Trump says Scaramucci a ‘loser’

Donald Trump hit-back at his former White House communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, for suggesting that the president had made Republicans “a minority party for a generation”.

In a Twitter post on Sunday night, Mr Trump called Mr Scaramucci “a loser who begged to come back” – in reference to the fact that he held the communications director position for only 10 days in 2017.

Mr Scaramucci had told Fox News host Steve Hilton that the American economy had been turned “upside down” amid the coronavirus pandemic, before attacking president Trump.

“The current demographic base of the Republican Party under President Trump’s control will become a minority party for a generation if we don’t broaden that tent and start including people that don’t look like you and me,” said Mr Scaramucci.

Mr Trump appeared to be watching the show, when he fired his tweet late last night.

The former White House communications director, who backed the president before turning against him in public, had words of his own.  

He said in a Tweet that Mr Trump was the “real loser”, thanks to the coronavirus death toll. 

“162,000 dead, 40 million American jobs lost on your watch. We are tired of all of the losing. We wanted you to succeed but you are an abject failure. Thankfully it will be over on 11/3. America will heal and rebuild,” wrote Mr Scaramucci.
