Former Sen. Al D'Amato, R-N.Y., says any effort to take away a nomination from Donald Trump at the Republican convention in Cleveland this summer is likely to cause a "revolution" in the party.

Speaking Sunday to John Catsimatidis on his popular talk show, D'Amato blasted Mitt Romney for his recent anti-Trump speech, saying that the 2012 GOP presidential nominee shouldn't mobilize against the real estate mogul.

"You've got people like that trying to stop Trump, and I think they should be ashamed of themselves," D'Amato said. "If they want to be for a candidate, be for a candidate, come out for the candidate, campaign for the candidate. But don't just go on with this business, 'We want a stalemated convention so that the powerbrokers – whoever's left of them – can decide.'"

D'Amato warned that such a measure would drive away the voters that the real estate mogul has attracted to the party and would alienate the rest of Trump's supporters.

"If they do that, I think that there's going to be a revolution. I think that the many people who have come to the party or supported Donald are gonna lose heart and faith in it. Let the process work out, don't try to engineer it."
