Scaramucci on Trump Charlottesville statement: The president "needed to be much harsher"

Members of white nationalists clash against a group of counter-protesters in Charlottesville Virginia U.S

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

Scaramucci said Trump "needed to be much harsher as it related to the white supremacists" in Charlottesville, Va., and needed to call out their terrorism.

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". "If the president really wants to execute that legislative agenda that I think is so promising for the American people".

He also called on Trump to distance himself from top adviser Steve Bannon, the divisive former head of Breitbart News who Scaramucci argued was pulling Trump too far to the right and was "not serving the president's interest".

Meanwhile, the White House is still without a communications director after Scaramucci's sudden departure just 11 days after he was appointed.

Studies have revealed the President's path to victory previous year was paved in the most part by four groups, including free marketeers, anti-elites, American preservationists, and staunch conservatives.

"I think there are elements inside of Washington, also inclusive in the White House, that are not necessarily abetting the President's interests or his agenda". Bannon was formerly with the alt-right Breitbart News.

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.

"He's got to move more to the mainstream", Scaramucci said.

While Trump used the word "bigotry" in his remarks, he drew criticism from members of both political parties for not specifically rebuking white nationalists or supremacists.

But I think its important for the people around him, George, to give him direct advice.

Scaramucci acknowledged to ABC that The New Yorker interview may have cost him his White House job.

On July 22nd, Scaramucci appeared on the Breitbart News Saturday radio show, declaring: "I think that one of the things that Breitbart has done has captured the spirit of what is actually going on in this country".

A phone recording between Mr Scaramucci and a journalist was then released in which the communications directly attacked then White House chief of staff Reince Priebus.

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