Scaramucci Says Plotters Seeking to 'Eject' President Trump

Scaramucci Says Plotters Seeking to 'Eject' President Trump

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

"I've never sat down with Steve and said 'hey are you a white nationalist or a white supremacist?' But I think the toleration of it by Steve Bannon is inexcusable".

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

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.

When Stephanopoulos asked if there was anyone in the White House who would tell Trump the statement had been a mistake, Scaramucci noted that most of Trump's staff "may be reluctant to tell him the truth".

"I am ready to work with anybody to help advance the president's agenda and advance the security, prosperity of the American people", McMaster responded.

Asked if he believed "Bannonbart" had an influence on President Trump's thinking, Scaramucci replied: "I would say no".

"I get to work together with a broad range of talented people and it is a privilege every day to enable the national security team", he said.

Bannon's ouster has been rumored in the past, with tension in the White House spilling out in public on an nearly weekly basis.

"The whole thing is nonsensical", he added.

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". And if he does that, he'll have a very successful legislative agenda that he'll be able to execute.

Scaramucci tried to explain Trump's thinking. A photograph shows Fields standing among members of Vanguard America, a group associated with the white supremacy movement, although the organization has denied that he's a member. "If he doesn't do that, you'll see inertia".

"The president has a very good idea of who the leakers are inside the White House".

However, he said the president needed to bring in "more loyalists" in order to carry out his agenda. On Saturday, the president had blamed "many sides".

Scaramucci's appearance on "This Week" was his first major public interview since being fired last month after launching into a profanity-laced rant on a call with New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza.

"I like Steve, but you have to remember he was not involved in my campaign until very late", Trump told the New York Post in April. The president is going to do what he wants to do, how he wants to do it.
