New White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said Sunday critics should let President Donald Trump "run the presidency" however he wants — because voters elected him to do just that.

In his first appearance on a Sunday political show, Scaramucci told CNN's "State of the Union" host Jake Tapper that the White House message will now be to defend Trump on the "nonsensical stuff" distracting from his agenda.

"You know what the problem is?" the wealthy financier asked Tapper. "Let him run the presidency the way he wants to run the presidency. He's representing the American people."

"He is super focused on his agenda," Scaramucci argued. "He is super focused on getting the health care reformed. He's super focused on cleaning out all the deregulation — all the unnecessary regulation in the United States. He's super focused on manufacturing jobs …. and getting people back to work in the United States much that's the stuff he's super focused on."

Pressed by Tapper that those issues, however, are not what Trump is tweeting about, Scaramucci fired back: "Because he doesn't feel that he's being effectively defended in the mainstream media with the nonsense narratives out."

"We're going to change that for him," he said. "We're going to defend him very, very aggressively when there's nonsensical stuff being said about him."

Scaramucci said letting Trump be Trump resonates with voters — and will get him re-elected in 2020.

"I should have seen the economic desperation in the neighborhoods like the one I grew up in," he said. "I did not see it. Mr. Trump then the candidate saw it. He now has the opportunity and the mantle of the presidency to change it. I'm going to be there with him trying to change it every step of the way."

Using example of Trump's decision on whether to sign Russia sanctions bill, Scaramucci said Trump is taking his time deciding if Russia interfered in the 2016 election – and that he'll decide "when the time is right."

"What I don't like about the whole direction of this stuff in the mainstream media and narrative is you're saying this stuff is 100 percent true," he said "If he makes a decision that it's 100 percent true, he'll be super tough on Russia. But let him do it at his own time and pace. He's not hurting anybody by doing it at his own time and pace, Jake."​

He also unapologetically addressed the president directly.

"I'm going to be working for you and I'm going to serve the American people and we're going to get your agenda out into the heartland where it belongs and we're going to turn this thing into a movement, a bigger movement than we have already," he vowed.

"I like talking to him," Scaramucci told Tapper. "You know who else I'm talking to — the people I grew up with."
