Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci fired back at Donald Trump on Sunday after the president slammed him on Twitter Saturday night.
“For the last 3 years I have fully supported this President,” Scaramucci said on Twitter. “Recently he has said things that divide the country in a way that is unacceptable. So I didn’t pass the 100% litmus test. Eventually he turns on everyone and soon it will be you and then the entire country.”
Scaramucci’s remarks come after Trump unloaded on the former White House aide over his recent comments criticizing his administration.
Scaramucci last week called Trump’s visit to El Paso Texas a “catastrophe.”
“Anthony Scaramucci, who was quickly terminated (11 days) from a position that he was totally incapable of handling, now seems to do nothing but television as the all time expert on ‘President Trump.'” Trump tweeted late Saturday night.
He added that Scaramucci “knows very little about me…other than the fact that this Administration has probably done more than any other Administration in its first 2 1/2 years of existence.”
“Anthony, who would do anything to come back in, should remember the only reason he is on TV, and it’s not for being the Mooch!” Trump said.
Scaramucci was fired from his White House job in July 2017 after a chaotic 11-day stint. In the years since, he hasn’t hesitated to criticize the administration while appearing on television talk shows.
