NEW YORK (FOX5NY) - GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump called into Good Day New York on Wednesday as he continues his run for the White House. The Republican front-runner says he is leading in New York.
"We are leading by a lot. I love New Yorkers. I love this whole state, this city. I've employed thousands and thousands of people over the years. When I look at the polls, it feels good," said Trump.
Despite his success, the NY Times reported Tuesday that Trump's campaign has a "deficiency" and is giving rival Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) increased momentum.
"It's a rigged system. In Colorado, the people did not get to vote. It (delegates) was picked by politicians. The NY Times should focus in managing itself. They lose a fortune. I read that story and had to laugh to myself. I won twice the number of states. I've won millions of votes more than the second place person, Ted Cruz, who hates New York. I have spent a fraction of the money that all of these other characters have spent," said Trump.
The real estate mogul has also been criticized for not being prepared for the possible ramifications of the way delegates are determined in some states.
"I think that these people, their mind was already made up. They were just delegates that were picked and the people doing the picking are the people on the establishment side," said Trump.
