The former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci unloaded on his old boss President Donald Trump in an interview, calling him "worse than racist" and saying that he believes him to be in mental decline.

Scaramucci, a New York City financier, was fired from the White House in 2017 after just 11 days in the job following a profanity-laced attack on colleagues. He has since appeared in the media regularly, often making supportive comments about the president and his policies.
