"I think [Trump] needed to be much harsher as it related to white supremacists".

"I've never sat down with Steve Bannon and said, 'Hey are you a white nationalist or a white supremacist?' But I think the toleration of it by Steve Bannon is inexcusable".

Responding to questions about whether Trump should have spoken out against white supremacists after a rally in Charlottesville turned violent on Saturday, Scaramucci was critical of the President. The New Yorker's Ryan Lizza published an expletive-filled interview with Scaramucci, in which he bashed then-chief of staff Reince Priebus and used a sexually-vulgar term to describe Bannon.

The interview with Stephanopoulos was Scaramucci's first since he was sacked 11 days into his White House job.

Establishment Republican lawyer Richard Painter also chimed in on MSNBC, demanding that not only should Bannon go, but Sebastian Gorka, another prominent rightist within the administration, should also be fired, repeatedly calling them "neofascists".

Channelling Hillary Clinton's "deplorables" moment - attempting to force link between racialism and Breitbart News - Scaramucci continued: "Steve Bannon is a great speechwriter".

Gen. H.R. McMaster was asked by ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on ABC News' This Week on Sunday whether the car-ramming following a white nationalist gathering in the Virginia city was domestic terrorism. "The president's going to do what he wants to do, how he wants to do it".

McMaster, Trump's national security advisor, also appeared on the show and did not mince words when he said, "Any time that you commit an attack against people to incite fear, it is terrorism".

'Maybe Ivanka would do that. maybe Jared would do that, but you've also got this sort of Bannon-bart influence in there, which I think is a snag on the president, ' Scaramucci said, mushing together Bannon's name with the publication, Breitbart, which the White House aide formerly ran.

"I am ready to work with anybody who will help advance the president's agenda and advance the security, prosperity of the American people", McMaster said. That was the first day on the job of new White House chief of staff, John Kelly.

'The whole thing is nonsensical. At the very least, the Chief Strategist had been able to speak nearly directly to the Alt-Right community in going after McMaster on social and nationalist media circles influencing the idea that President Trump fire McMaster.

He said that if he was still working in the White House, he would not have recommended Trump make the statement he did.
