A Republican party official Monday brushed off presidential front-runner Donald Trump's suggestion that if he becomes the GOP nominee, RNC chairman Reince Priebus might be out of a job.

In comments Monday to CNN, the Republican National Committee's communications director, Sean Spicer, called the GOP under Priebus "the gold standard of political parties."

"Any candidate who got the nomination would beg Reince Priebus to stay as chairman because he's been so successful," Spicer said. "Under this chairman we've put together the most resources political party in the history of the United States."

The push-back comes in the wake of Trump's criticism of the delegation selection process as "rigged" — and Priebus' assertion that the rules guiding the process are clear and longstanding.

In an interview posted Sunday in The Washington Post, Trump was asked that if he collected the needed 1,237 delegates to cinch the nomination by June, would he retain Priebus.

"I don't know. I haven't made the determination," Trump replied.

Spicer said Priebus' record is stellar.

"When you look at our field operation and our data and digital operation, and our opposition research on Hillary Clinton and potentially [Sen.] Bernie Sanders, it's amazing," Spicer tells CNN.

"We are the gold standard of political parties. I think any candidate would be lucky to have Reince Priebus as a chairman and they should be begging him to continue the successes he's had."
