Transcript for Scaramucci: White House firing 'was meant to happen'
A lot of reports that the president's initial reaction the phone call and all that Carson's kind of amused by adding that she liked a lot. I why you let the president speak for that but I think I think you have to understand something there were probably one or two people that wanted me in that job the president being one of them who were priced 200 people. They didn't want me in that job and so you know Washington is walls I know Washington. The odds were stacked against me in the job and so. There were leaks and there was a repetitive process to try to dislodge me I need an unforced Tara. That made it easy to dismiss me as salute I guess that I accept it what I did was wrong. But we have to move on and I think the agenda that the American people want. Is middle class and lower income tax relief I think they want the opportunity see their wages grow I think the president's stance for that I think we have to put. All of ourselves. Below that age and that data agenda supersedes everybody else you pretty loyal to the president even calling collection now.

What happened was sort of meant to have.
