Incoming White House Communications director Anthony Scaramucci is letting CNN out of the doghouse.

Scaramucci said Sunday that he wanted the icy relationship between the network and the administration to thaw, according to a report.

"In the back of my mind I have to call on CNN and send a message to [CNN Worldwide President Jeff] Zucker that we are back in business," Scaramucci said on a live microphone he was wearing for a series of news interviews he was doing.

His comments were picked up on the microphone and Scaramucci confirmed them to Buzzfeed.

President Trump has taken a particular interest in criticizing CNN, which he has referred to as "very fake news."

The network recently retracted a report that tied Scaramucci, before his new White House role was announced Friday, to Russian bankers.
