Anthony Scaramucci No Longer Supports Trump; Calls for Change in GOP Ticket

Anthony Scaramucci No Longer Supports Trump; Calls for Change in GOP Ticket

Over the weekend, Trump attacked the former administration official in a couple of Saturday tweets, pointing out that Scaramucci was sacked after a very brief tenure as communications director.

"I'm a Republican, so I'm not switching parties to support a Democrat".

Scaramucci made the remark after Mr. Trump attacked the former White House official saying he knew "very little about me".

Trump said: "Anthony Scaramucci, who was quickly terminated (11 days) from a position that he was totally incapable of handling, now seems to do nothing but television as the all-time expert on "President Trump".

"I think what will end up happening is sound and reasonably minded men and women in the Republican Party will say, 'Wait a minute, we can't do this.' He is giving people a license to hate, to provide a source of anger to go after each other, and he does it on his Twitter account".

The Skybridge Capital LLC, co-founder told Axios on Sunday that he might back a challenge to Trump, who he compared to a melting down nuclear reactor.

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.

Trump, who is at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, did not immediately respond on Monday. This is all so self-serving on his part and the media plays right into it. "It's embarrassing to watch".

In a statement, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said Scaramucci, "worked at the White House for less than two weeks and is certainly no expert on this president".

A Trump campaign staffer defended the president on Fox News Monday for tweets blaming Jeffrey Epstein's death on the Bill and Hillary Clinton. But that door has now closed.

Presidential hopeful Robert Francis O'Rourke ("Beto") said it's "really hard" not to view supporters of President Donald Trump as racist, claiming they buy into the "white supremacist" rhetoric the president uses. So I didn't pass the 100% litmus test. "Eventually he turns on everyone and soon it will be you and then the entire country". He tweeted: "To those asking, 'What took so long?' You're right".

During the interview, he predicted that the Republican Party as a whole will eventually follow suit.

"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".
