Trump made the comments while discussing how solid support for him is.
“I have the most loyal people,” he said after citing his wide lead in the polls.
He said that support for his Republican rivals is “soft.” Trump said that when people learned that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was born in Canada, he lost supporters.
