Like many others, Scaramucci told host George Stephanopoulos that he disagreed with Trump's weak and freaky statement on the outbreak of white supremacist violence over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia.
That's what former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci had to say about how President Trump handled his response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday.
Scaramucci spoke to ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on ABC News' "This Week" today in his first television interview since his whirlwind 11-day stint in the White House.
"The President said very strongly in his statement yesterday that he condemns all forms of violence, bigotry and hatred and of course that includes white Supremacists, KKK, neo-Nazi and all extremist groups".
Studies have revealed the President's path to victory a year ago was paved in the most part by four groups, including free marketeers, anti-elites, American preservationists, and staunch conservatives.
Scaramucci wasn't the only figure in Trump's orbit attempting to put distance between the president and the highly controversial adviser.
"He likes doing the opposite of what the media thinks he's going to do".
"I wouldn't have recommended that statement", Scaramucci told ABC's "This Week" with George Stephanopoulos.
He said there are "elements" within the White House trying to eject Mr Trump.
Four killed in shooting at Moscow court
The group got its name after the violent computer game, as it was accused of murdering drivers on roads near the Russian capital. At least three people have been killed and two wounded in a shootout at a court in Moscow , Russian news agencies said.
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".
He closed: "I think the president knows what he's going to do with Steve Bannon".
"Listen, there's probably mutual disappointment on both sides, again I have to be accountable for what I did and I am", he said.
"He's got to move more to the mainstream", Scaramucci said.
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.
He added that it's not serving the President's interests to still have that wing around.
The White House did not immediately respond to CNNMoney's request for comment about Scaramucci's remarks.
