Ben Carson: Blocking Trump Nom Would Be ‘Absolute Destruction’ For GOP

March 28, 2016 9:50 a.m.

An organized attempt to block frontrunner Donald Trump from securing the Republican presidential nomination at the convention would mean “absolute destruction” for the party, Ben Carson said Monday morning.

“I can tell you this, if there are shenanigans, if it’s not straightforward, all of those millions of people that Donald Trump has brought into the arena are not going to stay there,” Carson said on “Fox and Friends.” “And the Republicans are going to lose and it’s going to be not only the presidency, but it’s going to be the Senate. And it could even be the House. It’s going to be absolute destruction.”

Carson, who endorsed Trump after dropping out of the GOP race, also mocked the “established Republicans” for being more concerned with upholding the status quo than with America.

“If they’re more concerned about America, they will not blow up a straightforward process. They will let the will of the people prevail,” the retired neurosurgeon said.
