Donald Trump and former aide Anthony Scaramucci engage in Twitter war

Anthony Scaramucci, who served all of 11 days in the administration as White House communications director, said he won't support Trump's re-election and suggested the GOP might need to find another candidate to top its 2020 ticket.

Speaking to CNN's John Berman, Scaramucci - a former hedge fund manager who up until recently strongly supported Trump - said he believes the president's mental stability is gradually deteriorating. He claimed the president's words incite violence against minorities.

"After almost 20 years inside the Beltway, working for two White Houses and countless political campaigns, I've never witnessed such egregious violations as I did during my time under the leadership of Donald Trump and Mike Pence", her court documents said.

Touting his accomplishments in office, Trump said he made Scaramucci's career: "Anthony, who would do anything to come back in, should remember the only reason he is on TV, and it's not for being the Mooch!"

On Monday, Scaramucci called Trump "a very weak troll", adding that "bullying is the most anti-American thing in our culture and it is emanating from the Oval Office". According to Bloomberg News, press secretary Stephanie Grisham was referring to Scaramucci when she said: "This is all so self-serving on his part and the media plays right into it".

In an interview with Axios on Sunday, Scarmucci compared President Donald Trump to a nuclear reactor and said "a couple more weeks like this and "country over party" is going to require the Republicans to replace the top of the ticket in 2020". "So I didn't pass the 100% litmus test".

Describing Trump's visit to an El Paso hospital in particular as a "catastrophe", Scaracmucci cited video showing the president talking about himself and his crowds as much as he did comforting survivors, first responders and medical personnel.

"They get in under the guise of loyalty and then when it doesn't work out, they turn on you".

The former Trump loyalist was asked Monday on CNN if he is no longer an "active supporter" of the president.

As Scaramucci predicted, Trump rose to the bait.

"He started attacking me personally because I started calling him out even more loudly and directly", Scaramucci added.

"He said: "So look, the President didn't do well on the trip", the former aide said".
