Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said if it was up to him, chief strategist Stephen Bannon would be fired from President Trump’s White House.

In an appearance on CBS’s "The Late Show" with Stephen Colbert, Scaramucci was asked if Bannon would still have a job in the White House in a week amid reports that Trump is considering ousting him.

“That’s up to the president,” Scaramucci said.

“What do you think? What does the Mooch think?” Colbert asked.

“Well, if it was up to me, he would be gone,” Scaramucci replied. “But it’s not up to me.”

The former White House communications director also accused Bannon of being a leaker during the same interview.

Scaramucci lasted just 10 days in the White House before being ousted as communications director after Trump named former Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly as his new chief of staff.

His firing was due in part to a profanity-laced interview with The New Yorker, in which Scaramucci attacked Bannon.

“I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own c---,” Scaramucci said. “I’m not trying to build my own brand off the f---ing strength of the president. I’m here to serve the country."
