Donald Trump says he believes Republican lawmakers who are opposed to his campaign are "taking advantage of our country."

During a Fox News town hall Wednesday, the Republican presidential front-runner addressed the American Enterprise Institute World Forum, which took place at a private island resort off the coast of Georgia over the weekend.

The gathering was reportedly attended by the likes of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Paul Ryan and other Republican congressmen.

And apparently, the main topic was how to stop Trump.

"They're all flying in because, you know, they don't want to have strong borders. They want stuff flowing across the borders. They don't want to have taxation when countries treat us unfairly because they benefit from that," Trump said.

But despite the intensifying resistance to his campaign among Republican leaders, Trump easily defeated his GOP rivals in the Michigan and Mississippi presidential primaries Tuesday and won the Hawaii caucuses.
