Donald Trump warned, ‘I think you’d have riots. I’m representing many, many millions of people,’ Trump said Wednesday about being denied the GOP nomination.
Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump added 99 delegates to his Republican National Convention total on Tuesday night with a crushing victory in Florida’s Republican primary election which ended Marco Rubio’s bid for the White House. He also took home victories in Illinois and North Carolina.
In spite of the political establishments blatant attempts to defame Donald Trump and sway the American people away from him, their efforts have been counterproductive and futile – America has spoken, and they want Trump as President.
The Daily Mail reported that this morning Donald Trump predicted that protests would erupt if he remains on top of the delegate count, but is denied the Republican party’s nomination at this summer’s national convention in Cleveland.
‘I don’t think you can say that we don’t get it automatically. I think you’d have riots. I’m representing many, many millions of people,’ Trump said to Chris Cuomo on CNN.
Trump took another step closer to the Republican nomination on Tuesday night with crushing victories in Florida and Illinois, and a narrower victory in North Carolina – cementing his GOP front-runner status and knocking Marco Rubio out of the race.
Here are the highlights reported by the Daily Mail:
- Donald Trump stormed to victory in Florida, Illinois and North Carolina, but John Kasich won his home state of Ohio
- Marco Rubio dropped out of race after being trounced in Florida and he said he’d join the ‘Stop Trump’ movement
- Missouri was too close to call with 99.9% of the votes counted, and only 1,726 votes separating Cruz and Trump
- In Florida Trump secured 99 delegates by taking 45.7% of the votes to Rubio’s 27.02%
- Triumphant Kasich scored his first win of the campaign with 46.78% of the votes to Trump’s 35.67% in Ohio
- Trump won in Illinois with 38.88% of the votes and North Carolina with 40.24% of the votes
- The Donald initially praised Rubio at victory rally, but later twisted the knife over his negative ad campaign
- Ted Cruz insisted that there were only two plausible candidates in the race, despite Kasich’s win
- Hillary Clinton won the Democratic races in Florida, North Carolina, Illinois Ohio and seemed set to take Missouri – a crushing blow for her only rival Bernie Sanders
- As it stands, Trump has 621 delegates, Cruz 396 and Kasich 138. 1,237 are needed to secure the nomination
CNN host Chris Cuomo asked Trump, who increased his likelihood of clinching the nomination Tuesday night with victories in Florida, Illinois and North Carolina, what his plan would be if he didn’t reach 1,237 delegates before the Republican National Convention.
Trump noted his delegate lead, and added he felt there would be a natural “healing process” heading toward the convention that would unite the party behind him. However, he said there could be consequences if a brokered convention kept him from the nomination, even if he’d gotten the most votes of any candidate heading into Cleveland.
