If a certain Republican presidential candidate doesn't secure 1,237 delegates before the Republican National Convention, things could really get interesting. 

And, according to front-runner Donald Trump, there could even be "riots" if delegates go back on their pledges. 

"If we're 100 short and we're at 1,100 and somebody else is at 500 or 400 ... I don't think you can say that we don't get it automatically. I think you would have riots. I think you would have riots," Trump told CNN

And New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a Trump endorser, agrees. He said late Tuesday, prior to Trump's interview on CNN, a brokered convention would be "very dangerous." 

Trump is no stranger to seeing violence at his political rallies. He canceled one in Chicago last week, citing security concerns. 

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office also considered charging Trump with inciting a riot after a protester was punched in the face at a Fayetteville, North Carolina, rally last week. The office decided against it. 

Trump took home wins in multiple primaries on Mega Tuesday, including a big 99-delegate, winner-take-all race in Florida.
