Scaramucci said no matter who's in the White House, Trump just does what he wants, though "I think he respects bluntness and he respects candor".

National security adviser H.R. McMaster was asked three times by NBC's Chuck Todd on Sunday whether he can work with Bannon in the White House.

"The whole thing is nonsensical", Scaramucci said.

White House Senior Adviser Steve Bannon attends a round table discussion held by U.S. President Donald Trump in MI on March 15. He has got to move more to the mainstream He has to be where the moderates and independents are that love the president.

At the end of the interview, Todd repeatedly asked McMaster if he could work together with Bannon, but McMaster wouldn't answer.

"The fact that [Steve Bannon] is sitting there inside the White House probably makes people think that [Breitbart] has an influence, and I think that's reason enough to probably make some changes".

"I wouldn't have recommended that statement", Scaramucci said of Trump's reaction to the event in a statement made on Saturday from Bedminster, New Jersey. And if he does that, he'll have a very successful legislative agenda that he'll be able to execute.

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci said Sunday that President Donald Trump should have been "much harsher" in his reaction to the deadly violence at a white nationalist rally in Virginia - and continued to criticize strategist Steve Bannon during his first TV interview since his abrupt ouster last month. "I'm not trying to build my own brand" on the president's coattails", he added. And if he doesn't do that, you're going to see this inertia and you're going to see this resistance from more of the establishment senators that he needs to curry favor with.

"I like Steve, but you have to remember he was not involved in my campaign until very late", Trump told the New York Post in April.

Scaramucci said he didn't know and hasn't directly asked Bannon about his views.

Axios reported Saturday that Bannon has entered President Donald Trump's doghouse and that top officials believe he's part of leaks meant to target McMaster.

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