Skybridge Capital managing partner Anthony Scaramucci, who was recently named an adviser to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's campaign, promised the Department of Labor's fiduciary rule would be repealed if Mr. Trump takes office, as InvestmentNews senior reporter Mark Schoeff Jr. reported Tuesday.

Mr. Scaramucci's comments also included a controversial comparison between the DOL's regulation and the 1857 Dred Scott decision.

The comments drew impassioned responses on Twitter in a conversation that included Mr. Scaramucci himself.
