Donald Trump The System Is Rigged ”Fox & Friends” FULL Interview. Donald Trump doesn’t usually take things very well whenever his presidential campaign hits a roadblock on its promise to win, win, win. As the Republican Party closes in on the increasing likelihood of a contested convention, Trump is once again blasting the “corrupt” and “totally unfair” nomination process that cost him Colorado this weekend. As The Denver Post noted, the state’s delegate system has gone through controversy in recent months after the state’s GOP leaders canceled the party’s presidential straw poll in August. While this was meant to help ensure that delegates wouldn’t be anchored to candidates who could drop out before July, concerns have been raised about how the new caucus process could allow the assignment of the delegates to occur at the party’s discretion. Ted Cruz‘s campaign re-organizaed his Colorado ground game to account for these new conditions, and it seemed to reward him with a sweep of all 34 of the state’s delegates. As such, Trump went back to his old argument that Cruz is using bribery and theft to hijack the election: The people of Colorado had their vote taken away from them by the phony politicians. Biggest story in politics. This will not be allowed! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 11, 2016 How is it possible that the people of the great State of Colorado never got to vote in the Republican Primary? Great anger – totally unfair! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 11, 2016
Trump’s statements seem to echo those of his new convention manager, Paul Manafort, who said that Cruz is using “Gestapo tactics” to subvert the peoples’ will. Trump kept up the complaining this morning, as he lamented on Fox & Friends that Cruz was virtually buying votes in order to beat him.donald trump rails on fox & friends against a rigged system where the person who wins a state doesnt get the most delegates in that particular state. donald trump TELLS FOX NEWS its not just a republican problem as bernie sanders wins state after state and some how comes out with less delegates than hillary clinton does. between this trump interview and morning joe this morning it seems the theme of the day is THE SYSTEM IS RIGGED! Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump appeared on ”Fox and Friends” this morning to blast the GOP’s nominating process. Trump argued that it should not be a race to the ”magic number” of 1,237 delegates or be decided at a contested Republican National Convention. He said the candidate who wins the most votes in the primary process should automatically be the GOP nominee. ”The system is rigged. It’s crooked,” Trump said. ”It’s a rigged system.” He said it’s particularly evident in Colorado, where Ted Cruz just completed his sweep of the state’s 34 delegates without any votes being cast by citizens in a traditional primary process. ”The people don’t get a chance to vote. The people out in Colorado are going nuts,” Trump said. ”This was a political hack deal, like so much of our country. This is what our country’s all about, I guess.” Watch more above.
