During a meeting in the Oval Office, President Trump tasked Reince Priebus, who is being replaced as White House chief of staff, with killing an annoying insect flying overhead, according to a report Friday.

The Washington Post reported the incident, citing a person familiar with the meeting, as part of story describing how Trump never truly empowered Priebus as chief of staff, and often questioned his loyalty.

The Post, citing a senior White House official, said the president wouldn't forgive Priebus for encouraging Trump to drop out of the presidential race after 2005 "Access Hollywood" tape became public.

Trump announced in tweets Friday that would be replacing Priebus with John Kelly, the secretary of homeland security.

Priebus, in interviews with CNN and Fox News, seemed content with his fate, and promised to remain on "Team Trump", even outside the White House.

"I'm always going to be a Trump fan," Priebus said on CNN Friday.
