Trump should definitely sue.
  He isn’t a punk like Bernie Sanders who’s a victim of the same kind of political chicanery on the Democrat side. 

WashingtonExaminer reports Donald Trump is threatening Sunday to sue Ted Cruz over taking his Louisiana delegates, the Republican presidential frontrunner said Sunday.

"Just to show you how unfair Republican primary politics can be, I won the State of Louisiana and get less delegates than Cruz-Lawsuit coming," Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon.

In the Louisiana primary March 5, Trump won with more votes compared to Cruz. Trump won the popular vote, 124,818 votes to 113,949 for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio tallied 33,805 votes — having since dropped out of the race — and Ohio Gov. John Kasich had 19,355.

Originally, Trump and Cruz each got 18 delegates, with five going to Rubio.
But as the Wall Street Journal reported earlier this week, Cruz may wind up with as many as 10 more delegates from the state than the Trump due to out-organizing Trump in the state in the wake of the primary, when the identify of delegates remains to be determined.
