Anthony Scaramucci gave his first interview since he was fired as White House Communications Director with ABC. During the interview he heavily criticized President Trump and Steve Bannon. He first criticized President Trump for not condemning ‘white supremacists’ by name after the Charlottesville attack.
“I wouldn’t have recommended that statement. I think he needed to be much harsher as it related to the white supremacists. The nature of that. I applaud General McMaster for calling it out for what it is. It’s actually terrorism. Whether, it’s domestic or international terrorism, with the moral authority of the presidency, you have to call that stuff out,” said Scaramucci.
“Whether I was the White House Communications Director or not, I don’t think you’re going to change the president. The president is going to do what he wants to do, how he wants to do it. But I think its important for the people around him, George, to give him direct advice. To be blunt with him. I think he respects bluntness and he respects candor. And I certainly would have never suggested him doing that,” said Scaramucci.
ABC even asked if he believes Steve Bannon is a white supremcist. “I’ve never sat down with Steve Bannon and said, ‘Hey are you a white nationalist or a white supremacist?’ But I think the toleration of it by Steve Bannon is inexcusable,” Scaramucci said.
