Washington (AFP)

Donald Trump warned Wednesday that "riots" could break out across America if he is denied the Republican presidential nomination despite having won most of the party's primary and caucus elections.

"We're way ahead of everybody. I don't think you can say that we don't get it automatically," Trump told CNN, the morning after his latest round of election victories, in Illinois, North Carolina and Florida.

"I think you would have riots," he said. "You know, I'm representing many, many millions of people."
