    Donald Trump might fall short of the majority of delegates required, enabling the party's establishment to put forward another name at the July convention in Cleveland to formally pick its candidate. In an interview with CNN on Wednesday, Trump said the party could not deny him the nomination should he fail to win enough delegates. "I don't think you can say that we don't get it automatically. I think you'd have riots. I think you'd have riots. I'm representing many, many millions of people." (Reuters)

    While the Republicans were mired deeper in turmoil, Hillary Clinton won victories in at least four states on Tuesday that put her in good shape to defeat US Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and win the Democratic Party's nomination. Republican Party leaders are appalled at Donald Trump's incendiary rhetoric and reject policies such as his vow to deport 11 million illegal immigrants, temporarily ban Muslims from the United States and build a wall along the Mexican border.

    The party tried to play down his riot comments, only days after Donald Trump supporters and protesters clashed at a rally for the Republican in Chicago that was later scrapped. "First of all, I assume he is speaking figuratively," Republican National Committee spokesman Sean Spicer told CNN. Recent outbreaks of violence during protests at Trump rallies have prompted President Barack Obama, a Democrat, and mainstream Republican figures to speak out against the billionaire. (Reuters)

  • David Farber, a professor of modern American history at Temple University in Philadelphia, said that, though there have been many episodes of violent unrest at American political events, not least the 1968 Democratic convention, Donald Trump's warning of a riot is unprecedented. (Reuters)

    In comments likely to raise more concern in the Republican establishment about Trump's lack of experience and temperament, the former reality TV show host said he was for the most part his own foreign affairs adviser. "I'm speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain," he told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" show. "I know what I'm doing. ... My primary consultant is myself." (Reuters)

    Growing in confidence, Donald Trump pulled out of a Republican debate scheduled for Monday in Utah, saying it clashed with a speech he plans to give to a pro-Israel group. Debate hosts Fox News then canceled the event. Trump now needs to win about 55 percent of the roughly 1,100 delegates still up for grabs in state-by-state nominating contests to guarantee the nomination. It is not an insurmountable challenge.

    Republican's caught like a rat in a trap. Republican's have spent over 40 years recruiting the intolerant and ignorant and now the inmates have taken over the asylum and Trump, the tail, and his merry band of know nothings are wagging the Republican dog. Having little knowledge and less understanding of basic economics, history, and civics has long been a Republican long suit, but this carnival barker crowd has out done them all. Adios and good riddance.
