"I've never sat down with Steve Bannon and said, 'Hey, are you a white nationalist or a white supremacist?' But I think the toleration of it by Steve Bannon is inexcusable", Scaramucci said.

Trump on Saturday said "many sides" were responsible for the violence in Virginia.

President Trump's former communications director Anthony Scaramucci said Sunday that Trump adviser Steve Bannon's influence in the White House is hurting Trump's legislative agenda.

Anthony Scaramucci returned Sunday to the national spotlight and defended the circumstances behind his ouster last month after only 10 days as White House communications director while suggesting West Wing rival Steve Bannon may also be on his way out. When asked why he didn't, Scaramucci noted that Trump "likes doing the opposite of what the media thinks he's gonna do" and is "also of the impression that there is hatred on all sides, but I disagree with him".

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

Another Republican, Senator Lindsey Graham, told Fox News Sunday that "I would urge the president to dissuade these groups that he's their friend".

One such example includes Bannon's extensive cooperation with Josh Green a reporter for Bloomberg Businessweek as he wrote his book titled Devil's Bargain. The cover showed Bannon sharing equal billing with Trump

Nevertheless, Scaramucci also indicated that this White House faces broader problems than a single adviser. "I think he needed to be much harsher as it related to the white supremacists and the nature of that, I applaud Gen. McMaster for calling it out for what it is - it's actually terrorism".

"You're not going change the president", Scaramucci said.

Scaramucci insisted he was unaware the interview was being recorded and hit out at The New Yorker journalist Ryan Lizza after the interview was published, taking to Twitter to describe Lizza as the "Linda Tripp of 2017" and insisting "He absolutely taped the call without my permission", adding #lowlife.

"There should be no place in society for racism, white supremacy, and neo-Nazis", she tweeted. Duke took part in Saturday's rally.

"We're going to work on civility and listening, deliberation, First Amendment, religious toleration, pluralism". "It has to stop now".
