13. They can but it's hard to imagine they would. It would start with the rules committtee

They would pass some sort of rule that had the effect of disqualifying Trump and then it would be an open and contested convention. The trick is, a majority of the delegates to the convention have to approve the rules committees rules for the convention and guess whose delegates are the majority of the convention due to the voting?

So Trump would have to do something so egregious that most of his delegates would want someone else to be the nominee.
