Trump Warns of ‘Riots’ If He’s Denied Nomination

Donald Trump 02Donald Trump warned Republicans there may be “riots” at the GOP Convention in Cleveland this summer if he is denied the nomination through a contested convention.

Bloomberg Politics reports Trump says if there’s a floor fight at the convention in Cleveland, there may be unrest among his delegates if he enters the event with the most delegates but is not given the nomination.

“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.
