Anthony Scaramucci calls Trump the 'domestic terrorist of the 21st century,' compares him to Timothy McVeigh

On Anderson Cooper 360 Thursday night, former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci compared President Trump to the most infamous domestic terrorist in American history for his role in causing the deadly riot at the Capitol last week. After weeks of Trump and many prominent Republicans claiming the election of Joe Biden was fraudulent, hundreds of the president’s supporters stormed the Capitol in an attempt to stop the certification of the election.
“He incited a riot. He incited an insurrection,” Scaramucci said. “He's arguably, at least in the 21st century, you could say Timothy McVeigh for the 20th century, but he is the domestic terrorist of the 21st century, in terms of the history of the 21st century.”
McVeigh is the man who carried out the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in 1995, killing 168 people. The most deadly terrorist incident on U.S. soil until the attacks on September 11, 2001. Scaramucci believes historians will look back on Trump in the same way.
“Fifty years from now,” Scaramucci said, “a presidential historian will look at the situation and say, ‘My god, he didn't accept the election, he signaled prior to the election that he wasn't going to, and he incited an insurrection where people descended on the capitol building calling for the death of his vice president. So you’ve got to step back, Anderson, and look at it objectively, and look at it from 2071, not 2021.”
