White House figures plotting against Donald Trump: Scaramucci

Posted August 14, 2017

"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.

Anthony Scaramucci did not go gentle into that good night as he initially promised, and instead treated the world to a dose of his signature tri-state antics during an interview this morning on ABC. "He's got to move more into the mainstream".

Anthony Scaramucci's tenure as Donald Trump's White House communications director was quite brief, but it still gave him a strong sense of the firm grip that white supremacist ideology has on this administration.

A former Wall Street financier, Mr Scaramucci was sacked from his job at the end of a chaotic 10 days which started with White House press secretary Steve Spicer resigning.

"I think there are elements inside of Washington, also inclusive in the White House, that are not necessarily abetting the president's interests or his agenda".

Mr Scaramucci has spoke to ABC News in his first interview since he was sacked last month.

"I think [Trump] needed to be much harsher as it relates to the white supremacists", said Scaramucci.

"I wouldn't have recommended that statement", Scaramucci said of Trump's words on Saturday from Bedminster, New Jersey.

The body has usurped the powers of the national assembly, and is tasked with rewriting the south American country's constitution. The offer came after the USA last week imposed sanctions on Maduro , who the Trump administration has labeled "a dictator".

The "alt-right", though once a term used to describe millennial and hipster conservatives, is now reserved for white nationalist groups and websites. On Saturday, the president had blamed "many sides".

Asked if that included Bannon, Scaramucci said, "Well, yeah". "I'm not trying to build my own brand" on the president's coattails", he added.

The mild statement which failed to condemn the supremacists' move has brought him under criticism.

He also called on Trump to distance himself from top adviser Steve Bannon, the divisive former head of Breitbart News who Scaramucci argued was pulling Trump too far to the right and was "not serving the president's interest". The president is going to do what he wants to do, how he wants to do it.

"I get to work together with a broad range of talented people, and it is a privilege every day to enable the national security team", McMaster said.

A phone recording between Mr Scaramucci and a journalist was then released in which the communications directly attacked then White House chief of staff Reince Priebus.

"But you didn't ask for it to be off the record", Stephanopoulos said.
