Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump erupted on "Fox & Friends" Monday morning after a weekend that saw Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas sweep all of Colorado's 34 delegates without any votes being cast by citizens in a traditional primary process.
"I've gotten millions … of more votes than [Sen. Ted] Cruz, and I've gotten hundreds of delegates more, and we keep fighting, fighting, fighting, and then you have a Colorado where they just get all of these delegates, and it's not [even] a system," Trump said, during the Fox News broadcast. "There was no voting. I didn't go out there to make a speech or anything. There's no voting."
His comments came after Cruz won the remaining 13 delegates at the weekend's convention, bringing his total for the state to 34, an outcome he described as unfair and just shy of illegal.
"They offer them trips -- they offer them all sorts of things, and you're allowed to do that," Trump said, of the method by which some woo delegates. "I mean, you're allowed to offer trips, and you can buy all these votes. What kind of a system is this? Now, I'm an outsider, and I came into the system and I'm winning the votes by millions of votes. But the system is rigged. It's crooked."
The televised remarks followed a weekend of tweets expressing similarly critical views.
"How is it possible that the people of the great State of Colorado never got to vote in the Republican Primary? Great anger – totally unfair!" wrote Trump, in one Twitter post.
He followed it up with a second tweet: "The people of Colorado had their vote taken away from them by the phony politicians. Biggest story in politics. This will not be allowed!"
