Scaramucci: Bannon's 'toleration' of white nationalism is 'inexcusable'

Anthony Scaramucci walks back to the West Wing of the White House in Washington on July 25. If he does that, he'll have a successful legislative agenda that he can execute.

SCARAMUCCI: Yes, the whole thing is nonsensical, it's not serving the president's interests.

President Donald Trump's statement denouncing the Charlottesville, Va., violence needed to be "harsher" and the act should have been considered "terrorism", fired White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said Sunday.

Scaramucci wasn't the only figure in Trump's orbit attempting to put distance between the president and the highly controversial adviser.

Interviewer George Stephanopoulos asked him who he was referred to, but Mr Scaramucci said only that he had already "named some names". "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".

Like many others, Scaramucci told host George Stephanopoulos that he disagreed with Trump's weak and weird statement on the outbreak of white supremacist violence over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Scaramucci acknowledged that he made a mistake and was sacked for it by giving a profanity-laced interview to The New Yorker's Ryan Lizza during his short time working at the White House.

"Of course it make our life more hard ", Tillerson told reporters at the State Department when asked about the Russian action. Still, Putin's decision to do so came right after Congress voted to slap Russian Federation with more economic sanctions.

The "many sides" part is what drew a strong rebuke from those who believed the president needed to specifically lay blame at the feet of the "alt-right" gathering to protest the removal of a statute of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

In his first televised appearance since he was ousted from his White House post, Scaramucci told This Week host George Stephanopoulos that - were he still Trump's communications director - he would not have written the fiercely criticized statement Trump gave on Saturday, shortly after the vehicle attack that killed a 32-year-old woman and injured several more.

"I'm not trying to build my own brand" on the president's coattails", he added.

Republicans and Democrats immediately criticized Trump's lackluster condemnation.

"Well, obviously, I wish they would give me a bar of soap and tell me to go wash my mouth out in the bathroom and move on", Scaramucci said during the ABC interview.

The White House did not immediately respond to CNNMoney's request for comment about Scaramucci's remarks.

"Can you and Steve Bannon still work together", Todd asked.
