WASHINGTON: Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, fresh off a string of election victories, said on Wednesday he was confident he would get enough delegates to win his party's nomination and warned of unrest if it were denied to him.

Trump, in an interview with CNN, said if he got a large number of delegates yet was denied the nomination: "I don't think you can say that we don't get it automatically. I think you'd have riots. I think you'd have riots. I'm representing many, many millions of people."

Last week, the Republican presidential frontrunner claimed that more than one-fourths of Muslims are “very militant”.

In latest controversial statements adding to his anti-Muslim rhetoric, Trump told Fox News, ”It’s (militant Muslims) 27 per cent, could be 35 per cent, would go to war, the hatred is tremendous.”

The comments came in response to a question whether more than 100,000 of the 1.6 billion Muslims are fighting for jihadist causes.
