Trump rips 'rigged' US election system after Colorado loss

US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump addresses a rally in Bethpage, Long Island, New York on April 6, 2016Fresh from being soundly defeated in Colorado, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump took a swipe at the US election process Monday, saying “the system is rigged” and undemocratic. Trump’s main rival, ultra-conservative Senator Ted Cruz, swept all 34 delegates at stake in the Rocky Mountain state, through a complex process at the state’s Republican convention Saturday and at a series of county elections. The arcane system in Colorado, which provides the state party apparatus greater say in the nominating process, is similar to those used in other states including North Dakota and Wyoming, as opposed to more typical primaries or caucuses where voters choose a candidate and delegates are allocated proportionally.
