Trump Jr.: Cruz Can Only Win Nomination By ‘Bribing’ Delegates

AP

Donald Trump Jr., son to the Republican presidential frontrunner, said Sunday that his dad’s opponent, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) could only win the GOP nomination by “bribing” delegates.

Trump Jr. continued his critiques on the pathway to a nomination on CNN’s “State of the Union” and said that there was “no accountability” in the Republican party.

“You know, Ted Cruz has no chance of winning this without bribing the delegates,” Trump Jr. said. “That’s his game at this point, okay, he’s mathematically eliminated, but that’s been his game from day one because he’s not an appealing candidate to the general election voter.”

Trump Jr. compared the nomination process to living in “communist China.” The elder Trump has characterized the system as “rigged” by party insiders and “totally unfair.”
