Trump Warns of ‘Riots’ if RNC Permits Brokered Convention

This morning Donald Trump upped the rhetorical ante in his long-simmering battle with the RNC. Asked about the prospects of a brokered Republican convention if he fails to secure a majority of delegates, Trump warned that “riots” would likely result. 

“I think we’ll win before getting to the convention,” Trump told CNN’s Chris Cuomo. “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 – because 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,” Trump said.
