The mainstream media is constantly reporting that the GOP presidential race is headed towards a contested convention this summer in Cleveland, but a newly-leaked internal memo from the Trump campaign has confirmed that this definitely will not be happening.
The memo was reportedly obtained by The Washington Post, and it was sent around to Trump campaign insiders and supporters. According to Conservative Tribune, the memo said that the campaign staff believes Trump will have 1,400 delegates going into the convention, which is far more than the 1,237 needed to secure the nomination on the first ballot.
The memo also blamed Senator Ted Cruz himself for the misinformation that Trump is going to fall short of the 1,237 delegates he needs.
“The Cruz spin machine produces more lies than anything else,” the memo read. “Our projections call for us to accumulate over 1400 delegates and thus a first ballot nomination win in Cleveland.”

This matches what Trump said in his victory speech in New York on Tuesday night, when he said he will get more delegates than anyone could have predicted “in their wildest imaginations.”
The memo suggested that the Trump campaign viewed the New York victory as a turning point, since the business mogul won 60 percent of the vote and took 89 out of 92 available delegates, far more than most of the polls had predicted. They also instructed Trump supporters to go after the GOP establishment, since they believe that is the one thing stopping Trump from getting the nomination.
“The RNC has a lot to answer for as do those who are part of the donor class and the party establishment,” the memo said. “This movement scares the hell out of them and the people scare them, so they will do whatever they can to keep power.”
