Trump Threatens "Riots" If He Isn't Handed The Republican Nomination (VIDEO)

It is no secret that GOP Party operatives hope to stop the nightmare that is Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump before he is nominated. It is also no secret that they have looked into the possibility of a brokered convention as the means to stop him. In this scenario they could block his path to becoming the nominee should he only win the majority of delegates and not the 1,237 needed to lock up said nomination.

Faced with this premise Trump has implied in the past that such actions would outrage his supporters, who let's face it, have shown increasing willingness to use violence against their political detractors.

Yesterday Trump took it one step further when he went on CNN where he warned that if the GOP tries to prevent him from becoming the party’s nominee his followers would 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. I think you’d have riots." Trump goes on to say "Well, I’m sorry, but you’re 100 votes short, even though the next one is 500 votes short, I think you would have problems like you’ve never seen before. I think bad things would happen,"

You can watch the interview's excerpt here...

Even though Trump boasts about his wide lead in the presidential primary he seems acutely aware that he is still in danger of not getting a majority of delegates and apparently has no qualms about once again inciting his followers to violence in order to get his way.
