Priebus said he had always made clear to Trump that when the President thought it was time for a new chief, he would support that.
ABOVE VIDEO:President Trump late Friday replaced his embattled chief of staff Reince Priebus with Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, the decorated retired general who had been leading his administration's charge on immigration enforcement.
But Priebus' power - which has been limited compared with past people with that title - has dwindled. But he clashed with Scaramucci, a Wall Street financier, and had been under siege by Trump advisers inside and outside of the White House who complained that he was ineffectual.

The chief of staff still fell out of favor with Trump, who watched policy losses pile up despite Republican majorities in both chambers of Congress.

Trump's family, including daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner, had lost faith in Priebus.
"One of the failures was the president never laid out a plan or his core principles and never sold them to the American people", said Rep. Charlie Dent, R-Pa.
Trump has also maintained a near open-door policy, with top aides casually poking their heads in constantly to speak with the boss.
Staff shake-ups are a tried-and-true way for struggling presidents to signal that they are ready to shift course.
However, Kelly has clashed with congressional Democrats in recent months because he has indicated that the Trump administration was unlikely to continue the Obama-era deferred action for childhood arrivals program that protects certain eligible youth from deportation if they were brought to the US illegally by their parents.
Mr Trump's Twitter announcement said: "I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff".
"I think maybe most administrations try to do this - there was an attempt to control absolutely the message", Kelly said, reflecting. "Reince is doing a fantastic job at the White House".
