When Senator Ted Cruz won Colorado, Republican front-runner Donald Trump felt that the Republican Party are trying to rig the game against him and Trump to kick out on Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus.

“It’s a disgrace for the party. And Reince Priebus should be ashamed of himself,” Trump told the Hill.

Trump feels party’s byzantine rules which vary in states, have been unfairly favoring Cruz.

“He should be ashamed of himself because he knows what’s going on.”

Priebus responded to Trump’s claims.

“It’s clearly not (rigged),” he told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on “The Situation Room.” “Look, all the candidates have the rules of the game. There were no complaints about that system, at least not in Colorado.”

Preibus continues by defending his party.

“I have to respond when the party I’m chairman of is being attacked. It’s just not true,” Priebus said, adding that the Trump campaign and the RNC are talking daily.
“This is going to blow over. I believe this is some frustration that has bubbled up, The rules are not being changed,” Priebus said.
Trump currently leads with 758 delegates, as Cruz has 538, and Kasich has 145.
