Donald Trump on Wednesday morning predicted that there will be riots at the Republican national convention if he falls just short of the delegate count needed and another candidate then wins the nomination.

“I think we’ll win before getting to the convention,” Trump said on CNN’s “New Day.” “But I can tell you, if we didn’t, and if we’re 20 votes short or if we’re 100 short, and we’re at 1100 and somebody else is at 500 or 400 — because we’re way ahead of everybody — I don’t think you can say that we don’t get it automatically. I think you’d have riots. I think you’d have riots. I’m representing a tremendous — many, many millions of people.”

Trump made the comments after co-host Chris Cuomo asked the candidate over the phone how he could unify Republicans at the convention in July.

“I think there’s a natural healing process. Once the battle is over, once the war is over, I think there really is a natural healing process,” Trump said. “I’ve gotten along with people all my life. This is actually a little bit unusual. I’ve gotten along very well with people, and I think it’ll happen again.”
