More Top NewsWashington:Sean Spicer burst onto the public stage six months ago with a scolding rant against reporters accusing them of lowballing the size of President Donald Trump’s Inauguration Day crowd Following a turbulent half-year run as White House press secretary Spicer is leaving the building with a final burst of drama after rejecting what amounted to a downsising of his role Until he got swept up in Trump’s orbit Spicer had been a party functionary for the Republican National Committee well known and respected among Washington political operatives and reporters but with no national profile File image of Sean Spicer Reuters As Trump’s frontman at televised White House news briefings however the 45-year-old achieved a certain fame for defending the president at all costs through a variety of crises that have beset Trump’s young presidency He became instantly recognisable around the country and an inspiration for social media memes His live televised briefings drew big audiences for cable TV Spicer was lampooned on NBC’s "Saturday Night Live" with Melissa McCarthy playing the combative "Spicey" character swallowing gum and driving a motorised lectern into actors playing reporters who asked hard questions Asked what he thought of the show Spicer told Fox News in an interview on Friday: "I think that there were parts of it that were funny but there’s a lot of it that was over the line It wasn’t funny It was stupid or silly or malicious" Over time however Trump felt he was not being defended strongly enough by his communications team and that there were not enough people advocating for him on TV according to a Republican close to the White House In a crushing snub Spicer a devout Roman Catholic was kept off the list of White House officials who met Pope Francis when Trump visited the Vatican in May With Trump eager to make changes in his communications team the president began courting Anthony Scaramucci a New York financial whiz who has been an eloquent defender of Trump in TV interviews Scaramucci is a prominent Republican fundraiser who advised Trump during his presidential campaign last year after working first on rival Scott Walker’s campaign until it fizzled Trump met Scaramucci on Thursday and talked about making him communications director and planned a formal job interview and offer on Friday Spicer was dubious when told he would continue in the duties of press secretary and communications director with Scaramucci who is not experienced in the ways of Washington taking over the ceremonial title a source close to the White House press operation said "This is a joke" the source said "Trump wanted Scaramucci on television as a surrogate for the White House and wanted to give him more of a formal title There was simply no understanding by the president that the communications director title comes with lots of responsibilities not just going on television" When Trump went ahead with the hire on Friday and asked Spicer to stay on Spicer had had enough telling the president he was resigning the source said After the announcement was made to the White House communications staff at midmorning White House chief of staff Reince Priebus huddled with Spicer and Scaramucci privately Spicer told Fox News the president did not want him to go and had been "very gracious throughout this process" "I just thought it was in the best interest of our communications department of our press organisation to not have too many cooks in the kitchen" he said Trump tweeted late on Friday: "Sean Spicer is a wonderful person who took tremendous abuse from the Fake News Media – but his future is bright" Spicer spotted around the White House complex was described by colleagues as in a good mood and feeling he had made the right decision Paris: France’s already-battered tourism industry took a further hit in late July during what should have been the height of the season as foreign visitors stayed away after 84 people were killed in Nice on Bastille Day In the week following the 14 July attack on the Riviera city’s Promenade des Anglais boulevard arrivals by air slumped 88 percent compared to the same period in 2015 according to data from ForwardKeys which daily sifts more than 14 million air travel transactions The sector has been struggling for months not least since the 13 November attacks in and around Paris which claimed 130 lives Between January and July 10 arrivals to France by air were down 58 percent and down 11 percent to Paris Flight reservations to France following the Nice attack were down 20 percent Representational image AP France is the world’s top tourist destination and the tourism sector accounts for around nine per cent of GDP France had hoped the Euro 2016 football championships would give tourism a shot in the arm — but has been disappointed "Nice wiped out the Euro football effect which went off well in security terms and polished France’s image" said Frederic Valletoux chairman of the Ile de France regional tourist authority which covers the Paris region and its environs After Nice President Francois Hollande extended the state of emergency "which doesn’t help us — we continue to see customer numbers contract especially Americans and Asians" said Valletoux He says a consolation is that "French clients seem to be staying firm" even if Herve Becam chairman of the main hoteliers’ union Umih noted that overall "the trend is not good" The Cote d’Azur area around Nice usually a major summer draw saw hotel occupancy rates fall between five and 10 per cent through to latest figures running to last week And in Paris Umih expects a fall of nearer 20 percent hitting restaurants as well as hotels Other regions have also been hit including Normandy where a priest was killed by two jihadists last Tuesday Revenue per room for five-star Parisian establishments had been up nine per cent before the Nice attacks but by 28 July was 45 percent below the norm says Umih’s Prestige offshoot — which adds that Chinese demand has been sorely affected "What is new is the disaffection of Chinese clients for Paris and France" noted Umih Prestige saying that some business congresses scheduled for the second half of the year had been cancelled Prior to Nice July had been looking strong but "the 14 July attack brusquely pushed us down five per
