Jeremy Peters: ‘The Only Person Who Can Hurt Donald Trump Is Donald Trump’

‘You’re talking about somebody who can’t barely go five days without creating a massive controversy’

PETERS: "In order to have a contested convention, you need to have contestants and right now you don’t have that. I think Ted Cruz would see himself as somebody who would be a rightful heir to just kind of step in here, but I don’t think Ted Cruz has much easier of a time getting to a majority of delegates at convention than Donald Trump does. He’s not exactly a unifying figure. And I think what all this points to is once again, the only person who can hurt Donald Trump is Donald Trump."
