Tapper said that Trump’s own appointees were trying to stop the Trump agenda.
CNN host Jake Tapper said on his show Thursday afternoon that new White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci was right to say that people inside the Trump administration were trying to stop the president’s agenda.
“There are people inside the administration that think it is their job to save America from this president,” Scaramucci said earlier Thursday. “It is not their job from the establishment through calcification to sit there and try to withhold the president, to rein him in, or do things to him that will slow down his agenda.”
“Scaramucci’s not wrong here. He’s 100 percent right,” Tapper said.
The CNN host pointed out that “many of [the people trying to stop Trump’s agenda are] appointees of President Trump.”
After a rocky first six months of the Trump administration, the president brought on Scaramucci as a shot in the arm to a White House plagued by leaks and disloyalty.
