During the interview, his first sitdown TV interview since he left the White House after 10 days on the job, Scaramucci also told ABC he believed chief strategist Steve Bannon was one of the White House's biggest problems.
The former White House communications director's remarks refer to a controversial statement Trump gave Saturday condemning violence "on many sides" - rather than violence from white supremacists and neo-Nazis gathered at the rally.
"Well, I wouldn't have recommended that statement", the former (and briefly) White House communications director said of Trump's "blame on many sides" speech yesterday.
"I think there are elements inside of Washington, also inclusive in the White House, that are not necessarily abetting the president's interests or his agenda". Nationalist bete noire H.R. McMaster will appear on "This Week" and "Meet the Press", CIA chief Mike Pompeo will guest on "Face the Nation" and "Fox News Sunday", and Trump counterterror advisor Tom Bossert will sit down with "State of the Union". He likes doing the opposite of what the media thinks he's going to do.
"What happens in Washington.is the president is not a representative of the political establishment class, so for whatever reason the people have made a decision that they want to eject him", Mr Scaramucci said. "He's going to do what he wants to do, how he wants to do it".
Scaramucci had lambasted Bannon - a senior White House adviser on leave from his position as an executive of the alt-right Breitbart News Network - in a profanity-laden interview with a New Yorker reporter.
"He has to moved away from that sort of Bannon-bart nonsense", Scaramucci added.
STEPHANOPOULOS: You have been tough on Steve Bannon, does he have to go?
SCARAMUCCI: Well, yeah. Look, we're not on a phone call, a taped phone call.
"I think people are probably reluctant to tell him the truth".
His firing capped a tumultuous period within the Trump White House.
