As a descendent of Italian immigrants, Scaramucci has said the highly controversial comments went against American values. Scaramucci said that he hadn't been in contact with the president since faulting Trump for his handling of recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, and for comments about four minority congresswomen.

Asked by Berman on "New Day" if he was "no longer an active supporter of President Trump and his reelection bid", the former Trump loyalist replied, "I think that's pretty obvious from over the weekend".

Although Scaramucci donated significantly to Trump's 2016 campaign and served for a short period as White House director of communications, he has become increasingly critical of the president in the past month. "I mean, at some point, I think the people in my party will have to look at this stuff and stop being anesthetized to it and say, 'Hey, what are we doing?'"

Scaramucci, who told CNN he still believes in Trump's policies, had supported the president since his stint in the White House came to an abrupt end in 2017.

The Skybridge Capital LLC, co-founder told Axios on Sunday that he might back a challenge to Trump, who he compared to a melting down nuclear reactor.

Over the weekend, Trump attacked the former administration official in a couple of Saturday tweets, pointing out that Scaramucci was sacked after a very brief tenure as communications director.

United States President Donald Trump's latest Twitter battle is with one of his most famous former aides: Anthony Scaramucci, aka "the Mooch".

Scaramucci also appeared to want to make amends for supporting Trump.

"I think you have to consider a change at the top of the ticket when someone is acting like this", he said. "It only got attention because most of my fellow Republicans are too scared to stand up to him in public even though in private they're saying the same things as me".

"The guy's actually dissembling a little bit, and he's sounding more and more nonsensical".

"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", he added, arguing that if Trump "doesn't reform his behavior, it will not just be me, but many others will be considering helping to find a replacement in 2020".
