Businessman and former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said those in the GOP who are trying to stop Donald Trump from winning the party's nod are "delusional."
"The anti-Trump movement – they are still insanely delusional that they can stop Trump," Cain told Fox News on April 27, according to Breitbart.
Just one day before, on April 26, Trump won all five primary states voting that day by large margins. These big wins solidified Trump's already substantial lead over the two other Republican candidates, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Gov. John Kasich of Ohio.
"The voice of the people is being heard," Cain added. "You can’t come back now and say, 'OK, I don’t like Trump so I’m not going to get behind the nominee.' I think that is foolish and if they break up the Republican Party by continuing to push back, they will be responsible for a Hillary [Clinton] presidency, not the people screaming that they want a leader, a winner and a fighter."
This isn't the first time Cain has defended Trump on television. On March 1, after Trump posted big wins in the primary season's first "Super Tuesday," Cain ridiculed the GOP for not taking Trump seriously.
"I believe that the establishment needs to get over it and just allow the people to speak, and so far 285 delegates — that’s not a fluke," Cain told Fox News, according to Politico.
"The party is expanding," Cain added. "They ought to be celebrating what Donald Trump is doing for the Republican Party at this particular point, but instead they’re pushing back."
Cain, best-known before his 2012 presidential bid for being the former CEO of the Godfather's pizza chain, also worked as chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City and served as an economic adviser for the 1996 presidential campaign of former Republican Sen. Bob Dole of Kansas.
