Separately, Scaramucci said he believed Trump's condemnation Saturday of hatred, bigotry and violence "on many sides" in reference to violent protests after white supremacists marched in Charlottesville, Virginia, should have been more pointed.

"Do you believe Steve Bannon does that?"

The interview with Stephanopoulos was Scaramucci's first since he was sacked 11 days into his White House job. "He's a four-star from the Marines, and he carries himself like a four-star from the Marines." the president added.

"You didn't answer. Can you and Steve Bannon work in that same White House?" It's his decision, but at the end of the day, the president has a very good idea of who the leakers are inside the White House.

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly may be considering more organizational and personnel changes for the West Wing.

"I think he would have needed to have been much harsher".

The former communications director also addressed the expletive-laden tirade in which he referred to then-Chief of Staff Reince Priebus as a "f**king paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac", and hit out at Steve Bannon, stating "I'm not Steve Bannon".

The White House later Sunday issued a statement saying of Trump's condemnation: "Of course that includes white supremacists, KKK, Neo-Nazi and all extremist groups".

The Shine snub comes after the Washington Examiner reported on Thursday that White House officials have reached out to a bevy potential replacements, but no one is willing to take a positions that seems doomed for failure, given Trump's obsession with communications and his short fuse. "It's actually terrorism and whether it's domestic or worldwide terrorism, with the moral authority of the presidency, you have to call that stuff out", Scaramucci in the air of ABC.

He said that he thought that the phone call was off the record, and called it a "very deceitful thing" for Lizza to publish his quotes.
