Why no more debates, Mr. Trump?

What happens if you don’t get the majority of delegates before the convention? Should you get the nomination anyway?
“I think we’ll win before getting to the convention, but if we didn’t and we’re 20 votes short, or we’re, you know, a hundred short, and we’re at 1,100 and somebody else is at 500 or 400, cause we’re way ahead of everybody, I don’t think you can say we don’t get it automatically. I think you’d have riots.” He added that “if you disenfranchise those people . . . I think you would have problems like you’ve never seen before.”
Who are you consulting with on national security matters? Presidents and candidates for the presidency typically build a brain trust of accomplished knowledgeable people in foreign affairs. Who are the ones you’re talking with?
