Scaramucci Says Plotters Seeking to 'Eject' President Trump

Scaramucci reiterated that he felt the interview with Lizza was "off the record" and it was a "very deceitful thing" that Lizza did.

Scaramucci said no matter who's in the White House, Trump just does what he wants, though "I think he respects bluntness and he respects candor".

When asked about Trump's reaction to the events in Charlottesville, Scaramucci said the president's words should have been "much harsher".

"He's not a racist but I think that there's no need to go in that direction when you have this phenomenal legislative agenda", Scaramucci said in a Facebook Live interview with ABC later Sunday morning. "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 favor with".

A former Wall Street financier, Mr Scaramucci was sacked from his job at the end of a chaotic 10 days which started with White House press secretary Steve Spicer resigning.

"With the moral authority of the presidency, you have to call that stuff out", Scaramucci said during an interview with ABC News.

"It's actually terrorism, and whether it's domestic or worldwide terrorism, with the moral authority of the presidency, you have to call that stuff out", Scaramucci added.

The former communications director also addressed the expletive-laden tirade in which he referred to then-Chief of Staff Reince Priebus as a "f**king paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac", and hit out at Steve Bannon, stating "I'm not Steve Bannon".

Scaramucci said the president can't be told what to do, but said those around him should "give him direct advice" and "be blunt with him".

Scaramucci had served less than two weeks in Trump's administration.

Axios reported that Bannon was getting less time with the president, but noted that he'd survived past attempts to be pushed out of Trump's inner circle. The former CEO of Breitbart News, Bannon is often credited with fanning Trump's pugilistic impulses, and boasted about his role in legitimizing the alt-right.
