On Wednesday morning, Republican front runner Donald Trump basically said that if another candidate wins the nomination, America could count on riots from his crazed, emotionally unstable supporters.
Trump made these comments to Chris Cuomo on CNN’s “New Day” after Cuomo asked him if how he would be able to bring the GOP together at the Republican national convention in July, despite the fact that some do not want to see Trump as the nominee at all. The business mogul said:
“I think there’s a natural healing process. Once the battle is over, once the war is over, I think there really is a natural healing process. I’ve gotten along with people all my life. This is actually a little bit unusual. I’ve gotten along very well with people, and I think it’ll happen again.”
However, because Trump bullies his way into everything, he didn’t stop there — he reminded America that his fans have proved that they are absolutely insane with the violence at this rallies, and they won’t hesitate take it up a notch if he doesn’t win. Tump warned:
“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 1100 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. I think you’d have riots. I’m representing a tremendous — many, many millions of people.”
Considering the fact that Trump has encouraged violence several times and even offered to pay any legal fees resulting from his supporters’ attacks, there’s no reason for us to take this lightly. Trump and his minions have given us more than enough proof that they’re dangerous people.
Trump then tried to comfort Americans, arguing that everything would go smoothly if we just surrendered all of our dignity and let him win. He said, “I wouldn’t lead it, but I think bad things would happen. After we win, I think a lot of feelings will be soothed.”
Trump is so close to the nomination, it’s scary. Marco Rubio has just dropped out of the presidential race, leaving one less candidate to take Trump down. Trump’s strongest competition right now is Ted Cruz.
