Scaramucci, 53, additionally donated $28,500 to the Democratic National Committee in October 2008, as well as another $28,500 to the Obama Victory Fund.
CBS News reported that Scaramucci, a Long Island, New York, native, worked for Goldman Sachs before founding the investment firm SkyBridge Capital, which he later sold to a Chinese company. He was most recently the chief strategy officer and senior vice president at the Ex-Im Bank...
Scaramucci has previously called himself pro-choice, advocated gun control, and appeared to take aim at Trump’s characterization of climate change as a “hoax.”
