Anthony Scaramucci: Trump Is Opening the Door To Be Primaried

Flash-in-the-pan White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci appeared on Fox News over the weekend to discuss Trump’s latest tweet controversy and told host Howard Kurtz that he felt the comments were a big problem for Trump and his administration.

Scaramucci said the fact that there was even a debate about whether or not the president was a racist was problematic and didn’t do Trump any favors. He went on to suggest that because of the damage from those comments a new Republican candidate may very well emerge for a 2024 run and start that path by running a primary against Trump.

It would also send a message to people that we have to reengineer this party.

After saying he didn’t believe the president was a racist, the political consultant and commentator then declared the language of the infamous tweets inarguably racist.

These are racist comments. Period. Full stop.

It’s sending the wrong message to the United States. You do not want to win the second term of your presidency by dividing the United States, okay? It’s called “united” for a reason.

Is Scaramucci opening the door for a specific candidate he may be managing in the future, or is he possibly teasing a run himself?
