Donald Trump and former aide Anthony Scaramucci engage in Twitter war

Donald Trump and former aide Anthony Scaramucci engage in Twitter war

Anthony Scaramucci, who lasted only 11 days as Donald Trump's communications director, said he won't support the president's re-election and suggested the Republican Party consider a different 2020 nominee.

Scaramucci, who began his work in the White House on 25 July 2017 without being sworn in, quit shortly after in an expletive-laden interview to The New Yorker in which he made obscene and derogatory statements about White House officials.

In January, Scaramucci told CBSN that he probably would vote for Mr. Trump again, but argued that events could change.

Scaramucci has since told CNN that he's received a wave of support from current Trump allies, lawmakers and individuals inside the White House after standing up to the president in his public feud over social media.

Trump ripped Scaramucci over the weekend and said he was "quickly terminated (11 days) from a position that he was totally incapable of handling" and now spends his time on TV "as the all time expert on 'President Trump'".

The back-and-forth followed what Scaramucci termed "arguably one of the worst weeks" of Trump's presidency.

After Scaramucci's interview with CNN's New Day, he clarified on Twitter why he changed his stance toward President Trump.

"Anthony, who would do anything to come back in, should remember the only reason he is on TV, and it's not for being the Mooch!"

Trump didn't specify what inspired his criticism, but Scaramucci has been very critical of Trump's recent trip to El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, to meet with survivors of last weekend's mass shootings. He described the visits as a "catastrophe". "We all just have to take a step back now and say, 'What are we doing?'" he said.

"We are now in the early episodes of "Chernobyl" on HBO, where the reactor is melting down and the apparatchiks are trying to figure out whether to cover it up or start the clean-up process", Scaramucci said, continuing that the party "can't afford a full nuclear contamination site post 2020".

"Maybe he'll tweet something negative about somebody for saying he didn't do well, but the facts are he did not do well on the trip because if the trip is being made about him and not the demonstration of compassion and love and caring and empathy for those people", Scaramucci said.
