President Donald Trump Saturday tweeted that his incoming communications director Anthony Scaramucci wanted to endorse him first before the Republican primaries started, but he didn't know that he would be running.

The tweet was likely in response to reports that Scaramucci in 2015 called Trump "another hack politician" and said that he'd most likely choose Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., as his running mate.

During comments made on Fox Business Network, Scaramucci added that he would "tell you who [Trump's] going to be president of — and you can tell Donald I said this: The Queens County bullies' association. You gotta cut it out now and stop all this crazy rhetoric, spinning everybody's head.

"I don't like the way he talks about women. I don't like the way he talks about our friend Megyn Kelly. And you know what? The politicians don't want to go at Trump because he's got a big mouth and he's afraid he's going to light 'em up on Fox and other places, but I'm not a politician. Bring it.

"You're an inherited-money dude from Queens County. Bring it, Donald. Bring it," Scaramucci continued." This nonsense is gonna end, and I predict it will end before Thanksgiving."

Before Scaramucci endorsed Trump, the investment-firm founder backed GOP candidates Scott Walker and Jeb Bush, reports Business Insider.

However, Scaramucci last August joined Trump's team as an economic adviser, Time reported, and on Friday, while speaking to the press about his new role in the White House, said Trump has not let him forget his earlier criticisms.

"He brings it up every 15 seconds," he said, explaining that his comments came because he was an "unexperienced person in the world of politics. I was supporting another candidate, I should have never said that about him."

He also apologized "for the 50th time" for saying what he did, and then slammed the media.

"Here's the wonderful thing about the news media," the new communications director said. "That was three minutes of my life, he's never forgotten it, you've never forgotten it, but I hope someday, Mr. President, you will forget it."
