Donald Trump’s former communications director and at one time close pal Anthony Scaramucci attacked him on Twitter over the weekend. In his attack, he gave a grave warning tweeting that Donald Trump will eventually “turn” on the “entire country.”
Scaramucci’s attack came after Trump lashed out at him on Twitter earlier for his criticism of him. Scaramucci served as Trump’s White House communications director for less than two weeks in 2017.
Scaramucci also called Trump out for his racist rhetoric that he used towards four freshman congresswomen of color. He called his statements “racist and unacceptable.”
During an interview with BBC’s Today Scaramucci said. “I don’t think the president is a racist. But here’s the thing, if you continue to say and act in that manner, then we all have to look at him and say, OK, well, maybe you weren’t a racist, but now you’re turning into one.”
Scaramucci stated in a recent interview that Trump’s self-centered appearances in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio were a “catastrophe.”
In his tweet, Trump mocked Scaramucci for pretending to be an “all-time expert on President Trump,” adding that “he knows very little about me.” He said Scaramucci would “do anything” to “come back in” to the White House.
Scaramucci immediately fired back stating that he wasn’t surprised that Trump turned on him. “Eventually he turns on everyone and soon it will be you and then the entire country,” he tweeted.
“For the last 3 years, I have fully supported this President. Recently he has said things that divide the country in a way that is unacceptable. So I didn’t make the 100% litmus test. Eventually, he turns on everyone and soon it will be you and then the entire country,” he tweeted.
Scaramucci was ousted from his position of communications director in July 2017 after a chaotic 11-day stint. He has repeatedly criticized Trump and his administration since his departure while appearing on news and talk shows.
“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, then it becomes a catastrophe for him, the administration, and it’s also a bad reflection on the country,” Scaramucci said on MSNBC on Thursday.
