Anthony Scaramucci is scouring his Twitter feed for opinions that oppose views held by his new boss, President Trump.
On Saturday, Scaramucci, the White House’s new communications director, announced he was scrubbing his profile for old tweets that don’t jibe with Trump’s agenda.
“Full transparency: I’m deleting old tweets. Past views evolved & shouldn’t be a distraction. I serve @POTUS agenda & that’s all that matters,” he said of the series of since-deleted tweets dating to 2011.
Scaramucci’s “past views” on topics including climate change, gun control and reproductive rights stand in stark contrast to Trump’s.
“You can take steps to combat climate change without crippling the economy. The fact many people still believe CC is a hoax is disheartening,” Scaramucci wrote in March 2016.
Trump, meanwhile, has repeatedly dismissed climate change as a non-threat to the planet.
In another tweet, Scaramucci pushed for greater gun control.
“We (the USA) has 5% of the world’s population but 50% of the world’s guns. Enough is enough. It is just common sense it apply more controls,” he said in Aug 2012.
“I’ve always been for strong gun control laws,” he said in a later tweet.
Trump, on the other hand, once pledged never to “infringe” on people’s right to bear arms.
Other deleted tweets from Scaramucci reveal pro-gay marriage and pro-choice stances.
In December 2015, Scaramucci took to Twitter to denounce Trump’s proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
“Walls don’t work. Never have never will. The Berlin Wall 1961-1989 don’t fall for it,” he said.
Scaramucci has tweeted 16,000 times since joining Twitter in 2009.
