Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has bullied his way to the top of the race over recent months, and on Monday, he extended his reach into the world of professional sports.

Via his favorite medium -- Twitter -- Trump claims to have recently discovered that members of the Ricketts family, which owns the Chicago Cubs, has been "secretly spending $'s" against him. To which he responds: the family may have some skeletons in the closet.

Trump unfortunately couldn't resort to his trademark Twitter quip of calling them "losers," now that the team is projected to be among the best teams in the league in 2016. But this mysterious claim is interesting to say the least -- if there's any truth to it.
