A number of United States senators slammed the president for refusal to name far-right activists responsible for the violence, while former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci recommended the president to be "harsher" in reaction to such events.

"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", he said while suggesting that Bannon may be one of the "leakers undermining [the president's] agenda".

Trump on Saturday said "many sides" were responsible for the violence in Virginia.

He continued: "He's got to move more into the mainstream, he's got to be more into where the moderates are and the independents are that love the president". I think he needed to be much harsher as it related to white supremacists and the nature of [the rally].

"The President said very strongly in his statement yesterday that he condemns all forms of violence, bigotry and hatred and of course that includes white Supremacists, KKK [Ku Klux Klan], neo-nazi and all extremist groups".

During the interview, his first sitdown TV interview since he left the White House after 10 days on the job, Scaramucci also told ABC he believed chief strategist Steve Bannon was one of the White House's biggest problems. "If the president really wants to execute that legislative agenda that I think is so promising for the American people, the lower-middle class people and the middle class people, then he has to move away from that sort of Bannon-bart nonsense".

Scaramucci said the president can't be told what to do, but said those around him should "give him direct advice" and "be blunt with him".

"I applaud General McMaster [Trump's national security adviser] for calling it out for what it is, it's actually terrorism".
