Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci made the remarks in an interview with Vanity Fair, saying, obviously, Trump would not be able to win the election. “He’s got the self-worth in terms of his self-esteem of a small pigeon. It’s a very small pigeon. And so you think this guy’s gonna look at those poll numbers and say — he’s not gonna be able to handle that humiliation,” added Scaramucci, who worked under Trump for 11 days only.
The battle of words between Scaramucci and Trump has escalated in recent weeks.
Last week, Trump took to Twitter, charging that Scaramucci was “totally incapable of handling” the role of White House communications chief. A day later, Scaramucci said on CNN that Trump had “gone off the rails,” adding, the president was “sounding more and more nonsensical.”
Scaramucci compared the US president to a “demagogue” and insisted the Trump administration’s conservative policy agenda is not worth the damage the Republican has inflicted upon America’s democratic institutions. A new poll showed on Wednesday that Trump’s disapproval rating had risen to 56 percent.
The Fox News poll found a 5 percentage point boost in Trump’s disapproval rating from last month when 51 respondents disapproved the president’s performance.
In October 2017, Trump’s disapproval rating reached a record high of 57 percent, according to Fox News.
Only 43 people contacted for the latest survey said they approve of Trump’s job performance, down from 46 percent last month.
