President Donald Trump's statement denouncing the Charlottesville, Va., violence needed to be "harsher" and the act should have been considered "terrorism", fired White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said Sunday.

A woman was killed and 19 injured in the university town Saturday when a auto plowed into a crowd after a white nationalist protest rally turned violent.

"The president said very strongly in his statement yesterday that he condemns all forms of violence, bigotry, and hatred". "There should be no place in society for racism, white supremacy and neo-nazis", Trump tweeted on Sunday morning. "I think there are elements inside of Washington, also inclusive in the White House, that are not necessarily abetting the president's interests or his agenda", Scaramucci said in the air of ABC News.

Studies have revealed the President's path to victory previous year was paved in the most part by four groups, including free marketeers, anti-elites, American preservationists, and staunch conservatives. His comment comes in spite of an analysis of the campaign cycle that revealed that "Trump shared more Breitbart links to his more than 15 million followers than any other news organization". "He called for national unity and bringing all Americans together", the official said. This has been going on for a long, long time.

"Mr President - we must call evil by its name".

Trump cannily utilized these white nationalists as shock-troops for his insurgent candidacy, going so far as officially placing alt-right guru Steve Bannon in the White House as a key presidential advisor. There's two words that need to be said over and over again: "domestic terrorism and white supremacy", Signer said.

"Very important for the nation to hear potus [President Trump] describe events in Charlottesville for what they are, a terror attack by white supremacists", Republican Senator Marco Rubio added. "'No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion, '" Obama tweeted, adding "'People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love'".

The former White House communications director's remarks refer to a controversial statement Trump gave Saturday condemning violence "on many sides" - rather than violence from white supremacists and neo-Nazis gathered at the rally.

White nationalists had assembled in Charlottesville to vent their frustration against the city's plans to take down a statue of Confederal Gen. Robert E. Lee.
