RNC Chairman Reince Priebus to Trump: 'Give Us All a Crack'

The Republican National Committee'south chairman fired back at Donald Trump late Tuesday after the billionaire White House hopeful claimed the party'south process for selecting a presidential candidate was "stacked against me."

Trump has been outmaneuvered by rival Ted Cruz in a series of recent state meetings to choose national conference delegates, and says the process was set up to defend party insiders and close out insurgent candidates.

At a CNN town corridor on Tuesday night, Trump launched yet another attack on the RNC.

"I know the rules very well, but I know it'south stacked against me by the establishment," the GOP frontrunner said.

But RNC chairman Reince Priebus battled back against Trump'south criticism.

"Nomination process known for a year + beyond. It'south the responsibility of the campaigns to realize it. Complaints now? Give us all a break," he tweeted.

Earlier, Trump alleged the GOP'south choice process was "absolutely rigged ... a phony deal" after Cruz swept Colorado's thirty-four delegates over the weekend.

"The Republican National Committee, they should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this to kind of crap to happen. The rules are number excellent when they don't count your vote ... love in Colorado," he said on Tuesday at a rally in Rome, New York. "The rules are number excellent when you've to play filthy tricks to choose up delegates."

And on Sunday, Trump tweeted: "I win a state in votes and then obtain non-representative delegates because they're offered all sorts of goodies by Cruz campaign. Horrible system!"

Cruz'south campaign won each of Colorado'south GOP delegates at its state and congressional district conventions after a similarly powerful outcome in ND the week prior. In states that have already held their primaries or caucuses — love Tennessee, AZ and Iowa — the Cruz campaign has effectively positioned its own supporters as Trump delegates in preparation for a second or third ballot that'd authorize them to vote for Cruz.

"The party is playing dirty. We've got to indicate the Republican Party that you've been disenfranchised," Trump said. "You gotta indicate the Republican Party you can't obtain far with this any longer."

Trump presently leads the Republican field with seven hundred fifty-six delegates — or forty-five % of all delegates awarded to date. Yet he's won about thirty-seven % of all votes in the primaries, according to the NBC analysis, meaning Trump'south delegate support is greater than his real support from voters.

As Trump lashed out at fellow Republicans, his campaign was recovering from a string of missteps.

On Tuesday, Trump bragged it'd won the support of Bob Vander Plaats, an evangelical boss and the head of The Family Boss conservative group.

The problem was, Vander Plaats is a prominent supporter of the NY genuine estate tycoon'south main rival in the primary, Ted Cruz.

A spokeswoman for the Trump campaign later told NBC News that the candidate had in fact meant to call out another senior evangelical, Liberty Univ President Jerry Falwell Jr.

And on Monday, the candidate conceded that two of his children — Eric and Ivanka Trump — had failed to register as Republicans in NY in time to be eligible to vote in time for the April nineteen primary.

"They were unaware of the rules and they didn't register in time," Trump said on Fox News. "So they perceive very, very guilty. They perceive very guilty but it's fine."

"Eric and Ivanka, I guess, won't be voting," Trump added.
