Now, Trump's former White House communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, is engaging in blatant Holocaust denialism on Twitter. Later, Lance Laifer, who tweets on behalf of the Scaramucci Post Twitter account, shared a screenshot of the poll, taking full responsibility for the poll and making sure to note that Scaramucci, who is now in London, was unaware of its posting.
Around 6 millions Jews were systematically murdered during the genocide instigated under Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany before and during World War II.
The company was launched following Scaramucci's ouster from the White House, but a website does not yet exist.
He added that he would occupy 'the center lane, ' discussing 'how we can make the society better'.
Lance Laifer is a 52-year-old hedge fund manager, according to Bloomberg.
After retweeting posts about an Anne Frank Halloween costume asking for readers "thoughts?" on the topic, the Scaramucci Post launched a new poll, asking for feedback on "how many Jews were killed in the Holocaust?".
Do you know anyone who is a Holocaust denier? I take full responsibility for it, ' Leifer added in another tweet. He also mentions that he was trying to "highlight ignorance of the basic facts of the Holocaust".
Diggs is known among the Twitterati for the unusual habit of following 500,000 people on the platform - about as many as follow him.
"The poll has been taken down", the tweet said.
Leifer said he is engaged in trying 'to synthesize social media management with business plans'.
"This is @lancelaifer and I apologize if anyone was offended by the Holocaust poll".
Anthony Scaramucci was sharply criticized for this tweet, including by the Anti-Defamation League, which noted that the question of how many Jews were killed in the Holocaust has been resolved.
