McMaster Repeatedly Refuses to Say if He Can Work With Bannon

Anthony Scaramucci did not go gentle into that good night as he initially promised, and instead treated the world to a dose of his signature tri-state antics during an interview this morning on ABC.

When Stephanopoulos asked if there was anyone in the White House who would tell Trump the statement had been a mistake, Scaramucci noted that most of Trump's staff "may be reluctant to tell him the truth".

"What we focus on is coordinating and integrating efforts across the government and with our multinational partners and allies to present the president with options, options about some very serious national security challenges we face today and, and also options to take advantage of opportunities to secure the American and protect the American people and promote American prosperity".

White House Senior Adviser Steve Bannon attends a round table discussion held by U.S. President Donald Trump in MI on March 15.

"Can you and Steve Bannon still work together in this White House or not?"

National security adviser H.R. McMaster was asked three times by NBC's Chuck Todd on Sunday whether he can work with Bannon in the White House.

He said President Trump needed to bring in "more loyalists" in order to carry out his agenda. "If the President really wants to execute that legislative agenda that I think is so promising for the American people... then he has to move away from that sort of Bannonbart nonsense".

Like many others, Scaramucci told host George Stephanopoulos that he disagreed with Trump's weak and freaky statement on the outbreak of white supremacist violence over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Scaramucci, who was sacked after a vulgar recording of him slamming Bannon was published by The New Yorker, would not say whether the president will fire Bannon, but did say that he spoke with Trump this week. "I've never sat down with Steve and said 'hey are you a white nationalist or a white supremacist?' But I think the toleration of it by Steve Bannon is inexcusable". He has got to move more to the mainstream He has to be where the moderates and independents are that love the president. "The president has a very good idea of the people who are undermining his agenda, that are serving their own interests", Scaramucci added. "If he doesn't do that, you'll see inertia".

Mr Scaramucci, who was sacked last month after just 10 days on the job, told ABC there are "elements" within the White House trying to "eject" Mr Trump, according to the BBC. And so, we're on live television, and so I would prefer to let the president make the decisions that the president need to make.
