategy officer of the Export-Import Bank.

Now, he is White House communications director.
