Anthony Scaramucci defends brief White House stay in interview

13 August 2017, 11:15 | Erica Roy

A number of USA 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.

"You also got this sort of Bannon-bart influence in there, which I think is a snag on the president", Scaramucci said. The president's gonna to do what he wants to do, how he wants to do it. It's not serving the president's interests.

The White House clarified on Sunday the recent US President Donald Trump's statement regarding the violence in Charlottesville, ABC News media reported.

During an interview on ABC's "This Week", Scaramucci was asked whether he thinks he deserved to be fired after a vulgar tirade about Trump administration officials.


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". Scaramucci said Trump should have more directly blamed white nationalists.

After clashes broke out between white supremacists and protesters in the university town, the president condemned "hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides" during a live address but stopped short of denouncing the far-right. "I think [Trump] needed to be much harsher as it related to white supremacists".

"I made an unforced error that made it easy to dismiss me", he said of the New Yorker interview. But I think it's important for the people around him, George, to give him direct advice, to be blunt with him.

Later Sunday, Trump's national security adviser H.R. McMaster - who has been on the receiving end of criticism from Breitbart and Bannon allies - repeatedly deflected questions on NBC's Meet the Pressabout whether he could work with Bannon in the White House.
