Trump's new message man deletes inconvenient tweets

Anthony Scaramucci

Donald Trump's new communications director has called leakers of confidential White House material "un-American" and promised to take "dramatic action" to stop such information reaching the press.

Trump's own behavior in recent days, in which he has all but declared war on both Mueller and his own Attorney General Jeff Sessions as well as revived questions over the Russian Federation investigation in an astonishing interview with the New York Times, appeared at the least to call Scaramucci's assessment of his political sense into question.

The source turned out to be Trump.

"He basically said to me, 'Hey you know, this is, maybe they did it, maybe they didn't do it, '" Scaramucci said of a recent conversation he'd had with the President about alleged Russian interference.

Scaramucci told Tapper that "a lot of people" would have accepted that meeting, which isn't true. "Wait, wait, wait", Tapper interrupted Scaramucci. Scaramucci said to laughter, referring to the president.

"Call it, if you will, a moral debt restructuring, one caused by the reckless behavior of a man who knows a thing or two about bankruptcy", he continued, in a thinly veiled reference to Trump. Luckily for new communications director Anthony Scaramucci, it's the latter.so far.

Scaramucci characterized Trump Jr.'s meeting with Russians past year as a "non-event" and said Trump still has not decided whether to sign a new Russia sanctions bill into law.

"He brought that up", Scaramucci said.

Lawmakers recently reached an agreement on legislation to impose sanctions against Russian Federation as punishment for meddling in the 2016 election, putting Mr. Trump in a predicament as to whether to sign the bill.

The Russia pressure is not going to relent next week either.Key members of the Trump campaign team, including Donald Jr., Kushner and former campaign chair Paul Manafort have been asked to give testimony on Capitol Hill that would send Russia fever into overdrive.

"I hope she runs, she is incredibly competent", he wrote in 2012 about Clinton, who would face off with Trump four years later for the presidency. "Full transparency: I'm deleting old tweets".

The new White House communications chief also dismissed any concerns about Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer during the campaign.

"Let me tell you one of the things I really hate about Washington, we have this political purity test on policy".

"So, if I'm for something and then I'm against something then, all of a sudden I'm a hypocrite". Ronald Reagan started out as a Democrat under FDR, and then he became a conservative.

Unlike the "proud clingers of guns", the words Sarah Palin used to describe Trump supporters, Scaramucci is against the epidemic of guns in the country.

"I serve @POTUS agenda & that's all that matters", Scaramucci said Saturday in the first of a pair of messages on the subject. During his first press briefing, he apologized for calling Trump "another hack politician" who is "anti-American" in a 2015 appearance on Fox Business. It was only the latest rushed exit in an administration that has seen steady turnover in only six months.

His "positive mojo" seemed to already be flowing Sunday. Asked about his shift of position, Scaramucci said both he and Trump didn't care, and addressed the President directly. "I have thick skin and we're moving on to @POTUS agenda serving the American people", he wrote in a follow-up tweet almost two hours later.
