If Donald Trump's claims that he will play a prominent role at the 2012 Republican National Convention are true, Reince Priebus doesn't know anything about it.
Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, offered a vague response when asked by CNN on Friday if the real estate mogul and outspoken birther was involved in the plans for the quadrennial party confab.
"Well, for one thing, Donald Trump is a good friend of our party and I'm thankful to Donald Trump for the work he's done for us and for Governor Romney," Priebus said. "I don't know right now what he's going to do at the convention. But I do know that he's important to us and I know that he's somebody that we appreciate. Because he's telling the truth as far as where we're at in this economy. That's what we need to talk about."
