Scaramucci:Trump 'needed to be much harsher' on white supremacists

Charlottesville Mayor Chides Trump Names Victim of Car Ramming

"Whether it's domestic or global terrorism, with the moral authority of the presidency, you have to call that stuff out".

Trump came under fire Saturday when he condemned the "hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides" during the violent white supremacist rally.

He said that if he was still working in the White House, he would not have recommended Trump make the statement he did.

"I think he needed to be much harsher as it related to the white supremacists", Scaramucci said. Scaramucci said. "I applaud General McMaster for calling it out for what it is - it's actually terrorism". "There were probably 200 people that didn't want me in that job".

The White House later Sunday issued a statement saying of Trump's condemnation: "Of course that includes white supremacists, KKK, Neo-Nazi and all extremist groups". "Maybe Ivanka would do that ... maybe Jared [Kushner] would do that", he said.

"He has to moved away from that sort of Bannon-bart nonsense", Scaramucci added. But to Scaramucci ― a Wall Street financier who served less than two weeks in his White House post last month ― the president's response was textbook Trump.

Scaramucci also hinted that the days are numbered for Trump's chief strategist, Steve Bannon.

"I think at the end of the day, the president knows who are the leakers ― the people undermining his agenda that are serving their own interests", Scaramucci said.

Expect McMaster et also be pressed on the "military option" for Venezuela, which the president laid on the table on Friday because, I guess, sounding "tough" is its own reward.

"He wrote the article like I was unhinged and overly emotional and bombastic", Scaramucci said of Lizza.

"What happens in 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", Scaramucci said in the ABC News interview on Sunday.
