Trump Slams 'Rigged' Delegate System In Twitter Rant


In a series of tweets, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump continued his complaints about the delegate system, which he referred to as "rigged."

On April 13, Trump unleashed a rant about the delegate system following the results in the Colorado primary, which he said cost him delegates because of the state's election rules.

“Biggest story in politics is now happening in the great State of Colorado where over one million people have been precluded from voting!” he wrote in one tweet, Business Insider reported.

Trump then continued his rant regarding the Colorado results.

“The rules DID CHANGE in Colorado shortly after I entered the race in June because the pols and their bosses knew I would win with the voters. Big protest march in Colorado on Friday afternoon! Don't let the bosses take your vote!"

Trump previously accused GOP rival Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas of offering “goodies” as an incentive to Colorado delegates so he could win in the state.

"They took it away from the voters, because I would have won in Colorado,” he told Fox News show "Fox & Friends" on April 14. 

During the "Fox & Friends" interview, the billionaire businessman was asked if he felt the rules in Colorado were changed because of him.

“I think so, yeah, I think so, because they saw that I do very well in Colorado, so I think so. Look, it's a crooked system, but what are you going to do? In the meantime, I'm winning,” he said. 

Trump expressed the same outrage regarding the outcome of the Louisiana primary, in which he felt he didn't get as many delegates as he should have.

“I end up winning Louisiana and then when everything is done I find out I get less delegates than this guy that got his a-- kicked, OK? Give me a break. Really disgust[s] me. So it's a very sick system,” he said at a rally, ABC News reported.

In Louisiana, Trump got 41.4 percent of the vote while Cruz got 37.8 percent. Cruz won 14 delegates in that state, while Trump earned 15.
