Scaramucci says Trump 'needed to be much harsher' on white supremacists

'Well, I wouldn't have recommended that statement'. I think he needed to be much harsher as it related to the white supremacists.

I applaud General McMaster for calling it out for what it is.

Mr Scaramucci criticised the influence of Mr Bannon and his right-wing Breitbart News website, suggesting the President needed to move more toward the mainstream and moderates in order to push through "a very successful legislative agenda".

When asked by Stephanopoulos if that influence stemmed from Bannon, Scaramucci said, "I think the president knows what he's going to do with Steve Bannon". "If the president really wants to execute that legislative agenda that I think is so promising for the American people". And he insisted that Trump has to "move away from that sort of "Bannonbart" nonsense".

Scaramucci has been a vocal critic of Bannon and offered a cryptic response when asked if Bannon should go.

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. "The president has a very good idea of the people who are undermining his agenda, that are serving their own interests", Scaramucci added.

"I don't think you're going to change the president", Scaramucci said.

A driver plowed into demonstrators protesting against white supremacists in Charlottesville, killing a young woman and injuring almost 20 others. Republicans and Democrats immediately criticized Trump's lackluster condemnation.

Earlier in the interview, host Chuck Todd asked what was "going on" between him and Bannon.

"We must all come together as Americans - and be one country UNITED".

He spoke to ABC News for the first time since being sacked last month - after just 10 days in office.

The comments come as a source inside the White House tells CNN that White House chief of staff John Kelly has soured on Bannon, a political operative with deep ties to the "alt-right" and the former head of the conservative news site Breitbart.

He said he believed the call was "off the record" and that it was "a very deceitful thing" for Lizza to record the call. "I want to be totally accountable for what I did, and obviously I paid the consequences of having that sort of conversation with him".

Flowers surround a photo of 32-year-old Heather Heyer, who was killed when a auto plowed into a crowd of people protesting against the white supremacist Unite the Right rally, August 13, 2017 in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Studies have revealed the President's path to victory previous year was paved in the most part by four groups, including free marketeers, anti-elites, American preservationists, and staunch conservatives.
