ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION STORY: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told reporters in New York Sunday (April 17) that he doesn't think there will be violence at his party's convention if he is not selected as the nominee. However, he added that his supporters will be "angry". Trump is struggling to amass the 1,237 delegates required to win the nomination on the first ballot at the convention in July. However, in recent days, he has been outmaneuvered by campaign workers for rival candidate Sen. Ted Cruz, who have used selection rules to win more delegates than Trump in states where Cruz actually won fewer votes than the New York real billionaire. Speaking to reporters at a gathering on Staten Island Sunday, Trump said the system for selecting a presidential nominee "is broken" and vowed to change the rules if he wins the general election in November.
