President Trump responded after former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci got into a sparring match with Fox News host Steve Hilton.
According to The Hill:
Anthony Scaramucci had a heated debate with Fox News host Steve Hilton, with the former White House communications director accusing President Trump of politicizing the coronavirus pandemic while shrinking the Republican Party and generating a response from Trump, who called his former aide a “loser.”
“No. 1, the economy is upside down,” Scaramucci told Hilton on “The Next Revolution” late Sunday. “You had 13 percent unemployment for the African American community.
“No. 2, he’s politicized the science around the pandemic,” Scaramucci continued. “And the last thing [and] the most important thing for me, about the Republican Party … we are shrinking, and so in order to expand the tent, we have to reframe and reengineer the Republican Party.”
“Let’s start with regulation, an important issue for every small business out there for jobs and growth. In 2016, Anthony, you said that regulation is crushing growth. Now you want it much higher than it was then,” Hilton noted. “Why?”
Scaramucci responded that he did not want that but Hilton reminded him that by backing Biden, increased regulation is exactly what he wants and is going to get.
