Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump responded in an interview aired Sunday to reports that GOP officials had discussed what they would do in the case of a contested convention.

Trump said in the interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace that he was “sorry” to the Republican leaders.

“Look, I understand what they’re going through. I wasn’t supposed to be here. I was a member of the establishment seven months ago,” Trump said. “I’m not supposed to be doing this. You see I’m supposed to be on the other side writing checks and having people do whatever I want, puppets, like puppets.”

Wallace asked Trump what his response was to the GOP officials.

“I say, folks, you know, I’m sorry I did this to you, but you’ve got to get used to it,” Trump said. “It’s one of those little problems in life.”
