Trump reaches delegate count for Republican nomination

Donald Trump notched up his 1,238th committed Republican delegate Thursday, carrying him across the threshold to clinch the party’s presidential nomination.
Trump needed a majority 1,237 delegates out of the 2,472 at stake to tie up the nomination in advance of the Republican national convention in Cleveland in July. The nomination will not officially be conferred until the convention.
Trump was boosted over the line Thursday by a group of unbound and previously uncommitted delegates who decided to board his train.
