GOP frontrunner Donald Trump said both Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Ohio Gov. John Kasich should drop out of the race so the Republican Party can unify.

“Folks, they both ought to drop out of the race, so we ought to unify the Republican Party,” Trump told thousands of his supporters during his campaign rally in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania Monday night at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza.“We should be bringing everybody together. It’s time.”

Because of me, everyone now sees that the Republican primary system is totally rigged and broken. When two candidates have no path to victory, they have no path, they’re mathematically out. They ought to quit so we can all get together. We can all unify and we can all go against crooked Hillary Clinton and beat her and really, really beat her bigly.

“He’s lying Ted,” Trump said about Cruz.“Boy does he choke like a dog.” The crowd began chanting, “Lying Ted! Lying Ted!”

“We got crooked Hillary. There’s no way we don’t win this whole thing and turn our country around,” Trump said.

“Isn’t it sad that two grown politicians have to collude against one person who’s only been a politician for ten months,” Trump said about Kasich and Cruz forming a plan, which their campaigns announced late Sunday night, to stop Trump in upcoming primaries to prevent him from reaching 1,237 delegates and clinching the nomination.

“Some of them are very dumb,” Trump said of politicians, adding they “don’t have a clue.”

Trump also mocked Kasich eating while holding a press conference earlier on Monday.

“This is not a presidential person,” Trump said about Kasich.
