Conway called the reporting "sexist" and said she could have any job she wants in Trump's administration, according to MSNBC.

Top aides to Trump said they were "baffled" over Conway's comments about Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, MSNBC reported earlier Monday. A source said her comments escalated concerns that Conway is "pushing her own agenda" instead of driving Trump's message.

Incoming chief of staff Reince Priebus and incoming chief strategist Stephen Bannon are reportedly becoming frustrated with Conway for not becoming a team player. 

Conway on Sunday blasted Romney, a possible pick for secretary of State, for comments he made about Trump during the presidential campaign. She also questioned whether Romney would be loyal.

"I'm all for party unity, but I'm not sure we have to pay for that with the secretary of State position," Conway said on CNN's "State of the Union."  

Conway said she has received feedback from people who say they would feel "betrayed" if Trump nominated Romney to serve in his administration. During the presidential campaign, Romney was a strong critic of the president-elect.
 
"I'm just saying, we don't even know if Mitt Romney voted for Donald Trump," she said. 

"I think there are concerns that those of us that are loyal have, and we want a secretary of State who's loyal to the president."
