Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci hit at Steve Bannon for his controversial views a day after a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, descended into violence.

Trump named Kelly chief of staff late last month when he also announced former chief of staff Reince Priebus was stepping down. "It's actually terrorism and whether it's domestic or global terrorism, with the moral authority of the presidency, you have to call that stuff out", Scaramucci in the air of ABC.

At the end of the interview, Todd repeatedly asked McMaster if he could work together with Bannon, but McMaster wouldn't answer.

Scaramucci would not elaborate but said he spoke this week with President Donald Trump.

"The whole thing is nonsensical", Scaramucci said.

"There were probably one or two people who wanted me in that job", including Trump, Scaramucci said.

White House National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster wouldn't say whether he could work with chief strategist Steve Bannon Sunday on "Meet The Press", dodging the question three times.

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.

"I think that there are elements inside of Washington, also inclusive in the White House, that are not necessarily abetting the president's interests or his agenda", the Manhasset financier told ABC News' "This Week". "I think the president knows what he's going to do with Steve Bannon".

He said it was hard for White House aides to change Trump's thinking, but that those around him needed to "be blunt with him".

"I made an unforced error that made it easy to dismiss me", he said of the New Yorker interview.
