Trump damns Cruz-Kasich pact as five more states head into primaries

Donald Trump has decried “collusion” between his Republican rivals to deny him victory in upcoming primary contests as five more states prepared to vote for their preferred presidential candidate.

Trump fumed over the alliance between John Kasich and Ted Cruz to cede upcoming states to each other in the hope that they can stop the frontrunner winning enough delegates to clinch the Republican nomination outright.

Trump attacked Kasich and Cruz as “truly weak” over the strategy whereby Cruz, a Texas senator, will concentrate his resources in Indiana while Kasich, the Ohio governor, will focus on Oregon and New Mexico instead.
