Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, who served the Trump administration for less than two weeks in 2017, compared President Donald Trump to a melting nuclear reactor and said Republicans may need to throw their support behind another candidate in 2020.
In an interview with Axios on Sunday, Scaramucci said the current state of affairs in Washington is like “the early episodes of ‘Chernobyl’ on HBO, where the reactor is melting down and the apparatchiks are trying to figure out whether to cover it up or start the clean-up process.”
He added that he and other Republican supporters would consider finding a replacement candidate ahead of the presidential elections if Trump “doesn’t reform his behavior.”
“We can’t afford a full nuclear contamination site post 2020,” Scaramucci said.
Scaramucci and Trump traded barbs over the weekend after the former White House communications director said the president “didn’t do well” on his trips to El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, in the wake of two mass shootings last week.
