Scaramucci was also asked about a photo he had taken with 2020 presidential candidate Andrew Yang and a subsequent tweet that the “force is strong with the #YangGang,” which Scaramucci denied was an endorsement.
“The guy has a lot of good principles, he’s basically a libertarian,” Scaramucci told CNN anchor Erin Burnett when asked about Yang. “We need — after this devastation, we need a post-partisan presidency where we’re not focusing on left or right policy … and focus on right and wrong policies. So Andrew has a good message, but I’m a Republican.”
He continued: “We’ll find a Republican that has the personality, the charisma, the energy, and the smarts to take this guy [Trump] on. And so we’ll do that.”
“I predict that he won’t be the nominee,” Scaramucci said about Trump.
“Really?” a surprised Burnett reacted.
“Of course,” Scaramucci doubled down. “There’s no way that the party leadership is going to- unless they’re totally dishonest…”
The CNN anchor expressed that she thought Scaramucci was “dead wrong.”
