Scaramucci on Trump Charlottesville statement: The president

I think he needed to be much harsher as it related to the white supremacists.

During the interview Sunday, McMaster also said aide Sebastian Gorka is not a member of the national security council.

Scaramucci also bashed the influence of Bannon, the former Breitbart News executive.

"What happens in Washington.is the president is not a representative of the political establishment class, so for whatever reason the people have made a decision that they want to eject him", Mr Scaramucci said.

Scaramucci offered no details, but added, "I think the president has a very good idea of who the leakers are inside the White House. The president has a very good idea of the people that are undermining his agenda that are serving their own interests".

Scaramucci - who held the top White House communications job for just 11 days - urged current administration officials to directly disagree with Trump if he's wrong, but hypothesized that the president responded in that way because he "likes doing the opposite of what the media thinks he's going to do", and he is "of the impression that there is hatred on all sides".

A driver plowed into demonstrators protesting against white supremacists in Charlottesville, killing a young woman and injuring almost 20 others.

On ABC's This Week, Scaramucci expressed dismay over the hold that someone like chief strategist Steve Bannon, as well as Bannon's former home of Breitbart News, has over Trump. Republicans and Democrats immediately criticized Trump's lackluster condemnation.

"Is Steve Bannon a white nationalist, a white supremacist?" he asked. "He called for national unity and bringing all Americans together".

During his brief time working for the US President, Mr Scaramucci turned the White House upside down.

Flowers surround a photo of 32-year-old Heather Heyer, who was killed when a vehicle plowed into a crowd of people protesting against the white supremacist Unite the Right rally, August 13, 2017 in Charlottesville, Virginia. While some places require both parties to consent to being recorded, Washignton, D.C., where Lizza received the call, does not.

Studies have revealed the President's path to victory past year was paved in the most part by four groups, including free marketeers, anti-elites, American preservationists, and staunch conservatives. He then said, "I would prefer to let the president make the decisions the president needs to make".

Asked if he believed he deserved to be fire, he said, "obviously I wished they would've given me a bar of soap and told me to wash my mouth out in the bathroom and move on".
