Trump: The Two-Party Political System Is 100% Rigged, "It's A Crooked Deal," "I See It With Bernie Too"

|

In the wake of gaining no delegates from the Colorado state Republican convention, Donald Trump took to Monday morning's Fox & Friends to declare that "the system is rigged."

"For example-- South Carolina I won in a massive landslide," the GOP fronrunner said. "Now they're trying to pick off those delegates one by one... What kind of a system is this?"

"I win Louisiana by a lot," he continued. "I get thousands of more votes than Cruz, and then I find out I get less delegates... The system is rigged. I see it now, 100%."

"Look at Colorado -- the people don't even get a chance to vote... I heard [F&F co-host Pete Hegseth] talking about 'that's the way it is.' Well that really shouldn't be the way it is."

DONALD TRUMP: It really started with Colorado -- and the people out there are going crazy. In the Denver area, Colorado itself. They're going absolutely crazy because they weren't given a vote, this was [chosen] by politicians. It is a crooked deal. And I see it with Bernie too -- I've gotten millions more votes. Not just a couple, millions more votes than Cruz. And I've gotten hundreds of delegates more. And we keep fighting, fighting, fighting, and then you have Colorado where they choose the delegates. And it is not a system.

There was no voting, I didn't go there to make a speech or anything. There's not voting.

I heard [F&F co-host Pete Hegseth] talking about 'that's the way it is."

Well that really shouldn't be the way it is. This was changed last summer to help a guy like Cruz, and right now, I won --for example-- South Carolina I won in a massive landslide, now they're trying to pick off those delegates one by one.

That's not the way democracy is supposed to work. They offer them trips, they offer them all kinds of things, and you're allowed to do that. You're allowed to give trips, and buy all these votes? What kind of a system is this?

...

I win Louisiana by a lot. I get thousands of more votes than Cruz, and then I find out I get less delegates. Hey, I'm somebody coming in to Make America Great Again, I'm here to do something positive, I'm an outsider.

The system is rigged. I see it now, 100%. And not just on our side, but I think it is worse on the Republican side. Look at Colorado -- the people don't get a chance to vote.
