ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump tells an audience in Bridgeport, Connecticut "We've got to change your motto. Let's change it to 'If we elect Trump, we will thrive' ok?" Speaking during a rally on Saturday (April 22) Trump said, "The more we win by the better it's going to be because we have a movement going on." The Republican front-runner told the crowd that television host Bill O'Reilly has said "'The Trump phenomena' or something to that effect, is the biggest political story, the most important political story of his lifetime... and he mentioned in that the assassination of John F. Kennedy." Trump, 69, needs 1,237 delegates to win the nomination outright for the Nov. 8 election. Rivals Cruz, 45, and Gov. John Kasich, 63, are trying to stop him from getting a majority of delegates, so they can force a contested convention in which one of them could emerge as the nominee. But Trump said he doesn't understand why he's not getting more delegates for his primary wins. "We're dealing with a crooked system, like crooked Hillary, and we're dealing, we're dealing, we're really dealing with a fixed deal and we're going to change that. Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump has attacked his top Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, calling her "crooked," and promised his supporters that he would not bore them by becoming overly presidential. The comments undercut what his aides had said would be an attempt by the notoriously blunt-speaking Trump to project a more serious image after his win in New York's nominating contest this week, including by rolling out more policy details. Trump will give a foreign policy speech on Wednesday at the National Press Club, part of an expanded policy roll-out the campaign is planning, his aides told Republican leaders and lawmakers this week. The speech will come the day after a round of primary contests in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island, in which polls show him likely to do well.
