Ousted White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, who became caught up in an online Holocaust controversy, said he has a "zero tolerance policy" on Nazis, according to The Jerusalem Post.

"The fact that they're even out there is a sign that something's wrong," Scaramucci told the Post. "You've got to have a zero tolerance policy on Nazis."

The Scaramucci Post's Twitter account ran a poll last week asking followers how many Jews had died in the Holocaust, the Post noted. Scaramucci said the survey, which had sparked an uproar, had been posted by a Jewish business associate in an effort to raise awareness of the true scale of the Holocaust.

"He wasn't trying to rouse Holocaust deniers, as much as he was trying to display that there was some level of general ignorance as to how big a calamity it actually was," Scaramucci said. "We could've done a better job contextualizing it before putting it out there. It did backfire from a media firestorm perspective.

"I find it absolutely reprehensible and offensive that there are people walking around with swastikas on their arms in the United States."

Scaramucci, who lasted only 11 days in the White House before being fired, has promised to donate $25,000 to a charity that calls out anti-Semites, Newsweek reported.
