Anthony Scaramucci apologises for describing Donald Trump as hack politician

For instance, during an appearance on Fox Business in August 2015, the former Wall Street investor responded to then-candidate Trump's criticisms about people who work in hedge funds by calling him, "another hack politician".

"[Trump is] a hack politician", Scaramucci said. "He's probably going to make Elizabeth Warren his Vice-Presidential nominee with comments like that".

"And you know what?" "Bring it. You're an inherited-money dude from Queens County".

Scaramucci, who now serves as the senior vice president and chief strategy officer at the Export-Import Bank, will officially start his new role on August 15. Scaramucci said jokingly. "One of the biggest mistakes that I made is that I was an unexperienced person in the world of politics". During his introductory appearance at the White House, Scaramucci appeared relaxed and expressed a desire to improve the Trump administration's relationship with the USA media.

Asked whether Trump was aware of his comment, he said the president reminds him of those words on a daily basis.

"Mr. President, if you're listening, I personally apologise for the 50th time for saying that", Scaramucci added as he looked into the cameras.

"But here's the wonderful thing about the news media", Scaramucci said. He's never forgotten it, and you've never forgotten it. Scaramucci also worked as the senior vice president and chief strategy officer at the Ex-Im Bank, a co-chair of Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential campaign and co-chair of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's 2016 presidential campaign. "I think we've got...the direction very, very clearly", he told reporters at the White House after his appointment on Friday.
