Donald Trump Is ‘Presumptive Nominee’ of Republicans


US presidential candidate Donald Trump has performed outstandingly in all five Republican primaries on Tuesday which has prompted him to believe that he is the “presumptive nominee” from Republican Party.

“I consider myself the presumptive nominee, absolutely. If you look. Honestly, Sen. Cruz and Gov. Kasich should really get out of the race. They have no path to victory at all. … We should heal the Republican Party, bring the Republican Party together. And I’m a unifier,” Trump said as quoted by the Washington Post.

Besides Trump winning over 150 delegates, the Democrat representative, former US State Secretary Hillary Clinton, appears to be performing well as she won four out of the five states on Tuesday. According to Vox, the Northeastern GOP primaries have been the strength of Trump from a long time, but the proportion of the win still astonished US citizens. Tuesday’s battle indicated a very close fight between the two rivals in the US presidential elections 2016.

Following her chances to win the US elections, she spoke to her supporters in Philadelphia where she expressed her primary goals, including attacking the Republican candidate. “Whether you support Sen. Sanders or you support me, there’s much more that unites us than divides us,” Clinton said. She later claimed the creation of an America where “love trumps hate.”

The Republican candidate, on the other hand, addressed a press conference at Trump Tower in New York. “This is a lot bigger win than we would have expected. All five. And not only is it all five,” he said. He stressed on his attainment of the 60 percent proportion in results from several states. “When you crack 60, with three people, that’s very hard to do … That’s called a massive landslide.”

Trump is scheduled to visit Indiana on Wednesday where the votes will be cast on May 3. This is reportedly the final best chance for Trump to register his win over his rivals.
