Anthony Scaramucci warns that Trump will turn on nation

Anthony Scaramucci warns that Trump will turn on nation

As a descendent of Italian immigrants, Scaramucci has said the highly controversial comments went against American values.

Scaramucci, a former administration insider who fought with the president on Twitter Saturday night, said Trump is "dissembling a little bit and he's sounding more and more nonsensical", which is "fracturing the institutions and all of the things the country stands for".

Although Scaramucci donated significantly to Trump's 2016 campaign and served for a short period as White House director of communications, he has become increasingly critical of the president in the past month. "Eventually he turns on everyone and soon it will be you and then the entire country".

"Sound and reasonably minded men and women in the Republican party will say wait a minute, we can't do this".

On Monday, Scaramucci was asked by CNN whether he was "no longer an active supporter of President Trump and his re-election bid?"

Touting his accomplishments in office, Trump said he made Scaramucci's career: "Anthony, who would do anything to come back in, should remember the only reason he is on TV, and it's not for being the Mooch!"


In the interview, Scaramucci, who worked under Trump for 11 days before being fired, called last week "arguably one of the worst" of this presidency.

Last week, Scaramucci argued Trump's recent trip to El Paso, Texas and Dayon, Ohio, to meet with survivors of last weekend's back-to-back mass shootings fell short.

Scaramucci also appeared to want to make amends for supporting Trump. I tried to see [the] best in [Donald Trump] based on private interactions and select policy alignment.

In an interview with Axios on Sunday, the financier nicknamed "the Mooch", compared the president's performance in the White House to the most notorious nuclear disaster in modern history and issued a stark warning for his former boss.

"You have to consider a change at the top of the ticket when someone is acting like this", Scaramucci said during an appearance Monday on CNN's "New Day". "And, you know, we're sort anesthetized to it", he added, referring to the President's rhetoric and behavior.
