Republican frontrunner Donald Trump warned Wednesday that “riots” could break out if he is denied the US presidential nomination despite having won most of the party’s primary and caucus elections.
“We’re way ahead of everybody. I don’t think you can say that we don’t get it automatically,” Trump told CNN the morning after his latest round of election victories, in the states of Illinois, North Carolina and Florida.
“I think you would have riots,” he said. “You know, I’m representing many, many millions of people.”
Trump, who has never held elected office, has dominated the 2016 presidential campaign thus far with his bombastic style and his unexpectedly strong popularity with masses of American voters.
