Reince Priebus: 'Everyone Needs to Just Take a Deep Breath'

("Good Morning America")

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus Friday advised people protesting Donald Trump's election to "take a deep breath" and use the weekend to work toward recovery, while insisting Trump is now showing his true personality through his calls for unity.

"It's the other side now that doesn't want to accept the fact that they lost the election," Priebus told ABC "Good Morning America" anchor George Stephanopoulos. "I think everyone needs to just take a deep breath, take the weekend — today's Veterans Day — count our blessings and let's come back on Monday."

Trump enjoyed his meeting with President Barack Obama on Thursday, said Priebus, and came away "very impressed" with his first face-to-face meeting with the nation's outgoing leader.

"You had a 10-minute meeting that went 90 minutes because both of these guys probably had a great time together," Priebus said. "I can tell you, personally, President-elect Trump in private is the kind of guy that most people would want to have a beer with, although he doesn't drink. And I'm sure President Obama's the same way. That was not show."

Priebus, also appearing on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" on Friday, commented that moving forward, Trump's 100-day plan for working on national security, immigration, the economy and more are important.

"We have a mandate, and the American people decided to put the Republicans in control of the House, the Senate, and the White House, and that means that we now need to execute the will of the American people," said Priebus.

"The will of the American people is to execute a plan to get this country moving forward again and President-elect Trump that is, is going to make that happen."

Trump's mandate, Priebus continued, is one "that our country hasn't seen since Ronald Reagan across the entire Midwest, so the plan is going to get executed, and I think the American people should be encouraged by what President-elect Trump has said both on Wednesday morning and what he's done yesterday."

Priebus has been mentioned as a potential chief of staff for Trump, but on Friday said that is "not something I'm talking about right now."

"I'm sitting here at the RNC and it's a great job, and that's the one I'm doing," said Priebus.
