White House figures plotting against Donald Trump: Scaramucci

"I think he needed to be much harsher as it related to the white supremacists and the nature of that", Scaramucci told George Stephanopoulos, referring to his former boss's broad and vague condemnation of hatred and violence.

Asked if that included Bannon, Scaramucci said, "Well, yeah".

He said he believed the call was "off the record" and that it was "a very deceitful thing" for Lizza to record the call.

Earlier in the day Axios.com portal reported, citing sources close to the president, that US President Donald Trump allegedly suspected that his Chief Strategist Steve Bannon was the one behind the leaks about the latter's White House colleagues.

At the end of the interview, Todd repeatedly asked McMaster if he could work together with Bannon, but McMaster wouldn't answer.

"If the President really wants to execute that legislative agenda that I think is so promising for the American people. then he has to move away from that sort of Bannon-bart nonsense", Scaramucci said, using a portmanteau of Bannon and Breitbart, the outlet Bannon once said was a "platform for the alt-right". And so if he does that, he'll have a very successful legislative agenda that he'll be able to execute. But you also got this sort of "Bannonbart" influence in there, which I think is a snag on the president. "I'm not trying to build my own brand" on the president's coattails", he added.

'I Think I Can Get Probation.' Martin Shkreli Unshaken After Fraud Conviction
But Shkreli was acquitted of that charge, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, which Brafman referred to as "the money count". Prosecutors contended he told investors " lies upon lies " during his scheme, although investors ultimately made money .

Anthony Scaramucci was sacked as White House communications director after 10 days.

"He likes doing the opposite of what the media thinks he's going to do", Scaramucci said.

ABC's Klein again attempted to link Steve Bannon with white nationalism, despite Breitbart News' internal, effortless diversity.

"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 a year ago. And if he doesn't do that, you're going to see this inertia and you're going to see this resistance from more of the establishment senators that he needs to curry favor with.

Ousted White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci criticised President Donald Trump's unwillingness to single out white nationalist and white supremacy groups in addressing the violence that erupted Saturday in Charlottesville. The chilling came as Bannon fought with Jared Kushner, a top Trump aide and the President's son-in-law. I'm accountable for the mistake.
