Following his win in Tuesday’s New York State Republican presidential primary, party front-runner Donald Trump addressed his supporters declared that it wasn’t much of a race anymore between he and opponent Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and that he was glad to have won delegates “with the votes.”
“We don’t have much of a race anymore,” Trump declared.
He added that Cruz was nearly mathematically eliminated, but insisted that system was “crooked” and he sought to “go back to the old way.”
“Nobody should be given delegates, which is a ticket to victory, and it’s not a fair ticket. And even though we’re leading by a lot and we can’t be caught–it’s impossible to catch us–nobody should take delegates and claim victory unless they get those delegates with voters and voting, and that’s what’s going to happen. And you watch. Because the people aren’t going to stand for it. It’s a crooked system, it’s a system that’s rigged, and we’re gonna go back to the old way. It’s called ‘You vote and you win.'”
