Donald Trump may have memorably dubbed himself 'Mr Brexit', but it appears that his latest hiring isn't as keen on Britain leaving the EU.

Anthony Scaramucci was hired on Friday 21 July as the new communications director for the White House. His arrival sparked the resignation Sean Spicer as press secretary.

Scaramucci tweeted several times throughout 2016 saying how "great" and "wonderful" the EU was.

Two months before the referendum that saw 52% of the UK vote to leave the EU, Scaramucci said that Brexit was a "bad idea".

He also agreed with then President Barack Obama, saying that he "stood with Obama" to ensure that Britain remained in the EU to make it "greater".

He even went as far as suggesting that Boris Johnson risked standing on the "wrong side of history".

It isn't the first time that Scaramucci has been on the wrong side of Trump.

During the election campaign, he criticised Trump as being a "hack politician" who was "anti-American".

He went on, telling the panel that he thought Trump would be president of the "Queens County Bullies' Association."

After his appointment, Scaramucci started deleting his most controversial tweets to avoid putting him at odds with Trump.

Many of his tweets appeared to be against some of Trump's biggest policies.

The Mexican border wall is one of Trump's flagship plans. Shortly after announcing the policy, Scaramucci tweeted an image of the Berlin Wall saying: "Walls don't work. Never have never will. The Berlin Wall 1961-1989 don't fall for it."

Trump tweeted about the matter saying: "In all fairness to Anthony Scaramucci, he wanted to endorse me 1st, before the Republican Primaries started, but didn't think I was running!"
