Scaramucci: Bannon's 'toleration' of white nationalism is 'inexcusable'

Scaramucci: Bannon's 'toleration' of white nationalism is 'inexcusable'

The Trump White House reportedly received another, "Thanks, but no thanks" response from a high-profile player who has passed on a senior administration position. "I think the president knows what he's going to do with Steve Bannon".

Trump "has got to go more to the mainstream", Scaramucci said.

Scaramucci would not elaborate but said he spoke this week with President Donald Trump.

"I think he needed to be much harsher as it related to the white supremacists and the nature of that", Scaramucci said on ABC News' "This Week".

Targa Resources, Inc. (NYSE:TRGP) Upgraded by Wells Fargo & Company to "Outperform"
Whereas, in last 21 trading days (one month) was surged 2.28% and moved down in last 63 trading days (quarter) of -11.81%. Another trade for 7,500 shares valued at $434,046 was made by CRISP CHARLES R on Wednesday, February 22.


Scaramucci decried what he called the "Bannon-Bart" influence at the White House, labelling it "nonsense". It's his decision. But I mean, at the end of the day, I think the president has a very good idea of who the leakers are inside the White House.

Scaramucci was sacked soon after the New Yorker interview and as new Chief of Staff John Kelly took over.

The former communications director also addressed the expletive-laden tirade in which he referred to then-Chief of Staff Reince Priebus as a "f**king paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac", and hit out at Steve Bannon, stating "I'm not Steve Bannon".

When Kelly was sworn in, White House officials made it clear that all staff would report to Kelly.

Arsenal dealt Sanchez injury blow
They finished on fifth position in the league last season but won the FA Cup after beating Chelsea 2-1 in the final. Wenger has insisted several times that Sanchez will not be sold, although links with Manchester City continue.


Scaramucci insisted he was unaware the interview was being recorded and hit out at The New Yorker journalist Ryan Lizza after the interview was published, taking to Twitter to describe Lizza as the "Linda Tripp of 2017" and insisting "He absolutely taped the call without my permission", adding #lowlife.

"I applaud Gen. McMaster for calling it out for what it is", he said.

The White House later Sunday issued a statement saying of Trump's condemnation: "Of course that includes white supremacists, KKK, Neo-Nazi and all extremist groups".

He said that if he was still working in the White House, he would not have recommended Trump make the statement he did.
