Scaramucci to Trump: Go mainstream, lose nonsense

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 auto attack that killed a 32-year-old woman and injured several more.

"McMaster was asked whether he believes Bannon does that".

"The whole thing is nonsensical".

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.

During ABC News' livestream interview after This Week, Scaramucci was asked if he believes Bannon is a white supremacist or white nationalist.

"You also got this sort of "Bannonbart" influence in there, which I think is a snag on the president", he stated.

"I am ready to work with anybody who will help advance the president's agenda and advance the security, prosperity of the American people", McMaster said. If he does that, he'll have a successful legislative agenda that he can execute.

"I think the President knows what he's going to do with Steve Bannon", Scaramucci said.

Scaramucci tried to explain Trump's thinking.

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". "And if he doesn't do that, you're going to see inertia and you're going to see this resistance from more of the establishment senators that he needs to curry favour with".

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.

"Listen, there's probably mutual disappointment on both sides, again I have to be accountable for what I did and I am", he said.

US President Donald Trump failed to condemn "domestic terrorism" in the deadly aftermath of a white nationalist protest in Charlottesville, Virginia, says former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.

"I think the president knows what he's going to do with Steve Bannon", he said, adding, "Let's leave it up to the president, it's his decision".

Rick Klein, who moderated the event, began by asking a question linking Breitbart News and Stephen K. Bannon to "white supremacy".

Trump added: "Steve is a good guy, but I told them to straighten it out or I will".
