Speaking with ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos this morning, 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".

Trump has come under intense criticism for his response to clashes between white nationalist groups ― including members of neo-Nazi and KKK groups ― and counter-protesters, which came to a head Saturday when a 20-year-old OH man allegedly plowed his vehicle into a group of anti-racist demonstrators, killing a 32-year-old woman and injuring at least 19 others.

"I think there are elements inside of Washington, also inclusive in the White House, that are not necessarily abetting the president's interests or his agenda".

Sources told Axios that West Wing staff believe Bannon was behind leaks about National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and that Bannon's job could be in danger. In remarks later Saturday afternoon, he called the clashes an "egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides". "It's actually terrorism and whether it's domestic or worldwide terrorism, with the moral authority of the presidency, you have to call that stuff out", Scaramucci in the air of ABC.

Scaramucci said during the interview that he accepts that what he did was wrong, but emphasized that people need to move on and focus on the president's agenda.

I think people are probably reluctant to tell him the truth.

He said that some of the turbulence of Trump's first six months is because "the president is not a representative of political establishment class, and for whatever reason people want to eject him". I think at the end of the day; the president knows who the leakers are.

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

Scaramucci served in the White House role for only about 10 days.
