"I wouldn't have recommended that statement," Scaramucci told ABC's George Stephanopoulos on Sunday's This Week. "I think he needed to be much harsher as it related to the white supremacists and the nature of that."
Scaramucci went on to praise National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, who had appeared earlier on the program, "for calling it out for what it is. It's actually terrorism."
When asked if anyone in the White House would say Trump made a mistake, Scaramucci replied, "I think people are probably reluctant to tell him the truth," speculating that maybe Ivanka or Jared Kushner might.
He didn't have kind things to say when it came to other members of the Trump administration, however.
"You also got this sort of Bannon-bart influence in there, which I think is a snag on the President," Scaramucci said, referring to Trump's longtime adviser Steve Bannon, a former Breitbart executive, calling the things Bannon espouses "nonsensical."

Oh please, he is only saying that for his own reputation right now.— bingading (@bingading) August 13, 2017
And still, why do we care what the mooch says— LoreleiA (@LoreleiA4) August 13, 2017
So the Mooch is still his vile spokesperson (trying to get BLOTUS out of harm's way). Today Moochie is sympathetic and Ivanka/Jared saviors?— Oust the Bad Ombre (@Koombyya) August 13, 2017
I'm sure the Mooch isn't the only one who thinks this. The White House is turning into a Hannity, Limbaugh, Savage, and Brietbart show.— Jimbo (@jimbosuff) August 14, 2017
Why is it the truth is told after trump fires these guys?— John Kanches (@TeamKanches) August 13, 2017
