Embattled Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus says he's "not at odds" with front-runner Donald Trump over his charges the nomination process is "rigged" — and says he's urging no changes to convention rules before the July gathering.

"I don't think that it's a good idea for us next week — before the convention — to make serious rules changes or recommendations of changes right now," Priebus said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." 

"I think we are in a politically charged environment, I think its too complicated, I think that the RNC rules committee going forward with making rules amendment suggestions — it is not a good idea."

Priebus emphasized the convention will have its own rules committee that'll propose rules and that the full convention must vote to adopt the rules.

"I'm not at odds. I'm really not at odds," Priebus said about Trump. "There's nothing that the RNC can do to alter the rules between now and the convention…. Its up to the delegates at the convention. So the recommendations I think just confuse people, I think its a bad idea and the environment, I think, is not conducive to it."
