Anthony Scaramucci breaks silence after White House exit

Tuesday, 15 Aug, 2017

"With the moral authority of the presidency", Scaramucci added, "you have to call that stuff out".

On Saturday, Trump made a widely panned statement on the weekend of violence in Charlottesville, Virginia that was sparked by white nationalist and neo-Nazi protesters.

Trump's remarks came after 20-year-old James Fields of OH allegedly used his Dodge Charger to ram a crowd of counter-protesters, killing a 32-year-old woman and injuring 19 more.

He was arrested Saturday evening and faces charges including second-degree murder. Asked whether he told Priebus that he thought he was a "paranoid schizophrenic", as he told Lizza, Scaramucci said, "I did tell him that.He knows I feel that way". Stephanopoulos: Name names. Scaramucci: Well, I named some names.

But I disagree with it. "And if he doesn't do that, you're going to see inertia and you're going to see this resistance from more of the establishment senators that he needs to curry favour with".

In his own condemnations, Trump never mentioned white supremacists nor Nazis.

Two senior Trump advisers - one inside the White House and another who recently departed - signaled Sunday that the knives are out for Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump's controversial chief strategist.

"I don't think you're going to change the president", Scaramucci said.

Anthony Scaramucci hinted on Sunday that Steve Bannon is on his way out of the White House.

"And so I respect Gen. Kelly and my feeling about the whole thing is that what happened was sort of meant to happen". "He's got to move more into the mainstream", Scaramucci said. Cory Gardner, R-Colo.

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, got more personal when he gave his warning. "That's life!" Scaramucci wrote, in a similar tagline as his Twitter account. "The Mooch" answered that it was up to Trump, but suggested that the president already has a plan for Bannon. The chilling came as Bannon fought with Jared Kushner, a top Trump aide and the President's son-in-law.

"I believe that everyone who works in the White House, who has the privilege, the great privilege every day of serving their nation, should be motivated by that goal", McMaster said. The president is going to do what he wants to do, how he wants to do it.

When Stephanopoulos asked if Bannon was one of those people, Scaramucci replied yes.

While Trump used the word "bigotry" in his remarks, he drew criticism from members of both political parties for not specifically rebuking white nationalists or supremacists.

"People have made a decision they want to eject him", Scaramucci said as he believes Trump opens the door for those outside the system, such as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, to enter the Washington political field. And I have to own that.

He'll also appear Monday night on Stephen Colbert's Late Show.

Trump has been heavily criticised for his response to the attack.

"I just pick myself up and get back in the race!"

STEPHANOPOULOS: So, he's fighting an enemy within the White House?
