Trump Says His Opponents Are ‘Hanging By Their Fingertips’


Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told a crowd Sunday in Indiana that his opponents were “hanging by their fingertips” to stay in the race, ABC News reported.

Trump told the audience he was focused on winning Tuesday in the primary in Indiana so that he could prioritize on taking down Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton — or “crooked Hillary” as he called her.

“I knocked out 17 people,” Trump said, referring to the Republican candidates who have dropped out.

“I mean, the two last ones, they’re like hanging by their fingertips. They’re choking, don’t let me fall, don’t let me fall,” Trump said, reportedly grasping at the air pretending to be Republican presidential candidates Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Ohio Gov. John Kasich.
