Trump Says if the GOP Tries to Stop Him, His Followers Will Riot
In a show of power, Donald Trump is skipping the next GOP debate, and even though he’s been denying any responsibilty for inciting violence, today on CNN he warned that if the GOP tries to prevent him from becoming the party’s nominee his brownshirt followers will riot.
“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,” Trump said on CNN on Wednesday. “I think you’d have riots.”
“I wouldn’t lead it, but I think bad things would happen,” Trump said, adding the outcome would “disenfranchise” his supporters.
