President Donald Trump must show leadership by "washing out" Anthony Scaramucci's mouth "with a bar of soap" and escorting him "personally off the White House grounds," Family Leader CEO Bob Vander Plaats said.

"I suggest you lead by first washing out Mr. Scaramucci’s mouth with a bar of soap," the Iowa evangelical leader said Friday on the organization's website. "After a thorough rinsing, strip his credentials and escort him personally off the White House grounds.

"President Trump must take quick and decisive action to preserve the legacy of our great republic," he said.

Vander Plaats' column followed a tweet he posted Friday calling for Scaramucci's firing after he slammed outgoing White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and senior strategist Steve Bannon in a profane tirade with The New Yorker:

Trump announced on Twitter later Friday that Homeland Security Secretary would replace Priebus, who then told Fox News and CNN that he had tendered his resignation privately to the president on Thursday.

Vander Plaats, whom Trump blasted for supporting Texas Sen. Ted Cruz during the campaign, said that "to say the conduct we have been witnessing recently is unacceptable and not representative of the 'spirit' of America is a gross understatement.

"The issues of healthcare, border security, infrastructure, and the economy are no longer the most-pressing issues," he said. "It is now honor, integrity, trust, and the restoration of decency.

"The world is watching," Vander Plaats added. "And, more importantly, our children are watching."

He said that Trump needed to "look in the mirror, accept responsibility, apologize to the American people, and declare an end to this behavior immediately.

"While what I’m urging may not be the 'Trump' brand, it is the brand of a leader.

"We need a leader," Vander Plaats said. "You must lead!"

He also demanded that faith leaders "fulfill your calling to be the prophetic voice to the king – in this case, President Trump.

"Your silence is an assent of approval."
