Donald Trump told CNN's Chris Cuomo that "there'd be riots" if he doesn't get the nomination at a contested convention this summer. After his crushing victories in Florida, Illinois, and North Carolina last night, Donald Trump took to the airwaves this morning to address some of the concerns that voters might have with his candidacy – namely, the increasingly violent physical altercations between Trump supporters and Trump protesters.
"I think we'll win before getting to the convention, but I can tell you if we didn't and if we're 20 votes short or if we're 100 short and we're at 1100 and somebody else is at 500 or 400 I don't think you can say we don't get it automatically. I think you'd have riots, I'm representing a tremendous – many many millions of people," Donald Trump said on CNN's New Day this morning.
Donald Trump, won decisive victories in three out of four Republican primaries last night, and this morning he took a different tone than usual, as the reality of his nomination is starting to sink in for the Republican base. Trump said there might be riots if he doesn't net the nomination before the convention — and if, at the convention, delegates prevent him from winning — but he also shifted gears, and talked about the divide he has caused within the Republican party, reports Talking Points Memo.
