"The president wanted to go in a different direction", he told CNN's Wolf Blitzer, adding that he thought Gen Kelly was "a brilliant pick".
Announcing the switch via Twitter, Trump called retired Marine Corps general Kelly a "great American".
Priebus, the former Republican National Committee head, had been a frequent target of rumors about his job security amid infighting and confusion within the White House and a long whisper campaign by Trump allies.
After wrongly asserting that someone "leaked" information about his finances, newly appointed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci is talking tough about cracking down on Trump administration leaks and threatening to get federal investigators involved. His selection as secretary of the agency bolstered concerns about an increase in military influence in a Trump White House. "We're going to continue working with the party and doing what we came here to do", she said.
To many in the president's inner circle, Kelly is considered the MVP of the Trump Cabinet.
Soon after, Sean Spicer had resigned as the White House Press Secretary in protest.
Priebus' appointment was announced alongside Steve Bannon's, the former Breitbart editor in chief who was appointed chief strategist.
Scaramucci, a millionaire NY financier who is going through a divorce, arrived at the White House vowing to serve Trump's interest and right a badly faltering administration.
Scaramucci was the latest top aide to be granted a direct line to Trump, and it became increasingly unclear who actually reported to Priebus. "He has been a true star of my administration", said the president.
He obliquely accused Priebus of being the source of White House leaks that have been a source of constant irritation to the president. "I could not be more proud to call Reince a dear friend". But in Trump's White House, a long list of top advisers bypasses the middle man. Scaramucci, social media director Dan Scavino and counsellor Kellyanne Conway all report directly to Trump, as do the president's daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner, both senior advisers.

In a third tweet, President Trump praised the outgoing chief of staff, who had previously worked as the chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC).
People who know Kelly told The Associated Press that he was not aware of the details of those initial orders until around the time that Trump signed them.
Many Democrats joined Senate Republicans in confirming him to the position on an overwhelming basis, with 88 votes in favor.
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC, a frequent Trump critic, welcomed Kelly as "one of the strongest and most natural leaders I've ever known".
That same day, the feud escalated when The New Yorker revealed Scaramucci had in a phone interview attacked Priebus in harsh and even vile terms, calling him a "paranoid schizophrenic" and using a vulgar term to illustrate Priebus's attempts to block him from a White House post.
