Transcript for Scaramucci: Bannon's 'influence is a snag on the president'
I think people are probably reluctant to tell him the true that I make may be a Lanka would devalue saw her tweet this morning maybe Jared would do that. But you also got this sort of ban in court influence in the air which I think is a snag on the president if the president really wants to you.

They he has to move away from that sort of ban import noncitizens can't embrace parts he had no idea that that the whole thing is nonsensical it's not serving the president's interest. He's got to move more in the mainstream he's got to be more in CU where the moderates or in the independence or George. That love the president and so he does that go a very successful legislative agenda that'll be able to execute. And he doesn't do that you're gonna see this inertia or you can see this resistance from more of the establishment senators that he needs to curry faith been tough on Steve Bennett does he have to go.

But I mean it at the end of the day nominee the president has a very good idea of who believers are inside the White House the president has a very good idea of the people that are.

Make the decisions that the president needs to me.
