Republican presidential candidate Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpAccuser says Trump should be afraid of the truth Woman behind pro-Trump Facebook page denies being influenced by Russians Shulkin says he has White House approval to root out 'subversion' at VA MORE's son, Donald Trump Jr., this week likened the GOP delegate system to communist China. 

“Since when should a presidential candidate for the Republican, or any other party for that matter, to be the president of the United States — when should they have to cater to a small group of delegates, as opposed to what the will of the people actually is?” Trump Jr. said during a radio interview Monday highlighted by BuzzFeed

“I mean, that’s almost mind-boggling. I mean, I feel like we’re living in communist China. It’s ridiculous," he added.

Host Sean Hannity suggested the system of winning support from delegates "lends itself to corruption" since delegates "are gonna be wined and dined."

"And they have been for months," Trump Jr. responded, adding later: "They've been wining and dining these people for years."

The elder Donald Trump this week commented on all the "toys" at his disposal to lure delegates. He's the current front-runner in the race for the 1,237 delegates needed to lock up the GOP nomination.

"It’s a corrupt and crooked system," Trump said on the eve of Tuesday's New York primary, according to ABC

"Look, nobody has better toys than I do. I can put [the delegates] in the best planes and bring them to the best resorts anywhere in the world. Doral, Mar-a-Lago. I can put them in the best places in the world," Trump said, referencing his private club in Florida.

"You’re basically saying, 'Delegate, listen: We’re gonna send you to Mar-a-Lago on a Boeing 757. You’re going to use the spa, you’re going to do this, you’re going to do that. We want your vote.' That’s a corrupt system," Trump said.
