"I think he needed to be much harsher as it related to the white supremacists and the nature of that", Scaramucci said during an interview Sunday on ABC's "This Week".

Scaramucci also failed to elaborate on these "moderates and independents", who he claimed would support the President's legislative agenda if the "micro Bannonbart" group was ostracised.

Scaramucci, who was sacked by President Trump after just over a week in the White House, called the Steve Bannon influence on the administration a "snag" for the president with respect to his legislative agenda.

"What happens in the president is not a representative of the political establishment class, so for whatever reason the people have made a decision that they want to eject him", Mr Scaramucci said.

He continued: "The whole thing is nonsensical. If he doesn't do that, you'll see inertia".

"He's got to move more to the mainstream", Scaramucci said. Late-night comedians spoofed Scaramucci, and Bill Hader played him on a prime-time version of "Saturday Night Live: Weekend Update" last week.

On ABC's This Week, Scaramucci expressed dismay over the hold that someone like chief strategist Steve Bannon, as well as Bannon's former home of Breitbart News, has over Trump. "If the president really wants to execute that legislative agenda that I think is so promising for the American people".

He added that it's not serving the President's interests to still have that wing around.

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci said Sunday he believed there were people in the United States administration seeking to "eject" President Donald Trump as he does not belong to the political establishment class.

Republicans and Democrats immediately criticized Trump's lackluster condemnation. On Saturday, the president had blamed "many sides".

The White House did not immediately respond to CNNMoney's request for comment about Scaramucci's remarks. But Scaramucci said he thought the interview with reporter Ryan Lizza was off the record.

"Can you and Steve Bannon still work together in this White House or not?"

Scaramucci complained that what Lizza did was "very deceitful" while also taking responsibility.

The controversial ex-White House figure asserted Sunday that he "wouldn't have recommended that statement".
