Anthony Scaramucci former director of communications for President Donald Trump
30th April 2018
Anthony Scaramucci is an entrepreneur, financier, and for a short time was President Donald Trump’s Communications Director. In this in-depth interview, ‘The Mooch’ talks in detail about that tumultuous period – how he became an “accidental entrant into the political system”, put his company up for sale to serve a President whose candidacy he had previously opposed, though ultimately becoming one of his most loyal and vocal supporters; talks about his relationship with Trump, calling him the “toughest guy I’ve ever met” – arguing he will be re-elected, and bring peace with North Korea; compares the reality of life in DC as being even more brutal than House of Cards; shares his frustration with some of Trump’s actions such as his tweeting, calling for a “truce” from “both sides” in the media war; advises what Democrats need to learn if they are going to effectively oppose the President; and takes responsibility for the errors which led to his downfall – albeit arguing he “would have been fired anyway” as John Kelly “wouldn’t have allowed a guy like Scaramucci in the White House.”
