Key member of Trump's diversity council wants Bannon fired

  • 5 Awkward Moments From Stephen Colbert's Interview With Anthony Scaramucci!

After the taping, Scaramucci posted on Twitter that he "went into the lion's den" but only "came out with a few scratches" and was "still standing", adding, "I appreciated the (opportunity)". "But it's not up to me".

A member of President Trump's diversity council called on White House chief strategist Steve Bannon to resign Tuesday following the president's belated denunciation of white nationalist groups for violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Throughout the interview, Scaramucci seemed arrogantly unaware of how severely his reputation has been tarnished and Colbert provided little sympathy, opting instead to challenge Scaramucci's opinion that the White House is anything other than a total "dumpster fire".

Later in the night, Colbert welcomed Scaramucci, who defended the president, despite having been recently ousted from the administration.

Trump returned to a White House undergoing a major renovation.

"Let's be fair to him today, though", Scaracmucci said of President Trump's most recent comments on Charlottesville.

Pence: 'No tolerance' for white supremacists and fringe groups
Pence will be in Argentina Tuesday for talks with President Mauricio Macri , and will later stop in Chile and Panama. The United States is Argentina's third largest trade partner after Brazil and China.

On Steve Bannon's role: "I've said that [I think he's a leaker]". "The weird thing about my relationship with Reince is we were actually pretty good friends when I was a political donor writing checks to the RNC, but once I became part of the administration ... it was a little more adversarial".

Mr. Trump's initial statement following the weekend's violent clashes and subsequent vehicle attack placed blame for the violence on "many sides", drawing immediate backlash for not explicitly condemning white supremacists and hate other groups.

Asked again, McMaster said, "I am ready to work anybody who will help advance the President's agenda and advance the security, prosperity of the American people".

As for the president, Trump made a "huge sacrifice to do this stuff", giving up "what was a luxurious lifestyle", Scaramucci said. But Donald Trump sure likes to skirt around the issue.

When asked if Bannon should be the next White House staffer to exit the West Wing, Scaramucci told Stephanopoulos, "I think the president has a very good idea of who the leakers are inside the White House".

Jose Mourinho confirms talks over Zlatan Ibrahimovic's Man United return
The former Sweden striker was United's top scorer last season, hitting 28 goals as they won the Europa League, the League Cup and the Community Shield.

There's an ideological dimension to this as well: Bannon's hard-right, nationalist economic perspective and his reluctance to engage or expand military operations makes him clash with comparatively more moderate voices in the White House. "What I don't like is the toleration of it".

On his very short time working for Trump and whether he felt "burned": "Not at all".

LMAO. Mooch revealed, "When you take a job like that you know your expiration date is coming".

He continued, "If it were up to me, [Bannon] would be gone". "I didnt think I would last too long, but I thought I'd last longer than a carton of milk", Scaramucci joked.
