President Donald Trump’s new Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci made a vow on Sunday to stop the White House leaks that have tarnished the president’s administration. After Scaramucci had been appointed on Friday, Press Secretary Sean Spicer resigned.
What Scaramucci Will Do In His New Role
On the Sunday show, Scaramucci declared for Fox News that he “will take dramatic action to stop those leaks.” Since he has taken his new position as Communications Director, a new series of leaks followed. They suggest the administration is currently facing serious power struggles, especially since Scaramucci’s arrival prompted former Press Secretary Sean Spicer to quit. On Sunday, he declared:
I think it’s not fair to the president, it’s actually not fair to America or the people in the government.
Previously, President Trump pointed an accusing finger at his administration regarding the leaks. In his new role, Scaramucci vowed to reset the president’s image and make sure the media is going to receive his message properly. He also added that some news outlets have been fabricating information about the president and that he will fix it. He stated:
He’s one of the most effective communicators that has ever been born. And so we’re going to make sure to get that message out directly to the American people.
Scaramucci, however, confirmed that he would like to have a better relationship with the media. On Fox News, he said:
I certainly want to engage the mainstream media. I expect that they’re going to want to hold me and the White House accountable, but we’re going to want to sort of hold them accountable, too.
Scaramucci on the Russia Scandal
Trump’s administration has suffered from accusations of having colluded with Russia ever since its inception. Trump and his aides have repeatedly denied the allegations even though new information on secret meetings and interferences have come out in the meantime. Scaramucci thinks the situation is “overblown.” Moreover, on the issue of the president wanting to pardon certain offenders under the investigation, he added:
He’s basically saying he doesn’t have to pardon anybody. The president is thinking about pardoning nobody … The president is not going to have to pardon anybody because the Russia thing is a nonsensical thing.
