Trump has repeatedly said he wants to run as a Republican and expects to win the GOP nomination, but he has also insisted that if he is not treated well by party leaders and does not get the nomination he may run as an independent.

The RNC has already made it clear that it will withhold valuable party data on Republican voters from any candidate unwilling to pledge support to the party.
