During an interview with CNN's Richard Quest, Scaramucci said he would not abandon his GOP affiliation, but would vote for and publicly support Biden in a general election contest against President TrumpDonald TrumpSunday shows preview: House GOP removes Cheney from leadership position; CDC issues new guidance for fully vaccinated Americans Navajo Nation president on Arizona's new voting restrictions: An 'assault' on our rights The Memo: Lawmakers on edge after Greene's spat with Ocasio-Cortez MORE.

"In an election between Trump and Biden, do you stay as a Republican?" Quest asked.


"Well, I stay as a Republican but I vote for Joe Biden," Scaramucci replied, adding that he would campaign for Biden if asked.

"Of course I'll campaign for him, we gotta beat Trump. C'mon, it's ridiculous. You know, and your viewers know, how crazy Trump is. And they know that sane people have to work together to beat him," he said.

Scaramucci's remarks are some of the strongest he has leveled against his former boss. He served as communications director in the White House for 10 days before exiting after an explosive confrontation on the phone with a reporter.

Scaramucci previously predicted that Republicans would force Trump from the White House by March 2020. He also thanked former White House chief of staff John KellyJohn Francis KellyMORE last month after Kelly criticized Trump.

"I want to thank General Kelly for saving my career and marriage. We have to speak up because @realDonaldTrump is a clear and present danger to our country, our world and way of life. Partriotism requires us to. No one misses your 'action' frankly it’s crazy," Scaramucci tweeted last month, tagging Trump.
