CNN's Jake Tapper and Anthony Scaramucci trade barbs in heated interview

The source turned out to be Trump.

"There's a lot of disinformation out there".

"A person that's going to be super, super tough on Russian Federation is President Donald J. Trump", Scaramucci said.

Tapper then asked Scaramucci if he would have taken that meeting. Scaramucci said to laughter, referring to the president.

"He called me from Air Force One".

White House communications director spars with CNN's Jake Tapper over Russia's election interference.

While Trump led the birther movement that peddled the lie that President Barack Obama was not born in the U.S., Scaramucci was preaching respect for the occupant of the office.

That negates a narrative that has been running out the White House for several days about how Trump hasn't shown serious interest in his pardon powers.

Jay Sekulow, a member of Trump's legal team, said on ABC's "This Week" that there was no need for Trump to pardon anyone.

"I hope she runs, she is incredibly competent", he wrote in 2012 about Clinton, who would face off with Trump four years later for the presidency. I will bring a box of Kleenex over here to CNN in 2020, ' Scaramucci boasted on CNN of Trump's re-election prospects.

President Donald Trump's new communications aide is deleting old tweets that didn't jibe with his boss' views.

"The president likes speaking from the heart, he likes telling you what he likes and dislikes", he said. Ronald Reagan started out as a Democrat under FDR, and then he became a conservative. Spicer reportedly resigned because he was opposed to Scaramucci, whom he had to report to as press secretary.

Scaramucci is set to do battle on behalf of Trump. He said Trump would make up his own mind in time and that if Trump believed Russian Federation was responsible for the 2016 efforts and a threat to future elections, he would act.

Pressed on who his source was, Scaramucci said it was the president himself.

But Spicer's departure after the most fraught six months of antagonism between the press and a West Wing that anyone can remember is just one move in a shuffle of personnel and tactics that augurs an aggressive White House fightback that is likely to intensify the current discord in Washington.

"We (the USA) has 5% of the world's population but 50% o f the world's guns", the tweet in question said.

His "positive mojo" seemed to already be flowing Sunday.

Trump's position is that his and his family's financial dealings are off limits, even though Mueller might view them as a possible tool to see whether his business history poses any conflicts of interests to the President's current role. "I have a thick skin and we're moving on to @POTUS agenda serving the American people", he added.
