GOP Debate Canceled After Trump Drops Out

Fresh off three more primary victories, Donald Trump vowed Wednesday to blow off the next Republican presidential debate and warned of “riots” if power-brokers deny him the nomination at the convention even if he's leading in the delegate count.

The billionaire New York developer, who held a narrow lead in Missouri and lost Ohio on Tuesday, is faced with the prospect of a floor fight at the party convention in July if he's leading in delegates but falls short of a majority, 1,237.

“I think we’ll win before getting to the convention, 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 1,100 and somebody else is at 500 or 400 cause we’re way ahead of everybody, I don’t think you can say that we don’t get it automatically,” Trump said on CNN on Wednesday. “I think you’d have riots.”

“I wouldn’t lead it, but I think bad things would happen,” Trump said, adding the outcome would “disenfranchise” his supporters.

It's because of Megan Kelly. Donald Trump cannot stand her or her bias against him as the candidate. I don't blame him a bit. It's a witch hunt every time he goes against her. More BS from the main stream media.

Now that they are down to three there is no way Trump wants to go up against Cruz especially on foreign policy. When there were more candidates on stage it was like a circus and Trump was able to do fine. Trump isn't one bit afraid of Megan Kelly....but he is afraid to debate Cruz.

11:13 this story absolutely amazes me. the truth is that fox did not announce this debate until after Tues and trump had already committed to another event for that night. so he declined, it had nothing to do with anything else.

If only Megyn would devote herself to equally treating candidates.
