Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci shared his analysis of some CEOs who met with Donald Trump final week for a non-public gathering the place the previous president was reportedly “all over the map.”

“Would fears of another chaotic Trump presidency discourage corporate leaders from backing him this time around or are they coming back around to him?” requested MSNBC’s Alex Witt in an interview with Scaramucci on Saturday.

“It’s a little bit of Trump-nesia, if you will,” Scaramucci replied.

“I mean these guys denounced him several times.”

The presumptive GOP presidential nominee met with enterprise leaders — together with Walmart’s Doug McMillon, Apple’s Tim Cook and JPMorgan Chase’s Jamie Dimon — and spoke of his want for tax cuts on Thursday.

CEOs on the assembly who spoke with CNBC discovered Trump to be “remarkably meandering” and unable to maintain a “straight thought” through the gathering that left various enterprise leaders “shaking their head” at one level when he defined why he needed to cut back the company tax charge.

Scaramucci pointed to CEOs’ responses to Trump within the wake of the 2017 “Unite the Right” rally and different occasions once they “all pulled their support” together with Stephen A. Schwarzman, chairman and CEO of The Blackstone Group.

Schwarzman, who got here out towards Trump and declared that it was time for the GOP to “turn to a new generation of leaders” in 2022, has since signaled his help for the previous president forward of November.

“And so for some reason now they’ve decided for these little policy promises that he’s offering, they’re going to switch over to him,” mentioned Scaramucci, a frequent Trump critic since a 10-day gig as his White House communications director in 2017.

“But, you know, Jeb Bush ultimately was right, Alex. He is the chaos candidate, it was a chaos presidency and I would just remind these people that they weren’t happy when he was president. Yes they got their tax cuts but we’ve also ballooned the deficit and that is gonna come home to roost for these CEOs.”

The former White House communications director, in response to CNBC’s report on CEOs’ takeaways, mentioned it wasn’t a “great meeting” for Trump.

“He tries to put on a big charm offensive to those people who don’t like him, it’s sort’ve like the bully that’s trying to shine for a moment,” Scaramucci mentioned.

He continued, “He’s better in those rallies where he can talk about electric boats and shark attacks, exactly. He’s way better at that than he would be actually articulating economic policy in front of Fortune 500 CEOs.”
