Scaramucci on Trump: US must ‘gird for when he loses in November’

Former Trump White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said the U.S. must “gird for when” his ex-boss loses in November.

“I think the country has to gird for when he loses in November — and he’s gonna lose in November,” Scaramucci told anchor Abby Phillip during a “CNN NewsNight” appearance Friday a clip highlighted by Mediaite. “He’ll claim that the election was rigged, and he’ll try to foment the same type of violence that he fomented on the sixth of January in 2021.”

Trump made comments last month at an Ohio rally that seemed to imply violence, were he to lose the 2024 presidential election.

The remarks came when Trump at one point warned China against attempting to open up factories in Mexico to sell cars to the U.S.

“No, we’re going to put a 100 percent tariff on every single car that comes across the line, and you’re not going to be able to sell those cars if I get elected,” Trump said. “Now, if I don’t get elected, it’s going to be a blood bath for the country. That’ll be the least of it. But they’re not going to sell those cars, they’re building massive factories.”

The former president received over the “blood bath” comment from top Democrats such as President Biden and former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

“It’s clear this guy wants another January 6,” Biden said in a post on the social platform X in response to the remark. “But the American people are going to give him another resounding electoral defeat this November.”

Scaramucci, who has repeatedly criticized the former president more recently, labeled him as “most un-American presidential nominee in U.S. history” last month.

“We have to focus on Mr. Trump being the most un-American presidential nominee in U.S. history,” Scaramucci during an interview on CNN’s “The Source” with host Kaitlan Collins. “And we have to go through the things that he’s saying he’s going to do, as it relates to being the American president.”
