Anthony Scaramucci: Trump Should Have Been 'Much Harsher' On White Supremacists

Members of the'deep state attacked the Trump administration because the President represents a threat to cultural Marxist memes
Sunday on ABC's "This Week", while discussing President Donald Trump's statement on the violence Saturday at a Charlottesville protest, former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said President Donald Trump needed to "move away" from the "Bannon-Bart influence", referring to Breitbart News Network and White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon.
George Stephanopoulos asked him if he would have okayed that statement if he was still the White House Communications Director. The president has been criticized for not specifically calling out the white supremacists and neo-Nazi groups at Saturday's rally. One woman died after a vehicle rammed into a crowd of protesters and dozens of people were injured; the driver was charged with second-degree murder and other counts.
Trump has long decried leaks of sensitive information to media, such as specifics of his Oval Office conversations with world leaders earlier this year, as well as details surrounding the palace intrigue around the White House. Bannon was formerly the executive chairman of Brietbart.
Trump "has got to go more to the mainstream", Scaramucci said.
Scaramucci was sacked after just 11 days on the job.
Expect McMaster et al.to also be pressed on the "military option" for Venezuela, which the president laid on the table on Friday because, I guess, sounding "tough" is its own reward.
But he acknowledged that he "made an unforced error", and said that he was a target from the start.
"If you are on the McMaster side, you do not like this memo because you read it and you say, 'Hey is he talking about me?" Furthermore, Trump's advisers are "reluctant to tell him the truth", he said. But to Scaramucci ― a Wall Street financier who served less than two weeks in his White House post last month ― the president's response was textbook Trump.
