Trump Accuses Jeb Bush of Backing Convention Coup Against Him


Trump: "First of all, it's illegal. Second of all, you can't do it. Third of all, we, not me got 13, almost 14 million votes since the primary system"

Donald Trump on Saturday accused Jeb Bush of mounting a convention coup against him, after reports that Republican delegates who don't personally support Trump are looking for ways to avoid voting for him this summer.

"By the way, Jeb is working on the movement, just so you understand," Trump said to supporters at a rally in Las Vegas.
"Jeb is one of the people that's working — and the other one should be obvious," he said, though he didn't elaborate further.

Earlier at the rally, however, Trump echoed the Republican National Committee and said the reports were a media hoax.

"It's all made up by the press, folks. It's a hoax," Trump said. "This is a story — who are they going to pick? I beat everybody. I beat the hell out of them."

Several reports this week indicated that at least 30 delegates hope to change party rules next month to take away delegates who are pledged to the presumptive nominee, but who may not personally support him.
