Scaramucci Says Plotters Seeking to 'Eject' President Trump

'This is the face of fascism': Bush ethics czar blames Trump's far-right staffers for Charlottesville riot

"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", Scaramucci said in the air of ABC News.

"It could be an America of yesteryear", said Scaramucci, again seemingly unaware of Breitbart News' coverage from Charlottesville.

In what is being considered a dodge of the question of whether he can work with White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster refused to single out Bannon - or even mention him by name - in an appearance Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press".

He continued: "He's got to move more into the mainstream, he's got to be more into where the moderates are and the independents are that love the president".

"Is Steve Bannon a white nationalist, a white supremacist?" he asked.

"If the president really wants to execute the legislative agenda that I think is so promising for the American people, the lower middle-class people and the middle-class people, then he has to move away from that "Bannon-bart" nonsense", he said.

"I think he's also of the impression that there is hatred on all sides", he said. And so if he does that, he'll have a very successful legislative agenda that he'll be able to execute.

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.

Keita was one of RB Leipzig's key players a season ago as the newly promoted club qualified for the Champions League . Naby Keita made 123 defensive actions in the Bundesliga last season.

Scaramucci said he spoke with the president "this week" and that the two "had a very candid conversation".

"I think the President knows what he's going to do with Steve Bannon", Scaramucci said.

STEPHANOPOULOS: You mean Bannon and Breitbart? "And if he doesn't do that, you're going to see inertia and you're going to see this resistance from more of the establishment senators that he needs to curry favour with".

"I didn't say I didn't do the wrong thing", Scaramucci said".

According to the report, Trump has been "irritated" with Bannon following a series of Breitbart reports targeting McMaster. It's not serving the president's interests.

Like many others, Scaramucci told host George Stephanopoulos that he disagreed with Trump's weak and freakish statement on the outbreak of white supremacist violence over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Trump added: "Steve is a good guy, but I told them to straighten it out or I will".
