Anthony Scaramucci says White House 'plotters' are working to oust Donald Trump

Trump Calls John Kelly 'Chief'

Scaramucci on firing: 'What happened was sort of meant to happen'

Scaramucci, whose turn on the communications team lasted for less than two weeks, said in an interview with ABC News' This Week the president needed to get "more loyalists in" to protect his position. It was a reference to Bannon's former job running Brietbart.com, the right-wing site that has also been associated with the alt-right.

"That whole thing is nonsensical".

The White House later Sunday issued a statement saying of Trump's condemnation: "Of course that includes white supremacists, KKK, Neo-Nazi and all extremist groups". The rally led to clashes between the demonstrators and counter-protesters, culminating in a vehicle ramming attack, which left one person dead and over 30 injured. "He's a four-star from the Marines, and he carries himself like a four-star from the Marines", Trump added.

The former communications director also addressed the expletive-laden tirade in which he referred to then-Chief of Staff Reince Priebus as a "f**king paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac", and hit out at Steve Bannon, stating "I'm not Steve Bannon".

Stephanopoulos played portions of the conversation Scaramucci had with Lizza, as Scaramucci listened.

"I made an unforced error that made it easy to dismiss me", he said of the New Yorker interview.

Speaking with ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on This Week, Scaramucci criticized the influence of the website Breitbart and Steve Bannon, who was the executive chairman of Breitbart before joining the Trump campaign and later the administration, saying that there's "this sort of "Bannon-bart" influence" in the White House that he thinks "is a snag on the president".

He said that Trump had created an "opening" for corporate CEOs to "enter the system", and mentioned Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and The Walt Disney Co.'sBob Iger as corporate chieftains who have expressed an interest in politics.

"I went in there with my heart and soul", he said.
