Trump "has got to go more to the mainstream", Scaramucci said.

The Trump White House reportedly received another, "Thanks, but no thanks" response from a high-profile player who has passed on a senior administration position.

Scaramucci said as White House communications director he "wouldn't have recommended" the statement Trump gave, and applauded National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster's characterization of the violence as terrorism.

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".

"I think he would have needed to have been much harsher".

"The odds were stacked against me in that job", Scaramucci told ABC News, adding that the president wanted him in the post but "probably 200" others did not.

Responding to questions about whether Trump should have spoken out against white supremacists after a rally in Charlottesville turned violent on Saturday, Scaramucci was critical of the President.

When asked by Stephanopoulos if that influence stemmed from Bannon, Scaramucci said, "I think the president knows what he's going to do with Steve Bannon".

"He has to move away from that sort of "Bannon-bart" nonsense", Scaramucci said, apparently combining Bannon's name with Breitbart, the website that Bannon ran before joining Trump's campaign past year. It's not serving the president's interests. It's his decision. But I mean, at the end of the day, I think the president has a very good idea of who the leakers are inside the White House.

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".
