Former Trump administration official Anthony Scaramucci has said that members of the GOP are too "intimidated" to speak out against Trump.

"It's a little bit like a cycle," Scaramucci told CNN's, Alisyn Camerota. "I mean, if you can get the cycle started, some people that are fear-based due to the president's bullying or the nonsense on his Twitter feed or how he handles himself personally, they're intimidated by him."

Scaramucci, who lasted just 11 days in the White House, claims that fellow Republicans are too scared to speak out against their leader.

"It's a little bit like a cycle," Scaramucci said. "I mean, if you can get the cycle started, some people that are fear-based due to the president's bullying or the nonsense on his Twitter feed or how he handles himself personally, they're intimidated by him."

"One person said, well, if he goes down in the polls or is politically wounded a little bit, I'll feel more comfortable coming out," he continued. "The truth of the matter is, if you come out and say the truth, that will start the process."

He thinks that it's important for the Republicans to take a stand and to speak out against Trump

"It's very tough for most people, I understand that," Scaramucci said. "It's a process for people because it's sort of, like, a loyalty trap. You're a Republican, you want to serve the president, you love the country. You know the president's unstable, so you're telling reporters, 'I'm here because it would be worse if I wasn't here.' It's sort of that sort of rhetoric going on inside the White House, inside the cabinet and up on Capitol Hill. They're saying well, 'I don't want to necessarily get primaried further to the right.'"
