Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, called Donald Trump complaining about the way Colorado’s delegates were chosen “distracting.” Priebus said it “really isn’t something that most people give a darn about.” Priebus said not moving past this gets in the way of unifying the party.

Priebus tried to distance himself from the controversial process, saying he doesn’t write the rules for the Republican party, “the delegates at the convention write the rules.” However, he also said it’s “pretty much the same system the Democrats use; delegates and voters choose the nominee.”

“It’s pretty much the same system the Democrats use; delegates and voters choose the nominee,” Priebus said on Friday’s broadcast of NBC’s TODAY. “That’s what’s happening. And, quite frankly, the complaining that goes on is something that I think probably distracts from what we need to do, which is to come together as Republicans.”
