Now Donald Trump Says He Will 'Absolutely' Consider a Third-Party Run if the RNC Isn't 'Fair’ to Him

“The RNC has been, I think, very foolish.”

NEW YORK, NY - JULY 22: Donald Trump greets supporters, tourists and the curious after taping an interview with Anderson Cooper at a Trump owned building in mid-town Manhattan on July 22, 2015 in New York City.

Donald Trump said he will "absolutely" consider mounting a third-party bid for the White House if the Republican National Committee doesn't treat him "fair."

“The RNC has not been supportive. They were always supportive when I was a contributor. I was their fair-haired boy,” Trump told The Hill in an interview published Thursday. “The RNC has been, I think, very foolish.”

The billionaire business mogul said there are "so many people" who want him to run as a third-party candidate if he doesn't win the Republican presidential nomination.

“I’ll have to see how I’m being treated by the Republicans,” Trump said. “Absolutely, if they’re not fair, that would be a factor.”

Trump's comments to The Hill — his strongest yet about a third-party candidacy — came less than a day after he told TheBlaze TV's "Dana" that his "total focus is to run as a Republican."

"I only want to run as a Republican. I want to win, because that’s way we’re going to win, the best way," Trump told host Dana Loesch. "That being said, I will tell you so many people want me to run independent. But my total focus is to run as a Republican and to win."
