Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus praised presumed GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump for firing his campaign manager Corey Lewandowski Monday.

During an appearance on Fox News’ “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren,” Priebus told the host he thought the move was a step in the right direction.

“When you look at the shift from a primary election over to the general election, this is sort of the professionalization that continues the pivot to the presidential,” he said. “I think it’s a good sign I think for the campaign.”

While speaking with Bill O’Reilly earlier, Trump said he was “proud of the job Corey has done,” but wanted to change his campaign’s style.

“We’re going to go a little bit of a different route from this point forward,” he told the host.
