Anthony Scaramucci No Longer Supports Trump; Calls for Change in GOP Ticket

Donald Trump and his girlfriend, former model Melania Knauss financier Jeffrey Epstein and British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell pose together at the Mar-a Lago club Palm Beach Florida February 12

Donald Trump's short-time communications director and one-time pal Anthony Scaramucci attacked the president on Twitter Saturday with a chilling warning that Trump will eventually "turn" on the "entire country". Scaramucci said that he hadn't been in contact with the president since faulting Trump for his handling of recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, and for comments about four minority congresswomen. He claimed the president's words incite violence against minorities.

Scaramucci has since told CNN that he's received a wave of support from current Trump allies, lawmakers and individuals inside the White House after standing up to the president in his public feud over social media.

Scaramucci's comments came while he doubled down on weekend comments that he thinks Republicans may need to replace Trump at the top of the 2020 presidential ticket.

"I think what will end up happening is sound and reasonably minded men and women in the Republican Party will say, 'Wait a minute, we can't do this.' He is giving people a license to hate, to provide a source of anger to go after each other, and he does it on his Twitter account".

Scaramucci fired back that he's not surprised Trump turned on him.

"He started attacking me personally because I started calling him out even more loudly and directly", Scaramucci added. So I didn't pass the 100% litmus test. He remained supportive and in October 2018 released a book, Trump: The Blue-Collar President. Scaramucci has been a major donor to Republican candidates, including Trump in 2016.

In January, Scaramucci told CBSN that he probably would vote for Mr. Trump again, but argued that events could change. "But his increasingly divisive rhetoric - and damage it's doing to fabric of our society - outweighs any short-term economic gain". I tried to see [the] best in [Donald Trump] based on private interactions and select policy alignment.

He said: "The guy's dissembling a little bit, and he's sounding more and more nonsensical".

Scaramucci added that if the president "doesn't reform his behavior, it will not just be me, but many others will be considering helping to find a replacement in 2020".
