“There’s no question that there would be a lot of turmoil if the establishment tries to thwart the will of the people,” Carson told CNN’s Erin Burnett on “OutFront” Wednesday evening.
Carson’s comments came hours after Trump, appearing on CNN’s “New Day,” predicted there would be riots if the Republican Party tried to stop Trump’s march to the nomination. The real estate magnate currently enjoys a sizable delegate lead over Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich.
Burnett asked if it was appropriate for the business mogul to use the word “riot.” Carson said not to look too closely into it.
“I think it’s much ado about nothing. The point is there will be a tremendous disturbance and it would be a typical move for Republicans who have this penchant for snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory.”
