"Anthony Scaramucci, who was quickly terminated (11 days) from a position that he was totally incapable of handling, now seems to do nothing but television as the all time expert on 'President Trump.'" Trump tweeted Saturday night. 

Trump's tweets came after Scaramucci said Trump's visit to survivors of a Texas mass shooting was a "catastrophe."

He added that Scaramucci "knows very little about me other than the fact that this Administration has probably done more than any other Administration in its first 2 1/2 years of existence."

Trump also wrote that his former aide "should remember the only reason he is on TV, and it’s not for being the Mooch!" 

Scaramucci was ousted from his White House position after he made insulting comments to a reporter about fellow White House staff in an interview with the New Yorker.

Scaramucci on Thursday said on MSNBC that the president "didn’t do well on the trip" to El Paso, Texas. 

“Maybe he’ll tweet something negative about somebody for saying he didn’t do well, but the facts are he did not do well on the trip because if the trip is being made about him and not the demonstration of compassion and love and caring and empathy for those people, then it becomes a catastrophe for him, the administration, and it’s also a bad reflection on the country,” he added. 
 
Trump visited El Paso and Dayton, Ohio, this week after two mass shootings in the cities left 31 people dead.
