'If it was up to me' Bannon would 'be gone', says Scaramucci

'If it was up to me' Bannon would 'be gone', says Scaramucci

Speaking to TMZ, he said: "I have, for the last decade, been an active gay rights and marriage equality supporter, particularly here in New York City but [also] around the world".

Bannon sees himself as the defender of Trump's nationalist base and has advocated for both an end or renegotiation of trade deals and a more isolationist approach to foreign affairs than McMaster. He reminded reporters that the former CEO of Breitbart News had joined his campaign relatively late a year ago.

The president doubled down on that dismissiveness at Tuesday's press conference, distancing Bannon from his unexpectedly successful presidential campaign. "I think the press treats him very unfairly". He was surprisingly loath to vent about the administration that ruined his reputation, displaying a baffling loyalty that the Trump White House does not reciprocate.

Bannon, the former leader of conservative Breitbart News website, has been a contentious figure in a divided White House for months and has been viewed as on the outs before.

But the short-lived White House communications director notes, 'it's not up to me'.

The protesters began leaving following the President's arrival at Trump Tower. Colbert unveiled that Anthony Scaramucci will be sitting with him on Monday.

Trump has not said if who will join his council as replacements.

He further said American officials should be aware that the legislation was just the first step against anti-Iran measures. The bill still needs to pass a second vote before it is delivered to a clerical body for review and passage into law.

He added: "With the moral authority of the President you have to call that stuff out". We want jobs, manufacturing in this country. "Mr. Bannon came on very much later than that, and I like him, he's a good man". Scaramucci said he believed the president reacts in a way that while purposely stir the media.

Anthony Scaramucci, who served a ten-day term as Donald Trump's Communications Director, has insisted he's a "gay rights activist".

And amid the violent protests erupted in Charlottesville, Virginia, the late-night host seemed to disagree on Trump's compassion.

The Late Show is hosting the 'Mooch, ' and Stephen Colbert couldn't hold his excitement. Following the deadly events of the weekend, where white supremacists created a deadly fracas in Charlottesville, Va., Scaramucci still chose to defend a president that has come in for criticism from politicos across the ideological spectrum.

"I thought I would last longer than a carton of milk", Scaramucci said. "It's not serving the president's interests". "He's got to appeal to people who are independents and moderates".

The source close to Mr. Bannon said his adversaries inside the White House are getting "desperate" to oust him before special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian Federation ties gains momentum and potentially forces out others close to the president. This is a last-ditch desperation play.

However, Trump would not offer his chief strategist the kind of unequivocal support that could credibly pass for job security.
