Scaramucci cautions CEOs about supporting Trump, coins ‘Trump-nesia

Anthony Scaramucci, a former White House communications director under⁣ President Trump, criticized some CEOs ‌for supporting Trump ⁣in the 2024 presidential elections. His critique⁢ came during an interview on MSNBC ​following a Business⁣ Roundtable meeting in Washington which coincided with a visit from Trump. The meeting included ⁣notable CEOs like Stephen Schwarzman of ‌Blackstone, ⁤Tim Cook of Apple, ⁢and Jamie Dimon ⁤of JP Morgan Chase.​ Scaramucci referred to the CEOs’ willingness to back Trump again as suffering from “Trump-nesia,” especially given their past withdrawals of support during controversial‌ incidents ⁣such as the Unite The ‍Right rally and the January 6 Capitol attack. Scaramucci highlighted ‍Schwarzman’s earlier denouncement of the January 6​ events as an insurrection against democratic values.

Anthony Scaramucci, a former Trump White House communications director, called out some attendees of this week’s Business Roundtable meeting for supporting his former boss in the 2024 presidential election.

The meeting came Thursday while former President Donald Trump visited Washington and featured prominent CEOs such as Blackstone’s Stephen Schwarzman, Apple’s Tim Cook, and JP Morgan Chase’s Jamie Dimon. In a Saturday interview on MSNBC, Scaramucci discussed some CEOs’ decisions to support the presumptive Republican presidential nominee for “these little policy promises that he’s offering.”

“It’s a little bit of Trump-nesia, if you will,” Scaramucci said.

Scaramucci, who worked in the Trump White House for 11 days in July 2017, cited the Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and “three or four other times” when CEOs “all pulled their support.” He specifically mentioned Schwarzman, who referred to the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack as an insurrection and “an affront to the democratic values we hold dear,” according to the New York Times.

“He is the chaos candidate,” Scaramucci said. “It was a chaos presidency, and I would just remind these people that they weren’t happy when he was president. Yes, they got their tax cuts, but we’ve also ballooned the deficit, and that is going to come home to roost for these CEOs.”

While Scaramucci discussed CEO support for Trump, a CNBC report this week indicated there was some uncertainty in the wake of his Business Roundtable meeting. One CEO said the former president “doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” and others said he was “remarkably meandering, could not keep a straight thought, [and] was all over the map.”

At the meeting Trump proposed an extension of his signature 2017 tax cuts, which are set to expire at the end of next year. The communications director for his campaign, Steven Cheung, said the former president was “warmly received by everyone in the room and was commended for his policy proposals.”


Scaramucci warned that Trump’s unpredictability poses a threat to the rule of law, arguing he would “take a disagreement with policy with President [Joe] Biden over the systemic integrity of the United States.”

“I would just remind these business leaders what’s made America so fantastic as a capitalist country is the predictability of our laws, and so just imagine somebody like Donald Trump, with those whims, his promises to go after people that dislike him, his adversaries, I just think it would be an unmitigated disaster,” Scaramucci said.
