Scaramucci says Trump 'needed to be much harsher' on white supremacists

SCARAMUCCI: Well, I think the president knows what he's going to do with Steve Bannon.

The comments come as a source inside the White House tells CNN that White House chief of staff John Kelly has soured on Bannon, a political operative with deep ties to the "alt-right" and the former head of the conservative news site Breitbart.

"What we focus on is coordinating and integrating efforts across the government and with our multinational partners and allies to present the president with options, options about some very serious national security challenges we face today and, and also options to take advantage of opportunities to secure the American and protect the American people and promote American prosperity".

National security adviser H.R. McMaster on Sunday dodged a question about whether he could work together with chief strategist Stephen Bannon.

Mr Scaramucci told a New Yorker reporter Mr Priebus was a "paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac" and accused him of leaking information to journalists.

"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", he added.

He added that the President needed "more loyalists" to implement his plans. "The president's going to do what he wants to do, how he wants to do it, but I think it's important for the people around him to give them direct advice, to be blunt with him".

The "Bannon-bart influence" in the White House was a "snag" on the president, he said. "I've never sat down with Steve and said 'hey are you a white nationalist or a white supremacist?' But I think the toleration of it by Steve Bannon is inexcusable".

Scaramucci - who held the top White House communications job for just 11 days - urged current administration officials to directly disagree with Trump if he's wrong, but hypothesized that the president responded in that way because he "likes doing the opposite of what the media thinks he's going to do", and he is "of the impression that there is hatred on all sides". He's got to move more to the mainstream, he's got to be more into where the moderates are and independents are, George, that love the president. It's not serving the president's interests. If he does that, he'll have a successful legislative agenda that he can execute. And so, we're on live television, and so I would prefer to let the president make the decisions that the president need to make.
