President Donald Trump is fearless, said Reince Priebus, the former White House chief of staff.

"President Trump is not Bush 43 or [former Gov.] Mitt Romney or [Speaker] Paul Ryan. He is a guy who fears nothing; he fears no man. And he's about as tough as it gets," Priebus said on "Behind Closed Doors," a Washington Examiner podcast.

Trump makes decisions quickly, Priebus said.

"The president, I think in a healthy way, is not overly patient to the point of allowing a process to slow down a decision-making process… he's a person who, at some point, after three months of talking about the Paris agreement, is going to make a decision," he said, referring to the U.S. exiting the Paris climate accord.

On the podcast, Priebus said that Steve Bannon, who was then Trump's chief strategist, negatively affected his job performance.

"I had a co-equal… I would prefer a president choosing one person in power, complete authority within the West Wing," he said.

The former chief of staff defended the president against claims that Trump is racist.

"I think he should highlight his actions throughout his life that show a person that isn't a racist-type person — is not a bigot. I never experienced that, by the way, with the president."

Trump can be a leader during tragedy, Priebus said.

"I think as more opportunities come — which hopefully they don't — but if more opportunities come where he can lead in tragic moments, he'll be able to hit that, and hit it out of the park. I know he can — his heart's in the right place."
