Scaramucci Shuts Down Claims That the White House Is in Chaos — Says Trump’s Playing the ‘Long Game’

Former White House communications director Anthoney Scaramucci claimed that the White House isn’t in chaos, despite a wild week.

From the government shutdown to Secretary of Defense James Mattis leaving to the rocky week in the stock market, some have expressed concern with President Donald Trump’s strategy, but Scaramucci isn’t one of those people.

He told Fox News that this week is just an example of President Trump playing the “long game” to deliver on campaign promises.

Watch:

“It’s not chaos. It’s basically, the president’s probably one of the few people that’s willing to play a long game as opposed to all these little blips and ticks in the market. Long game on trade. Long game on the Middle East strategy. I mean one of the reasons he’s pulling out [of Syria], you saw it right here. He doesn’t want these people in harms way unnecessarily. In his opinion, he’s decimated ISIS and it’s time to pass the baton on to people in the region to secure the situation.”

Saramucci said that Americans can’t be “everything to everybody” and the president wants to use resources in the United States, even if it bucks more-traditional neoconservatism.

“I’m with [Senator] Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and the president on this. People are upset with me because it’s outside of the neocon and it’s outside of the traditional Republican stuff, but I’ve been to these places. I’ve been to Afghanistan. I’ve been to Iraq. I’m not saying we have to have a complete withdrawal, but I totally understand where the president’s coming from.”

He also said that the perceived chaos in the stock market and the government shutdown is going to blow over, noting that markets are struggling globally, especially in China.

“He’s playing a long game, so he’s upsetting the markets temporarily, but you’ve got to give this guy credit for seeing it out,” said Scaramucci.

Scaramucci believes the market will “rally” in the New Year when the president is scheduled to finalize trade deals with China.
