Anthony Scaramucci: President Trump Should Have Called the Charlottesville Rally Terrorism

The former White House communications director's remarks refer to a controversial statement Trump gave Saturday condemning violence "on many sides" - rather than violence from white supremacists and neo-Nazis gathered at the rally.

Breitbart has close ties with the alt-right movement, an ideology that can be associated with white nationalism.

Scaramucci, who was sacked after a vulgar recording of him slamming Bannon was published by The New Yorker, would not say whether the President will fire Bannon, but did say that he spoke with Trump this week.

But, according to Axios, Bannon's alleged reluctance to stop the stories is raising eyebrows, given Bannon's history of intervening with Breitbart to influence stories in a positive fashion for the Trump administration. 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.

If you're exhausted of the Scaramucci show, the grown-ups in the White House are fanning out across various programs today to address the North Korean nuclear threat and the prospect of war.

The former White House communications chief lauded Trump's national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, who had told ABC the events in Charlottesville were "a criminal act against fellow Americans", calling it "terrorism".

Scaramucci tried to explain Trump's thinking.

"But you also have this Bannon- b art influence in there which I think is a snag on the president, " he said.

Vanita Gupta, the Leadership Conference's president and CEO, said on a conference call with reporters to discuss her group's demands that supporters of white supremacists "should not serve in the White House or in any level of government". He said that he thinks "the president knows what he is going to do with Steve Bannon", adding that Trump "has an idea of who the leakers are".

Scaramucci said he spoke with the president "this week" and that the two "had a very candid conversation". "The President has a very good idea of the people that are undermining his agenda that are serving their own interests".

"It was going to be very hard for me to stay in the job, given the fact the Gen. Kelly took over and so I respect Gen. Kelly", he added.

"I don't know" replied the diminutive ex Comms chief.

Scaramucci called himself a "front stabber", in that he is willing to tell people unpleasant things to their face.

"I wouldn't have recommended that statement", Scaramucci told George Stephanopoulos.

"I condemn white supremacists and racists and white Nazi groups and all the other groups that espouse this kind of hatred", Bossert also said when pressed on the President's position towards the white supremacists.
