Despite Donald Trump‘s claims that he does not promote violence among his supporters, the Republican presidential frontrunner recently said that if he does not receive the GOP nominee, there would be “riots”.
Although he is leading the Republican primary race by a wide margin, casino mogul Donald Trump is still far from winning the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the party’s uncontested nomination.
Trump warned Wednesday morning that there would be widespread unrest if he does not “automatically” get the nomination as the candidate with the greatest number of delegates.
“I think you would have riots,” Trump said during an interview with CNN, adding that he represents “many, many millions of people,” including several first-time voters.
“If you disenfranchise those people, and you say, ‘Well, I’m sorry, but you’re 100 votes short, even though the next one is 500 votes short,’ I think you would have problems like you’ve never seen before. I think bad things would happen,” Trump continued. “I wouldn’t lead it, but I think bad things would happen.”
