In his new position as White House communications director, former Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci told Breitbart News on Saturday that during the presidential campaign, he learned from firsthand experience that Donald Trump’s supporters are the same kinds of people like his friends and neighbors in his hometown of Long Island, NY.
“It was the president that showed me, who grew up in a middle-class area like that, what was going on in my own hometown,” he said.
Scaramucci wants Trump supporters not to let “fake news” get them down. “We’re having a rough time with the mainstream media, but last time I checked during the campaign we were having a rough time with the mainstream media and the people see through it,” he said, thanking Breitbart News for helping to expose manufactured news stories like the CNN story about him that was ultimately retracted.
In his efforts to battle misleading news reports, Scaramucci said he plans to tighten up an “unfiltered message” that would “penetrate through that shell” of the media. He added that he wants to work with the media to “deescalate” the currently volatile relationship in order to get them to treat the administration fairly.
“You can look at it objectively, frankly, and see that it isn’t fair right now,” Scaramucci pointed out.
He also noted that the administration is going to continue to fulfill the president’s campaign promises, including major initiatives on tax reform, health care, and border security.
“We have a list of campaign promises that are up on Steve Bannon’s wall and we’re going right through those campaign promises and so that we can tell the American people that we are citizen politicians … we’re not career politicians or establishment players that just want to sit in Washington and milk the system,” he noted.
