- Donald Trump has been campaigning far and wide to be nominated by the Republican Party as its official candidate for the November 2016 US presidential elections.
- Donald Trump was officially made by the Republican Party as its presidential nominee.
- Not all Republicans were happy with Donald Trump’s nomination.
There’s no stopping Donald Trump in seeking his bid for the US presidential elections on November. The Republican Party has officially nominated the New York magnate, who will battle head-to-head with the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
Trump has been neck and neck with other republican candidates including Ted Cruz, who is his greatest contender, Marco Rubio, John Kasich and Ben Carson. After having won against these other republican hopefuls, Trump finally got himself the party’s official nomination.
“It’s my honor to be able to throw Donald Trump over the top in the delegation count tonight,” said Donald Trump, Jr., who apparently was very proud of his dad running for the 2016 US presidential elections.
“It’s unbelievable. It’s surreal. I’m so proud of my father. I’m so proud. We all are,” said Ivanka, Trump’s eldest daughter and perceived as Trump’s protégée when it comes to having the knack for business.
While some were happily beaming at the cameras, there were a number of people who weren’t so enthusiastic about Trump’s nomination. There were some states which apparently tried to thwart Trump’s victory considering that the only primary driving force behind his nomination was obviously New York, which gave him the edge over his competitors.
The Washington, D.C. delegation was among those that were not so happy. Some states which voted for either Rubio or Cruz ended up giving their votes to Trump because both suspended their campaigns.
In Washington D.C. alone, 10 votes originally went to Marco Rubio, and 9 votes to John Kasich. However, the convention rules states that all the 19 votes must go to Trump. The same thing happened in Alaska, where 12 votes were given to Ted Cruz, 11 to Donald Trump and 5 to Marco Rubio, but according to the rules, the 28 votes must be credited to Trump.
While Trump and his family are enjoying the recent Republican Party official nomination, there are still many people who are clearly disconcerted at the thought of Donald Trump, bearing the name of the Republican Party comes the November elections. - SD, Kami Media
