Former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele has little sympathy for Reince Priebus' ouster as White House chief of staff.

"This is the bed Reince has been making for himself since he was my general counsel," Steele told The Atlantic. "He's a guy who's always positioning himself for the next thing. Karma's a bitch, ain't it?"

Priebus won the RNC chairmanship in 2011 after he challenged Steele, who was Priebus' boss at the time. Steele saw the challenge as a sign of disloyalty.

Trump announced via Twitter on Friday that Priebus would be replaced by Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.

Kelly was sworn in as Trump's chief of staff on Monday.
