Talk radio host Michael Savage says President-elect Donald Trump should avoid choosing Reince Priebus as his chief of staff, calling him the "the enemy within," and claiming that Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, is part of the Republican establishment.

"He's the RNC! Everything the voters rejected. He will steer Trump away from every policy we sent him to D.C. to change He is the enemy within. He is (Paul) Ryan, (Mitch) McConnell, and the Old Guard. They do not want change. 'Out with the old, in with the new," Savage told Breitbart News.

Priebus is an ally of House Speaker Paul Ryan, and was responsible for the Republican Party's "autopsy" in 2012 after its candidate, Mitt Romney, lost to President Barack Obama.

One of that autopsy's conclusions was that Republicans should focus on immigration reform. "If we do not, our Party's appeal will continue to shrink to its core constituencies only," the Priebus report said, according to Breitbart.

Savage slammed Priebus, saying, "I call him 'Rinse,'" because that is "what Trump should do with his advice."

Trump's appointment of Priebus drew criticism before it was officially announced. The Tea Party Patriots Citizen Fund said, "No Washington insider, regardless of who it is, should serve as President Trump's chief of staff."

The host of "Michael Savage Show" wrote the book, "Scorched Earth: Restoring the Country After Obama." He has been a supporter of Trump for much of his campaign for president. In 2015, he called Trump the "Winston Churchill of our time."
