After former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci went on a profanity-laced tirade in a publicized conversation with a reporter in July, one prominent evangelical leader called on Trump to fire "the Mooch."

Bob Vander Plaats, the president of the Iowa-based social conservative advocacy group The Family Leader, took to his organization's website to voice his concern over Scaramucci and told Trump to wash his mouth out with soap.

"Mr. President, it is time to look in the mirror, accept responsibility, apologize to the American people, and declare an end to this behavior immediately," Vander Plaats wrote. "While what I'm urging may not be the 'Trump' brand, it is the brand of a leader. We need a leader. You must lead!"

Vander Plaats called on Trump to strip Scaramucci's credentials and "escort him personally off the White House grounds.

Scaramucci was ousted from the White House after 10 days.
