The real estate tycoon, turned reality show star, turned politician has officially become the Republican nominee for the 2016 Presidential Election. According to reports, Trump surpassed the 1,237 delegates needed to clench the nomination.
Such a great honor to be the Republican Nominee for President of the United States. I will work hard and never let you down! AMERICA FIRST!

Donald Trump Jr grew emotional while speaking to CNN stating casting his fathers name at the top of the delegates was a surreal feeling. “One of the more surreal moments of my life other perhaps than the birth of my children. To be able to do that is historic, its awesome,” Donald Trump Jr said. “It’s pretty real.”
News of Trump’s official appointment didn’t go over well with a few people.
Republicans are going to have “remember when you said Donald Trump should be president?” thrown in their faces for the rest of their lives.
