Scaramucci says he's done supporting Trump

Scaramucci says he's done supporting Trump

When CNN's John Berman asked point-blank if he is no longer supporting Trump as president, Scaramucci said, "Yeah, I think that's pretty obvious from over the weekend".

Scaramucci, who served as White House communications director for just 11 days, suggested the president will one day "turn" on those he claims to be fighting for. He said Scaramucci would "do anything" to "come back in" to the White House. "Like many other so-called television experts, he knows very little about me other than the fact that this Administration has probably done more than any other Administration in its first 2 1/2 years of existence". "And we're sort of anesthetized to it and people inside of Washington: 'Oh yeah, that's just President Trump, just let him act like that.' But, you know, you're fracturing the institutions and all of the things that the country stands for", he said.

Trump didn't specify what inspired his criticism, but Scaramucci has been very critical of Trump's recent trip to El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, to meet with survivors of last weekend's mass shootings. This is all so self-serving on his part and the media plays right into it.

On Monday, Scaramucci also cited Trump's combative tactics on Twitter. "It's embarrassing to watch". So I didn't pass the 100% litmus test.

Marc Lotter, a communications staffer for the Trump campaign, was asked on Fox News about President Donald Trump retweeting posts that blamed the Clintons for the death of the financier, who died by an apparent suicide in his jail cell where he was awaiting trial for the sex trafficking of minors. Scaramucci has been a major donor to Republican candidates, including Trump in 2016. "But his increasingly divisive rhetoric - and damage it's doing to fabric of our society - outweighs any short-term economic gain".

"I think you have to consider a change at the top of the ticket when someone is acting like this". But Castro's public naming of his own constituents, some of whom are older and retired or describe themselves as homemakers, was met with backlash from Trump, his campaign, Republican leaders, and even some on the left, who warned that the Texas Democrat was using his platform as a powerful lawmaker to target private citizens at a combustible moment in USA politics.
