‘Curry Favor’

“He’s got to move more into the mainstream, he’s got to be more into where the moderates are and the independents are,” Scaramucci said of Trump. “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 favor with.”

The former New York financier also linked the influence of Bannon to Trump’s president’s failure to forcibly denounce white supremacists who held a rally Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia, that turned deadly.

“I wouldn’t have recommended that statement,” Scaramucci said. “He needed to be much harsher as it related to the white supremacists and the nature of that.”

Scaramucci said of his firing by new White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, “what happens was sort of meant to happen.”

“Obviously, I wish they would have given me a bar of soap and told me to go wash my mouth out in the bathroom and move on,” he said.
