Donald Trump’s axed communications chief Anthony Scaramucci has sensationally said people inside the White House are working to ‘eject’ the President.
Speaking to ABC News for the first time after being sacked just 10 days into the job, The Mooch, as he likes to call himself, said there were ‘elements’ plotting the President’s exit.
He said: ‘The president is not a representative of the political establishment class, so for whatever reason the people have made a decision that they want to eject him.
‘I think there are elements inside of Washington, also inclusive in the White House, that are not necessarily abetting the president’s interests or his agenda.’
It follows the release of a profanity-laden phone recording with The New Yorker, which saw The Mooch take aim at former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon, Donald Trump’s Chief Strategist.
When quizzed by ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos about Bannon, Scaramucci said: ‘I think the President knows what he’s going to do with Steve Bannon.
The Mooch continued: ‘I think the President has a very good idea of who the leakers are inside the White House.
‘The President has a very good idea of the people who are undermining his agenda that are serving their own interests.’
Scaramucci also had harsh words for the President’s reaction to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.
This is what Donald Trump said in the aftermath of the attack that killed one woman and injured 19: ‘We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides. On many sides.
‘It’s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. This has been going on for a long, long time.’
Scaramucci said he ‘wouldn’t have recommended’ the President’s statement.
He said: ‘I think he would have needed to have been much harsher.
‘With the moral authority of the presidency, you have to call that stuff out.’
