If Trump doesn't get his act together, GOP leaders might bail

People like Donald Trump who run businesses themselves understand why our economy is stuck in low gear argues Betsy McCaughey

Trump won the GOP contest as other Republican candidates remained on the ballot even though they dropped out of the race.

Johnson said his late father, Donald E. Johnson, was an Army veteran who served in World War II and was part of a unit which was the first to encounter and liberate the Nazi concentration camps. Winning in North Dakota encouraged the Sanders campaign.

Technically, it's still not over on either side.

Clovis said he has been impressed by Trump's intellect, his business background that included working blue-collar jobs in his formative years and his ability to speak to "the common person, the rank-and-file, the working stiff, in a way that they understand". This election isn't about Republican or Democrats, it is about the people who run this country: "the special interest or the people, the American people", Trump said, according to WMAR, Baltimore.

Secretary of State John Kerry, whose bid to unseat George W. Bush in 2004 ended in defeat, extended his congratulations to Clinton on Wednesday, saying she "will make a terrific president" and hailing her achievement as "a truly historic moment".

"I am going to give a major speech on probably Monday of next week and we're going to be discussing all of the things that have taken place with the Clintons", he said.

Trump promised to deliver a speech next week focusing on "the Clintons".

Clinton is the first woman to win the nomination of a major political party for president. "And the stakes in this election are high, and the choice is clear", she said - before launching into a frontal attack on her Republican rival.

As for whether he remains officially unaffiliated, as he re-registered Tuesday, he will wait and see. No matter one's political persuasion, that is a very big deal.

The contests Tuesday give the billionaire mogul a high-profile way to pivot from several hard days in which members of his own party almost unanimously ordered him to cease his criticism of an American-born judge based on the jurist's ethnicity.

But Trump refused entreaties from party leaders to disavow his charge that U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel was showing bias because of his Mexican heritage and should recuse himself from a lawsuit alleging fraud at Trump's defunct Trump University real estate training school. GOP leaders made clear that their support - most of it lukewarm - was conditioned on the understanding that he lead that reunification, stat.

Illinois Sen. Mark Kirk, who is locked in a close re-election fight, became the first lawmaker to pull his endorsement of Trump.

Ryan's backing of Trump comes a day after he blasted the businessman's remarks about a federal judge as a "textbook definition of a racist comment". "I think what you heard today was what has been on her mind of a long time".

Hillary Clinton has secured enough pledged delegates and superdelegates combined to secure the Democratic nomination.

"It is unfortunate that my comments have been misconstrued as a categorical attack against people of Mexican heritage", he said."I do not feel that one's heritage makes them incapable of being impartial".
