Trump claims Republican Party is 'disenfranchising people' with 'crooked shenanigans' as Cruz picks up delegates in states where the billionaire won more votes

FIRING BACK: Donald Trump warned the GOP not to monkey with the delegate process on Sunday, saying it's unfair when he wins the popular vote in some states but trails there in delegate counts

What we have going is a movement,' he said.

'Now, they're trying to subvert the movement. They can't do it with bodies. They can't do it with people because they don't have near the people that we have. So what they're trying to do is subvert the movement with crooked shenanigans. And we're just not going to let it happen.'

Trump said he 'should win' the Republican presidential nomination outright 'before we get to the convention' in July.

But on the heels of a series of statewide victories by his rival Ted Cruz that were the result of political arm-twisting, not ballot-casting, Trump appeared to be running out of patience.

One such state, Louisiana, saw the billionaire win unexpectedly by more than three per cent last month. But because Cruz's staffers showed up to take part in the Republican Party's post-election procedural wrangling, the Texas senator may go to the convention with more of the state's delegates than Trump.

'We've got a corrupt system,' Trump told supporters on Sunday.
