Scaramucci says people in the White House 'want to eject' Trump

The author of the memo Rich Higgins who was in the strategic planning office at the NSC was among those recently pushed out

And he added that he wanted to see the president move away from the likes of Mr Bannon towards the mainstream to bring in more moderates.

Anthony Scaramucci sat down Sunday morning for his first interview since his chaotic and brief stint with the Trump administration. "You have to call that stuff out".

"He made a choice in his presidential campaign, the folks around him, to go to the gutter, to play on our worst prejudices", Signer, a Democrat, said.

Trump's response was criticized by politicians on both sides of the aisle for failing to name white supremacist or alt-right groups involved in the protests.

"I think that there are elements inside of Washington, also inclusive in the White House, that are not necessarily abetting the president's interests or his agenda", the Manhasset financier told ABC News' "This Week".

"You also got this sort of Bannon-bart influence in there, which I think is a snag on the president", Scaramucci said. "I wouldn't have recommended that statement", Trump's one-time communications director told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos "I think he would have needed to have been much harsher".

The former White House communications director's remarks refer to a controversial statement Trump gave Saturday condemning violence "on many sides" - rather than violence from white supremacists and neo-Nazis gathered at the rally.

Mr Scaramucci said he had thought the interview was off the record. So, if he does that, he'll have a very successful legislative agenda that he'll be able to execute.

"I get to work together with a broad range of talented people and it is a privilege every day to enable the national security team", McMaster said, an answer he regurgitated three times as Todd continued to press him on his views of Bannon.

Scaramucci's frustration with Bannon was put on full display last month after New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza published an article detailing an expletive-laced phone conversation he had with Scaramucci. "I think the president knows what he's going to do".
