Donald Trump and former aide Anthony Scaramucci engage in Twitter war

Donald Trump and former aide Anthony Scaramucci engage in Twitter war

The Skybridge Capital LLC, co-founder told Axios on Sunday that he might back a challenge to Trump, who he compared to a melting down nuclear reactor.

"A couple more weeks like this, and "country over party" is going to require the Republicans to replace the top of the ticket in 2020", he added, arguing that if Trump "doesn't reform his behavior, it will not just be me, but many others will be considering helping to find a replacement in 2020".

Scaramucci, who began his work in the White House on 25 July 2017 without being sworn in, quit shortly after in an expletive-laden interview to The New Yorker in which he made obscene and derogatory statements about White House officials.

As Scaramucci predicted, Trump rose to the bait. According to Bloomberg News, press secretary Stephanie Grisham was referring to Scaramucci when she said: "This is all so self-serving on his part and the media plays right into it".


"I think the President was basically asking some of the questions that we saw millions of Americans probably asking themselves, whether it be on social media or just even in their own private conversations, about the very odd circumstances around this person's death", he said.

Trump targeted Scaramucci on Twitter over the weekend, writing that he was "totally incapable" of handling the position of White House communications director.

Describing Trump's visit to an El Paso hospital in particular as a "catastrophe", Scaracmucci cited video showing the president talking about himself and his crowds as much as he did comforting survivors, first responders and medical personnel. He remained supportive and in October 2018 released a book, Trump: The Blue-Collar President.

Tweeted Scaramucci: "For the last 3 years I have fully supported this President".


"Let's face it, he's gone off the rails and so we just have to call it for what it is", he said.

"At some point the people in my party will have to look at all this stuff and stop being anesthetized to it and say 'hey, what are we doing?'"

In January this year, Scaramucci expressed support for the president, saying he probably would vote for Trump again.
