Typically, when you transition out of a job for the president, it’s on to greener pastures with little or no fanfare. But, in the case of President Donald Trump’s inner circle, some of these transitions have been awkward. And, because the news reports on every detail of this presidency, there’s no escaping a public outing if you get “excused” in less than desirable circumstances.
Which brings us to the case of Anthony Scaramucci. Everyone agrees this guy did not need a job with the president. He was doing just fine on his own. In fact, being tied to Trump, in this case, brought a good deal of unwanted attention to the former director of communications for the president. It was, in no uncertain terms, a rough initial outing in the political realm, but Mr. Scaramucci says it wasn’t enough to put him off politics forever.
In a recent report by the Associated Press, Scaramucci says he is still in regular contact with the Trump team and has not ruled out a return to the rough-and-tumble world of this president’s White House:
“I have very good relationships there still, and you have to remember we were a team for 18 months, and so we all had different roles. And so I’m still playing my role frankly. I’m an advocate for the President, (and a) media surrogate when I need to be."
But, for the moment, Mr. Scaramucci is following a different calling. He’s working with the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce, helping to stimulate business opportunities and have a voice in public policy.
While the financier is not Jewish, he does have strong ties with members of this influential New York-based organization. His goal with his latest work is to look at what Israel is offering in the world of high-tech innovation.
A primary focus, but not one that eliminates a return to politics, he told the AP:
“At some point, I’ll probably be more involved from the outside, but more in a re-election capability than from inside the administration.”
Mr. Scaramucci was a member of Mr. Trump’s campaign and transition teams before being appointed White House communications director last summer. He spent 11 days in that position before being let go after a very public, expletive-ridden interview with The New Yorker in which he criticized various members of the Trump team.
That presupposed an untidy exit from a team headed by a man who prizes loyalty over all, though it, apparently, did not put too much distance between Mr. Scaramucci and the Trump team. For the Scaramucci brand, it's likely to have more success whether in tech or politics.
