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

"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", he said. The president has been criticized for not specifically calling out the white supremacists and neo-Nazi groups at Saturday's rally. The rally led to clashes between the demonstrators and counter-protesters, culminating in a vehicle ramming attack, which left one person dead and over 30 injured. The New York Post reports that Shine has turned down the communications director job left vacant by Anthony Scaramucci, who lasted just 10 days before famously imploding in full public view.

Scaramucci had boasted that he reported directly to the president and not the former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus. "He's a four-star from the Marines, and he carries himself like a four-star from the Marines", Trump added.

But Scaramucci steered clear from using over-the-top statements, and instead made a point of having a calm conversation with the ABC News host. "It was given a platform by Steve Bannon at Breitbart News and the Trump administration needs to remove from the federal government anyone who has had any association with this so-called alt-right movement".

Asked about the call on This Week Sunday morning, Scaramucci said "the words were mischaracterized in the original article", before noting that Lizza is "not misquoting me, but he is mischaracterizing me".

He said that some of the turbulence of Trump's first six months is because "the president is not a representative of political establishment class, and for whatever reason people want to eject him".

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci talks with reporters during "Regional Media Day" at the White House in Washington, DC on July 25.

"I went in there with my heart and soul", he said.
