Donald Trump, the presumptive presidential nominee for the Republican party, has inched even closer to the nomination after taking home wins in both Nebraska and West Virginia on Tuesday.
The businessman has all but clinched the nomination for the Republican party, amassing a total of 1,107 delegates out of the 1,237 needed to take the party to the general election in November.
Even though it is not official, party stakeholders such as Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus have declared Trump as the nominee.
Trump’s success in securing the presidential nomination and slowly moving toward the general election has divided the party.
Officials such as House Speaker Paul Ryan and Florida Sen. Jeb Bush have spoken out, saying they refuse to support Trump while former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer — who has been dubbed as a potential Trump VP — said Republicans who don’t support the billionaire need to “get over it.”
