The Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump recently put the blame for his Colorado loss to Ted Cruz on the delegate system.
On a couple of interviews, the real estate mogul deemed the system ‘rigged,’ but at this week’s Albany rally he described it as plainly ‘crooked.’
On Tuesday night, he told his supporters in Albany that had he been allowed to go to the voters of Colorado he would have won in the state. Instead, delegates picked Cruz because of their ‘never Trump’ policy, Trump also said.
He noted that he initially thought that there would be a real election in Colorado, but a few months ago they decided to go by the delegate system.
“So it’s a crooked, crooked system,”
the presidential hopeful added.
In a recent Fox News interview, Trump complained that there was ‘no voting’ in the Centennial State and that the system was ‘rigged.’ He noted that his supporters were ‘going crazy’ there for not having been allowed to cast a vote. He added that Cruz won by the votes of politicians not the people’s, which is the essence of the delegate system.
Analysts believe that Trump employs a claim of unfairness strategy to draw the sympathy of supporters in Cleveland if delegates decide to oust him once more. People could become more sympathetic toward Trump as soon as they learn how unfairly the establishment is treating him.
Cruz, on the other hand, was not disturbed by his political rival’s rants. At a rally in San Diego, he told reporters that whenever Trump loses he becomes ‘very unhappy,’ shouts, and ‘stamps his foot.’ He recommended Trump to relax with the claims that he has been stolen upon since voters clearly voted against him in a bid to ‘reclaim sanity.’
“As we know in the state of California, wine is something best served with cheese,”
Cruz gleefully added.
In Albany, about 17,500 Trump supporters gathered at the Times Union Center to hear him speak. In New York, Trump and other candidates need to break more sweat to secure their positions as Republicans have 95 delegates and Democrats 291.
Many Trump enthusiasts gathered at the venue three hours earlier. Some praised the Presidential candidate for giving people jobs and being a ‘good guy.’ Others expressed their hopes that Trump’s lack of political experience paired with his extensive business know-how would help America more than any career politician.
