FILE - In this Jan. 24, 2014 file photo, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus is seen at the RNC winter meeting in Washington. Preibus acknowledges the GOP is “a tale of two parties,” in an interview with the Associated Press. “We’ve got a midterm party that doesn’t lose, and a presidential party that’s having a hard time winning,” he said. But he declined to blame the split on policy, be it immigration or budget gridlock that House Republicans have helped bring about. Instead, he said the party has largely conceded minority and younger voters by not engaging them directly in their communities. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh, File) MORE LESS

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus doesn’t want to hear Donald Trump whining about delegate allocation rules that have enabled Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to make a play for the party’s nomination.

Trump has called the delegate game “very unfair” and said that the process is “stacked against” him. Priebus blasted him on Twitter late Tuesday without mentioning him by name.

“Nomination process known for a year + beyond. It’s the responsibility of the campaigns to understand it. Complaints now? Give us all a break,” Priebus tweeted in what seemed to be an allusion to Trump.
