Scaramucci: Trump Has to 'Move Away' from 'Bannon-Bart Nonsense'

Charlottesville: Ex-KKK leader David Duke slams Trump for condemning violent clashes

Marco Rubio: Donald Trump needs to clearly denounce white supremacists in Charlottesville

A reported memo about deep state attacks against President Donald Trump written by a former White House National Security Council official highlights growing friction within the White House and mounting tension between two of Trump's closest advisers.

If you were White House communications director yesterday, would you have advised he give that statement?

"I wouldn't have given that statement", Scaramucci told Stephanopoulos. 'I think he would have needed to have been much harsher as it related to the white supremacists'.

When Scaramucci served as communications director, he went on a rant about Trump administration staffers during a call with a New Yorker reporter. In remarks later Saturday afternoon, he called the clashes an "egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides". "This hate and division must stop, and it must stop now". It's actually terrorism. And whether its domestic or worldwide terrorism, with the moral authority of the presidency, you have to call that stuff out.

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

During his brief time working for the US President, Mr Scaramucci turned the White House upside down.

"Let's leave it up to the president".

Kelly faces a White House that's been plagued by leaks and controversies.

He said that some of the turbulence of Trump's first six months is because "the president is not a representative of political establishment class, and for whatever reason people want to eject him". "The president has a very good idea of the people who are undermining his agenda that are serving their own interests", Scaramucci added. I think at the end of the day; the president knows who the leakers are.
