Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci is continuing to rail against his old boss, again blasting President Trump in a new interview while claiming some inside the White House agree with him.

Scaramucci spoke with CNN's New Day on Monday after suggesting in an interview with Axios that Republicans may need to replace Trump in 2020 while comparing him to the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. On Monday, the former White House communications director, who says he no longer actively supports Trump, said that the president is "giving people a license to hate," that he "incites death threats" with his Twitter attacks, and that there's "something wrong with the guy as a leader," Mediaite reports. He also compared Trump to the Wicked Witch of the West and criticized "the way he's acting as a human being" following "one of the worst weeks of his presidency" when he visited victims of the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.
