Nearly all of the relevant news sources have come out to report that Donald Trump has acquired the delegates needed to become the selected Republican Candidate for US Presidency.
The Guardian have stated that ”thanks to some unpledged delegates boarding the ‘Trump Train’, Donald Trump now has 1,238 delegates – one more than he needed to clinch the Republican presidential nomination – and – confetti.”
Furthermore, the ”other republican presidential hopefuls need to win 1,237 delegates to secure the party’s nomination. These include pledged delegates, which are awarded through state primary and caucus votes, and unbound delegates, which consist of party elites who can vote however they choose.
However, trump is miles ahead in terms of delegates with the closest rival being Ted Cruz on 559/1238, however his campaign is currently suspended.
What’s YOUR view of this?
Now that Trump has enough delegates, surely he will be the chosen one to become the Republican candidate for presidency? Who do you think he will compete against from the Democrats Party for overall presidency, Bernie Sanders or Hilary Clinton? Will Trump make a good president if he is eventually elected?
