Priebus then denied he has encountered anxiety about Trump’s possible nomination from establishment Republicans behind closed doors.

“Honestly, I don’t hear that,” he told hosts Charlie Rose, Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell. "In a competition, sure, candidates say, ‘I’m going to be the best choice; this person isn’t going to be that great.’

“That happens all the time. After a while, when you have six serious competitors out there on the campaign stump every day, you hear all kinds of things.”

Priebus argued that controversy over the GOP primary pales in comparison to the other party's nominating process.

“Look, we’ve got some drama and intrigue going on in the Republican Party, but if you look at what’s going on in the Democratic Party, it is a complete and total train wreck,” he said. "At least we have people who are working really hard to fight and claw their way to the nomination.

“I think if you look at where we’re at as a party, if you look at where the Democrats are at, I think most people believe we’re in a pretty darn good place given the political situation both parties are in and where the electorate’s at."
