( – Anthony Scaramucci, who briefly served as the White House Communications Director under President Donald Trump, recently voiced concerns about Trump’s potential return to power. In a conversation with CNN, Scaramucci suggested that Trump would likely seek to expand his executive powers significantly if he were reelected. He pointed to the strong team surrounding Trump, who are proponents of ‘unitary executive power.’

Scaramucci, having worked closely with Trump during his campaign and short tenure in the White House, criticized Trump’s grasp of the U.S. Constitution, particularly the separation of powers principle. He emphasized the importance of checks and balances in the American system, which he believes Trump fails to appreciate and understand.

Moreover, Scaramucci highlighted growing apprehensions that Trump could exhibit authoritarian tendencies if he secures another term in office. This worry has been exacerbated by Trump’s own statements suggesting he would adopt dictatorial behaviors from the outset of his potential second term.

Scaramucci also shared his views on what he perceives as Trump’s ‘worldview,’ describing it as a regressive vision that aims to isolate the United States from the broader international community, both physically and ideologically. He warned that Trump’s policies, particularly his staunch anti-immigration stance, would have detrimental effects not only on global relations but also on America’s long-term well-being.

The former communications director has been openly critical of Trump’s approach to foreign policy, particularly his interactions with NATO and his perceived affinity for Russian President Vladimir Putin. Scaramucci’s criticism extends to Trump’s overall demeanor and policy stances, which he believes would be catastrophic if allowed to influence the global stage again.
