The head of the Republican National Committee is lashing out at Donald Trump's charges that the party's presidential nomination process is 'absolutely rigged.'
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus responded to the GOP front-runner's intensifying rhetoric late Tuesday on Twitter.
Priebus says the nomination process has been known for more than a year.
'It's the responsibility of the campaigns to understand it. Complaints now? Give us all a break,' he tweeted.

'GIVE US ALL A BREAK': Priebus tweeted his disgust after Trump railed against him personally in an interview with The Hill newspaper

  WANTS TO FIRE THE LOT OF THEM: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump tod supporters Tuesday in Rome, N.Y. that lthe GOP's delegate selection process is 'absolutely rigged'

A day earlier Priebus vented on Twitter: 'The rules were set last year. Nothing mysterious – nothing new. The rules have not changed. The rules are the same. Nothing different.'
Trump is going on the attack as he struggles to keep pace with rival Ted Cruz's delegate operation.
Cruz made gains in Colorado, North Dakota, Louisiana and elsewhere by mastering the complicated state-by-state delegate selection process.
Trump told supporters in the upstate New York town of Rome on Tuesday night that the 'Republican system is absolutely rigged.'
The Hill, an inside-the beltway Washington, D.C. newspaper, published an interview at about the same time in which Trump claimed the delegate selection process for his party's nominating convention is a 'disgrace.'Share

'WHINER': An aggressive Cruz has accused Trump of whining whenever he's not winning

He also said Priebus 'should be ashamed of himself because he knows what's going on.'
Trump has been on a tear about Colorado in particular, a state where the GOP scrapped its popular-vote primary in favor of a convention dominated by party insiders and rife with arm-twisting.
The slate of delegates that emerged after the dust settled consists of 34 people all loyal to Cruz.
Trump threatened to sue the Republican National Committee following the delegate allocation process in Louisiana, complaining that Cruz emerged with more delegates despite losing to Trump by more than 3 percentage points.
Also on Tuesday night during a CNN town hall with members of his family, Trump railed against the party, saying: 'I know the rules very well, but I know it's stacked against me by the establishment.'
'They changed the rules a number of months ago,' he told CNN host Anderson Cooper.
'You know why they changed the rules? Because they saw how I was doing and they didn't like it.'
