But if he doesn’t? Better watch out, folks. Trump predicted “riots” if he doesn’t get the official nomination at that the Republican Party convention in July.
“What is your plan to bring people together there and get many as you know who don’t want you to get this nomination to change their minds?”
Trump’s answer begins with optimism, but quickly moves in the direction of threat:
“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 1,100 and somebody else is at 500 or 400 cause we’re way ahead of everybody, I don’t think you can say that we don’t get it automatically. I think you’d have riots.”
Here’s the March 16 clip from Cuomo’s “New Day” on CNN:
Trump now has 621 of the minimum 1,237 delegates needed for party nomination, and will need to win at least 54 percent of the remaining delegates in upcoming primaries.
