GOP frontrunner Donald Trump has predicted that there will be large scale riots in the US should the establishment prevent him from becoming the Republican nominee.
Appearing on CNN, Trump said that a brokered convention would spell bad news.
“I don’t think you can say we don’t get it automatically,” Trump said, adding“I think you’d have riots. I think you’d have riots. I’m representing … many, many millions of people, in many cases first-time voters … Many Democrats, many independents coming in. That’s what the big story is really.”
“The really big story is how many people are voting in these primaries. The numbers are astronomical.” Trump added.
“Now, if you disenfranchise those people, and you say, well, I’m sorry, 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.” Trump added, referring to the convention delegate count.
“I think bad things would happen, I really do. I believe that. I wouldn’t lead it, but I think bad things would happen.” Trump predicted.
Last night, Trump increased his lead by scoring big wins in Florida, Illinois and North Carolina.
The frontrunner also announced that he will not take part in the next GOP debate on Fox News, after saying that he has had enough of debates.
Instead, Trump will speak at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference.
“You know, I’ll be honest, nobody even told me about it,” Trump said on “Fox and Friends” Wednesday.

“Nobody told me about the debates, and as you saw, the last debate on CNN was the last debate. That was going to be it.” Trump added.
“I’m doing a major speech … that night,” Trump said, referring to the speech at AIPAC. “It was scheduled a while ago, and nobody told me there was going to be more debates.”
The billionaire candidate has been under attack all week following the break out of violence, stemming from leftist ‘protesters’ attempting to shut down Trump rallies ahead of voting. Despite this, the media has continued to blame Trump for the violence in almost all cases.
