May 26, 2016 - On this date New York Businessman Donald Trump has done what had seem impossible when he declared for the presidency on June 16 ,2015 and that is clinch the Republican Party 2016 nomination for President of The United States.
Trump now has the 1,237 delegates needed to win the nomination on the first ballot at the Republican National Convention to be held in July in Cleveland, Ohio.
It wasn't that long ago that Trump's two remaining GOP primary opponents Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and Ohio Governor John Kasich were saying that Trump would never reach the majority of delegates needed to win the nomination.
Now Trump, with California and New Jersey scheduled to hold their presidential primaries on June 7, will arrive at the convention with in excess of 1,400 delegates.
It has been a remarkable and bruising presidential primary process as Trump had to defeat a record 16 opponents to get the GOP nod. Here is a look in a 2016 Republican Party presidential campaign button montage of the candidates Trump defeated on the road to Cleveland.
and the winner is Donald Trump!!!!
