“Welcome to the Republican Party,” Trump said on ABC’s “This Week." “What’s going on in the Republican Party is a disgrace.”

"I won Louisiana and now I hear he's trying to steal delegates," Trump said, referring to Cruz.

"I have so many more votes and so many more delegates," Trump added. "And, frankly, whoever at the end, whoever has the most votes and the most delegates should be the nominee."

Cruz could end up getting 10 more delegates from Louisiana than Trump, according to The Wall Street Journal.
