President Donald Trump's former communications director Anthony Scaramucci said Tuesday that Trump is "turning into" a racist, and "blowing very hard on a dog-whistle."

Scaramucci, who lasted less than two weeks in the White House, said in an interview on BBC's "Today" – amid Trump's attacks on a group of non-white Democratic congresswomen – he does not think Trump "is a racist," according to Politico.

"But here's the thing, if you continue to say and act in that manner, then we all have to look at him and say, 'OK, well, maybe you weren't a racist, but now you're turning into one,'" he said, adding Trump is "blowing very hard on a dog-whistle."

Scaramucci tweeted earlier the same day: "Would [Trump] ever tell a white immigrant – whether 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th+ generation – to 'go back to your country?' No. That's why the comments were racist and unacceptable."

Although Trump did not name the congresswomen by name, he is widely believed to have been referring to four progressive Democrats, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. who said Monday: "Weak minds and leaders challenge loyalty to our country in order to avoid challenging and debating the policy. He does not know how to defend his policies, so what he does is attack us personally. That is what this is all about."
