New White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci hasn't always shared the political views of the administration he now serves. "You're going to delegitimize his victory?"

Scaramucci cited senior White House adviser Jared Kushner's upcoming testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Responding to a question from the interviewer, Scaramucci said he wants "the president to be the president".

During an interview on Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace said it was an understandable move, and pulled up a 2012 tweet in which Scaramucci advocated for tougher gun control laws.

Pressed on who his source was, Scaramucci said it was the president himself. The Communications Director's answer: he wasn't sure if Trump could do that, but it was a "stupid hypothetical" because POTUS committed no wrongdoing.

"I am not saying that Donald Trump isn't brilliant - what he's done has been masterful for Donald Trump - but I think it's been very hurtful for the party", Scaramucci said, noting Trump would need to be more presidential to win the primary.

"A person that's going to be super, super tough on Russian Federation is President Donald J. Trump", Scaramucci said.

He said he would tell the staff, "If we don't stop the leaks, I'm going to stop you".

He made his first appearance before reporters in the White House briefing room on Friday and quickly apologized to Trump for referring to him as a "hack politician" during an August 2015 appearance on Fox Business Network. "You're an inherited money dude from Queens County", Scaramucci said.

Scaramucci then reiterated that he deleted his old tweets because they were a "total distraction". "The President is not going to have to pardon anybody because the Russian thing is a nonsensical thing".

Far from being cowed by the report insinuating that he may wish to use a presidential pardon to escape justice, Trump tweeted that everyone agreed that the United States president had complete power to pardon anyone.

He declined to say whether the president will sign the bill Congress is considering that would place new sanctions on Russian Federation. "Corey Lewandowski used to say early on, on the campaign, let Trump be Trump".
