The incoming White House communications director, Anthony Scaramucci announced Saturday on Twitter that he will delete old tweets which he considers a "distraction."
Scaramucci's old tweets began to refurface on Friday and highlighted his opposing views to President Donald Trump on a wide range of issues such as climate change and illegal immigration.
Two years ago, Scaramucci criticized Trump's proposal to build a wall on the U.S. and Mexico border on Twitter and wrote "Walls don't work. Never have never will. The Berlin Wall 1961-1989 don't fall for it."
The tweet was later deleted. But some Twitter users managed to screenshot Scaramucci's past tweets.
In a December 2011 tweet about Mitt Romney, Scaramucci praised the candidate for staying out of the "Trump spectacle." Two months later, he tweeted a National Journal article about Trump endorsing Newt Gingrich and wrote “Odd guy. So smart with no judgment.”
Videos have also resurfaced of Scaramucci insulting President Trump in a interview with FOX Business News in 2015 calling Trump a "hacked politician"
During a White House Press conference on Friday, Scaramucci apologized for his comments about the president.
"I was inexperienced in the world of politics...I should've never said that about him," Scaramucci said
