Scaramucci: White house plotters seeking Trump exit

Donald Trump's former communications director Anthony Scaramucci has said there are people in Washington trying to have Mr Trump removed as president.

'I wouldn't have recommended that statement, ' said Scaramucci, who held his White House position for just 10 days. "I think he would have needed to have been much harsher". "It's actually terrorism and whether it's domestic or worldwide terrorism, with the moral authority of the presidency, you have to call that stuff out", Scaramucci in the air of ABC. The power struggle between McMaster's camp and the White House's more nationalist faction, led by chief strategist Steve Bannon, was highlighted in a memo obtained by Foreign Policy.

He called Lizza's decision to record the call "a very deceitful thing that he did".

"What happened was sort of meant to happen", Scaramucci told ABC's "This Week" host George Stephanopoulos.

The former Wall Steet tycoon was pushed out following a profanity-laced phone call with New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza which he said was "mischaracterized".

He admitted that he "absolutely" made mistakes, but said he "went in there with my heart and soul".

Trump declined to condemn white supremacy in a series of tweets where he called the violence "sad!" and condemned "all that hate stands for".
