“He called for national unity and bringing all Americans together”, the spokesperson said in a statement published by ABC News.
The former White House communications director’s remarks refer to a controversial statement Trump gave Saturday condemning violence “on many sides” – rather than violence from white supremacists and neo-Nazis gathered at the rally.
Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci says there are people in Washington working to oust the President.
Scaramucci reiterated that he felt the interview with Lizza was “off the record” and it was a “very deceitful thing” that Lizza did.
A White House spokesperson clarified on Sunday the recent statement by US President Donald Trump regarding the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, and said that it included condemnation of white supremacists, media reported.
When asked if he thought he deserved to be fired, Scaramucci said, “Well, obviously I wished they would’ve given me a bar of soap and told me to wash my mouth out in the bathroom and move on”. “It’s not serving the president’s interests”.
The White House did not immediately comment on Scaramucci’s suggestion about Bannon.
He went on to criticise the influence of Steve Bannon and the Breitbart website in the Trump administration.
In Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday, white nationalists and counter-protesters clashed in riots that turned deadly, resulting in three deaths and several injuries. The rally led to clashes between the demonstrators and counterprotesters, culminating in a vehicle ramming attack, which left one person dead and over 30 injured. Instead Trump condemned the “egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides”.
DONALD Trump has been slammed by his former press chief for not condemning white supremacists at a far-right rally that left one woman dead.
