Key Words: Scaramucci criticizes President Trump’s response to the violence in Charlottesville

‘Well, I wouldn’t have recommended that statement.’

That’s what former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci had to say about how President Trump handled his response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday.

“I think he needed to be much harsher as it related to the white supremacists and the nature of that,” Scaramucci added in his interview on ABC Sunday.

He’s referring to Trump’s comment following a brutal attack that left one dead and almost 20 injured at a white supremacist rally Saturday. Trump said he condemned “hatred, bigotry and violence — on many sides… on many sides.”

The “many sides” part is what drew a strong rebuke from those who believed the president needed to specifically lay blame at the feet of the “alt-right” gathering to protest the removal of a statute of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

Scaramucci tried to explain Trump’s thinking.

“He likes doing the opposite of what the media thinks he’s going to do. I think he’s also of the impression that there is hatred on all sides,” he said. “Whether I was the White House communications director or not, I don’t think you’re going change the president. The president’s going to do what he wants to do, how he wants to do it.”
