MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Saturday, Trump strongly condemned the violence in Charlottesville, organized by far-right nationalists, stating that the events were a "display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides," but refrained from blaming any particular group for the outbreak of violence.
"I wouldn't have recommended that statement. I think he needed to be much harsher as it related to the white supremacists and the nature of that… It's actually terrorism and whether it's domestic or international terrorism, with the moral authority of the presidency, you have to call that stuff out," Scaramucci in the air of ABC.

Governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency in the town.
In late July, the White House announced that Scaramucci resigned from his position after just 10 days in office to allow newly appointed communications director to have "a clean slate and the ability to build his own team." Scaramucci's short tenure was accompanied by a series of scandals in the media, with the then-communications director scolding previous and acting White House staff members.
