Anthony Scaramucci told TimesRadio it is impossible for people to support President Trump because he continues to “move the goalposts”. Mr Scaramucci also claimed the Republican Party is in a “vice” and warned the party is set for a “reckoning”. 

Mr Scaramucci said: “Unfortunately, what the President does to people is continue to move the goalposts in a way where it becomes impossible to stay supportive.

“Those guys are in a vice, their poll numbers are going down.

“The President’s base has eroded.

“I know everybody says that it is an inflexible base but just take a look at the Wisconsin poll numbers.

“They are always biased towards Republicans, but it is 53 to 42 right now in Wisconsin.

“The President’s campaign has pulled out of Michigan, they are likely to pull out of Wisconsin now.”

He added: “I think those Republicans are in a vice now.

“They are going to have a hard time and there is going to be a reckoning in the Republican Party.”

   

Last week a former US senator stated Donald Trump is “killing” the Republican Party and driving future generations of voters away.

Jeff Flake told BBC Newsnight’s Emma Barnett it is painful to watch the direction the Republican Party is heading in with Mr Trump as the President.

The former Arizona Senator added the Republican brand has now been tarnished by the leadership of Donald Trump. 

Mr Flake said: “For the Republican Party it is not good for the population, the voters, the citizens or anything.

“Just in terms of what it is doing to the party, it is killing us as Republicans.

“Our brand is tarnished we’re in a demographic cul-de-sac now.

“We are pushing away millennials and gen X, those who are coming up and becoming voters, they have been walking away from the party for a while but now it looks like they are in a dead sprint.

“So, it is painful to watch really, to see my party go down this direction and follow the President wherever he goes.”
