ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump took a swipe at the U.S. election process at a campaign rally in Rochester, New York on Sunday, where he said the delegate process was not fair. While front-runner Donald Trump has amassed a delegate lead by winning many state contests, rival Ted Cruz has proved tenacious in pursuit of every last delegate available by other means. Cruz's campaign has worked hard in states where the delegate allocation process is more complex, such as Colorado, where the U.S. senator from Texas garnered 34 delegates on Saturday. The Trump campaign has complained about the nominating process, including in Louisiana, where the New York billionaire Trump won the vote but split the delegates equally with Cruz. "It's a crooked system," Trump said at a large rally in Rochester, New York, on Sunday before saying the process was broken in both major parties and expressing sympathy for Sanders. "Look at Bernie: He wins and wins and wins." Trump said he had warned the Republican National Committee there would be a "big problem" if he does not become the nominee. "We're supposed to be a democracy. We're supposed to be: You vote and it means something."
