GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump Sunday night panned plans by rivals Ted Cruz and John Kasich for an alliance to defeat him in three states, calling the announcement "desperation" on Twitter and issuing a statement accusing them of reverting to "collusion."

"Collusion is often illegal in many other industries and yet these two Washington insiders have had to revert to collusion in order to stay alive," Trump said in the statement on his website. "They are mathematically dead and this act only shows, as puppets of donors and special interests, how truly weak they and their campaigns are."

On Sunday, the Cruz and Kasich campaigns issued statements outlining their plans, with Cruz to focus on winning delegates in Indiana, where Kasich will back off, while Cruz will "clear the path" for Kasich in Oregon and New Mexico. Both plan to resume their competition as usual after the primaries in those three states.

On Twitter, Trump posted a pair of tweets slamming the plans:



However, he went even further through his statement, calling it "sad" that "two grown politicians" are colluding against "one person who has only been a politician for ten months in order to try and stop that person from getting the Republican nomination."

Cruz has done "very poorly," said Trump, and after his "total disaster" in New York is in "free fall...he does not react well under pressure." 

Meanwhile, Kasich has only won in one state, his own, while others who were doing better have suspended their own races, said Trump.

"Marco Rubio, as an example, has more delegates than Kasich and yet suspended his campaign one month ago," said Trump. "Others, likewise, have done much better than Kasich, who would get slaughtered by Hillary Clinton once the negative ads against him begin."

In addition, said Trump, 80 percent of GOP voters are against Cruz and 85 percent against Kasich.

Trump further pointed out in his statement that he is far ahead of both Cruz and Kasich as far as delegates, has millions more votes, and he claimed that he would have more than 60 percent of the vote except for there being so many candidates running against him at the beginning of the race.

"When two candidates who have no path to victory get together to stop a candidate who is expanding the party by millions of voters, (all of whom will drop out if I am not in the race) it is yet another example of everything that is wrong in Washington and our political system," said Trump.
