Anthony Scaramucci said Friday Steve Bannon, a former White House chief strategist, has "tendencies" toward white nationalism.

Scaramucci, who worked as the White House communications director for 11 days in July, appeared on "The View" and addressed several topics related to the White House staff, President Donald Trump, and the presidential campaign.

"I would say that [Bannon] has those tendencies. If you read Breitbart, there's a lot of that white national economic fervor," The Washington Times quotes Scaramucci as saying, referring to the website Bannon founded and is now working for again after his time at the White House.

According to Deadline, Scaramucci added that Bannon is a "great speechwriter" with "great linguistic skills," but he "has a little bit of messianic complex."

Scaramucci's time in the White House was brief, but he worked closely with the Trump campaign for several months. He told the co-hosts on "The View" that he was offered the White House communications director job on Jan. 17, "and then there were all kinds of cockamamie stories that came out that delayed my arrival into the administration. There was a lot of infighting. Those guys are gone. Unfortunately, I'm gone too, but I think it's moving a lot better directionally. It's more functional.

"The leaks are down. Some of that thankfully is [White House communications director] Hope Hicks and some of that is [chief of staff] John Kelly, but some of it is also the elimination of leakers. How about that? The combination of those things definitely helped."

Bannon, former chief of staff Reince Priebus, and former press secretary Sean Spicer have all left the Trump administration.

Regarding Spicer, Scaramucci said the two do not get along.

"He doesn't like me. Have you figured that out yet?" Scaramucci said.

Scaramucci also admitted to calling Spicer "Liar Spice" when he worked at the White House.

Spicer said recently that Scaramucci's arrival on the White House team led to his decision to resign.
