Talk of a contested convention and that Ted Cruz won the most delegates
in Louisiana's primary while losing the race in votes is proof of "what a crooked system we have and what a rotten political system we have," front-runner Donald Trump said Sunday.
"I have millions of votes more than 'Lyin' Ted,'" Trump told ABC's Jonathan Karl on the "This Week"
program. "Millions. Millions of votes more. I have many, many delegates more. I've won areas and he's trying steal things because that's the way Ted works, okay?"
Further, said Trump, the Republican tabulation system is broken and unfair.
"I have so many millions of votes more," he said. "I've brought people into the party by the millions. You understand that. They voted by the millions more. It's one of the biggest stories in all of politics. And what do I have? I have a guy trying to steal people's delegates. This is supposed to be America. A free America. This is supposed to be a system of votes. Where you go out, you have elections. Free elections. Not elections where I won. I won Louisiana. And now I hear he's trying to steal delegates."
And what's going on with the Republican party, he continued, "is a disgrace."
"Frankly, whoever at the end, whoever has the most votes and delegates should be the nominee," Trump told Karl. "And I will beat Hillary Clinton. I haven't even started on Hillary Clinton yet. I had only one skirmish with her about two months ago. She didn't come out so well."
Meanwhile, Trump refused comment on a petition that is circulating
calling on the Republican National Committee to allow delegates at the convention in Cleveland to bring guns along.
"I have not seen the petition," said Trump. "I want to read the fine print. I have to see what it says. I'm a very, very strong person for the Second Amendment. I think very few people are stronger. I have to see the petition. I'm not going to comment to you when I haven't seen it."
