LOS ANGELES (AP) - Donald Trump, who has been sharply criticizing the Republican Party's system for selecting delegates, will speak at a California convention of party members later this month.

The California Republican Party announced Wednesday that the billionaire businessman will deliver a speech April 29 at the group's convention in Burlingame, just outside San Francisco.

Ted Cruz and John Kasich are also scheduled to speak at the weekend-long conclave.

The state primary is June 7.

Trump has spent several days denouncing the GOP's delegate-selection process as "unfair."

At a rally in Rome, New York on Tuesday, Trump criticized the allocation of all of Colorado's delegates to Cruz and called the party's system "rigged" and "corrupt."

In a statement Trump said California "has struggled to regain its full economic success" and promised a "pro-jobs" agenda.
