Melbourne, Apr. 5 (ANI): With the Americans return to the polls for yet presidential primary election, Republican frontrunner Donald Trump is pushing his rival John Kasich to leave the White House race, saying the nomination is beyond his grasp.
Trump, who is trailing GOP presidential hopeful, Ted Cruz in the polls ahead of Tuesday’s primary in Wisconsin had argued that Kasich was unfairly siphoning off delegates who will be selecting the party’s candidate for the November general election.
Trump said that it was unfair for Kasich, who has won just one primary in his home state of Ohio, to continue campaigning.
“If I didn’t have Kasich, I automatically win,” news.com.au quoted him as saying on Sunday evening in Wisconsin.
The New York billionaire suggested that Kasich, who has pledged to make it to the convention, should follow the lead of former candidates Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush and quit.
Although Trump holds a significant lead over Cruz in primaries and caucuses so far, it seems he would not be able to gain the 1,237 delegates needed to lock up the nomination ahead of this summer’s national convention in Cleveland.
Meanwhile, Kasich’s campaign countered that neither Trump nor Cruz would have enough delegates to win the nomination.(ANI)
