Ben Carson lashed out against the Republican National Convention on Friday, culminating in a threat to leave the party if rumors of a brokered GOP convention prove true.

On Thursday, The Washington Post reported that several high ranking GOP delegates met to discuss the possibility of a brokered convention, meetings Carson claimed would eventually “destroy the party.”

“If it is correct, every voter who is standing for change must know they are being betrayed. I won’t stand for it,” Carson said in a Thursday statement. “I assure you Donald Trump won’t be the only one leaving the party.”

“I am prepared to lose fair and square, as I am sure is Donald,” Carson said. “But I will not sit by and watch a theft. I intend on being the nominee. If I am not, the winner will have my support. If the winner isn’t our nominee then we have a massive problem.”
