Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” when asked about Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump saying the Republican National Committee better be prepared for a rough July, RNC chairman Reince Priebus warned about threatening delegates and the convention.
Partial transcript as follows:
TODD: How concerned are you when Donald Trump says the RNC better be prepared for a rough July? And are you concerned about reports of threats being made to delegate? What do you say to any campaign doing that?
PRIEBUS: Well, sure, look, there’s no room for threatening the delegates or the convention or anybody that would be going to our national convention. But I also think some of this is and hyperbole, and the truth is is that the delegates themselves are the ones that write the rules for the convention. The RNC doesn’t write any rules. The RNC has basically an administrative role at the convention. It’s by majority rule the delegates can run the convention. So it’s on them to decide what they want to do about a lot of these issues. not us.
