Scaramucci's 2016 op-ed targets then-candidate Trump

It has been reported that part of Spicer's resistance to Scaramucci is his perceived lack of communications credentials and his personal links to the Trump family.

In one tweet, Scaramucci said in reply to a user who said Hillary Clinton might be "in play" for the 2016 election: "I hope she runs, she is incredibly competent". "What I was anxious about in 2012, in urban centres, if you don't have a little level of gun control, it could lead to more violence".

"I should have never said that about him", Scaramucci said, adding that Trump brought it up with him "every 15 minutes".

Trump "doesn't like the fact that he has a two-minute conversation in the Oval Office or in his study and that people are running out and leaking", about the administration examining legal options of pardons, Scaramucci, who reports directly to Trump, said on CBS.

Scaramucci questioned the media's pursuit of the story.

Unfortunately in today's environment, once people have made up their mind about what you mean, they won't accept any clarification.

One interesting moment came when Tapper asked about Russia's interference in the election.

Prior to becoming a Trump supporter, Scaramucci had backed Scott Walker and criticized Trump on several occasions.

"If I said some things about him when I was working from another candidate, Mr. Trump, Mr. President, I apologize for that", Scaramucci said.

Scaramucci denied that his reference to demagoguery was specifically directed at Trump, and argued that a number of great political leaders have evolved their position on policy issues.

He said he would love to have Spicer on his staff, but Spicer decided it would be better for him to "clear the slate" for Scaramucci.

"I worked in intensely on that campaign and I think that the Russian situation is completely overblown", he told host Chris Wallace on Fox.

"The administration supports sanctions on Russian Federation and Iran and supports the direction the bill is headed, but won't weigh in conclusively until there is a final piece of legislation and no more changes are being made", the official said.

Friday's most enduring image belongs to Sean Spicer, strolling down the White House driveway shortly before 5 p.m., grinning ear-to-ear and waving to a throng of cameras as he walked through the doorway of the West Wing. If the leaks don't stop, I'm going to pare down the staff because it's just not's not fair to the president.

Trump on Saturday claimed "all agree the U. S. President has the complete power to pardon".

He also said he wanted to "soften up" the administration's relationship with the press.

But the president's daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, were "involved and supportive", according to another source, and the president got his way. So if I said I was for something and now I'm against something, that makes me a hypocrite. Kushner was focused on his upcoming interviews next week with the House and Senate intelligence committees.
