Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump in an interview Sunday blasted reports that rival Ted Cruz will pick up extra delegates in Louisiana.

{mosads}“Welcome to the Republican Party,” he said on ABC’s “This Week.” “What’s going on in the Republican Party is a disgrace.”

The Wall Street Journal reported that Cruz could end up getting 10 more delegates from Louisiana than Trump despite the businessman winning the state’s primary.

Cruz is likely to pick up the five delegates left behind when Marco Rubio ended his campaign, the newspaper reported, as well as the state’s five unbound delegates who can back a candidate of their choosing.

“I won Louisiana, and now I hear he’s trying to steal delegates,” Trump said Sunday.

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

Trump went on to predict that he will beat Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton in the general election.

“I haven’t even started on Hillary Clinton yet. I’m only focused on the two people I have left.”

This report was updated at 9:34 a.m.
