Al D'Amato: Trying to Stop Trump at Convention Will Spark 'Revolution'

Former Sen. Al D'Amato, R-N.Y., says any effort to take away a nomination from Donald Trump at the Republican convention in Cleveland this summer is likely to cause a "revolution" in the party.

Speaking Sunday to John Catsimatidis on his popular talk show, D'Amato blasted Mitt Romney for his recent anti-Trump speech, saying that the 2012 GOP presidential nominee shouldn't mobilize against the real estate mogul.

"You've got people like that trying to stop Trump, and I think they should be ashamed of themselves," D'Amato said. "If they want to be for a candidate, be for a candidate, come out for the candidate, campaign for the candidate. But don't just go on with this business, 'We want a stalemated convention so that the power brokers – whoever's left of them – can decide.'"
