Donald Trump May Be Presumptive, But He’s Not The Nominee

Published

Donald Trump

 

In his victory speech on Tuesday, after sweeping all five of the Northeast primaries, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump declared himself the “presumptive nominee.” And as much as his cadre of clapping seals liked it, the statement is, like most things out of Donald’s mouth, self-serving …and wholly untrue.

Let me take a moment to give a personal aside to his Trumptastic presumptuousness.

You see, Donald, despite winning in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island, you still lack the 1,237 delegates required to secure the nomination.

It is true that his last remaining challengers, Ted Cruz and John Kasich, cannot gain enough delegates to win outright before the convention, but that does not mean that Trump wins by default with a plurality. His Trumpness mustn’t assume he wins just because his competition cannot claim the crown before the convention– because neither can he.

Permit my esteemed friend Ben Shapiro to explain below:

Now, that being said, IF Trump triumphs in Indiana and California his presumption will become reality.

But a mighty big obstacle sits in his way, he will not “Cruz” to victory, if you catch my drift.

The Texas senator has an impressive grassroots operation focused on electing delegates who are friendly to Cruz. This is a stroke of tactical brilliance, so long as it does not distract from winning the two remaining states to block Trump’s nomination.

On the first ballot at the convention, all pledged delegates will be obligated to vote in the way their states decided. These are the  numbers you’ve seen tossed about everywhere: Trump 950, Cruz 560, Kasich 153. BUT after the first ballot, those delegates can start to decide for themselves.

And this is  precisely why it matters who the delegates actually are. This is the game Cruz has been cleverly winning. Meaning if Cruz and Kasich succeed in forcing a convention, Cruz and not Trump, will be in position to clinch the GOP nomination on the second or third ballot.

And already we’ve seen Cruz move in a direction to block Trump in California, which will play a crucial role in determining whether or not a convention nomination will be needed.

By announcing Carly Fiorina as his choice for a runningmate if nominated, he sends a clear signal to California that he has them in mind. Fiorina is very popular with West Coast Republicans, and connected enough to possibly bring much needed support for the June GOP primary in the Golden State.

And California’s 172 delegates could be enough for their primary to play the role of king maker. In fact if Cruz does well enough in California he could even overcome losses in Indiana and Nebraska if misfortune befell him there in May.

It’s a hearty enough amount to either allow Trump to cross the threshold before the convention, or block him and force a second ballot, in which the current under dog becomes the favorite to become the nominee.

The bottom line is that Trump presumes too much by asserting his status as a nominee in waiting, because this fight isn’t over by a long shot.

    what is the think in life so love it

  • Patricia says:

    The only ones who don’t want him to be the nominee are the GOP who evidently are pretty corrupted. Trump is the only candidate that tells it like it is and pulls no punches and he does have a leadership quality to better our country. You can’t buy Trump, that in itself is a giant plus, a means of corruption is part of buying a president and keep him from doing what’s right, something which has been going on for many years and look where we are from all the illegal things going on in our government.

    He has the popular vote, and we are tired of the Republican hierarchy manipulating the vote.

  • John Gridley says:

    Strictly wishful thinking on your part.

  • david freeland says:

    he is well ahead of Cruz, and unless there are more inappropriate actions he should be the clear choice

  • gilbert marek says:

    Let me tell you first off, If trump doesn’t get it, There is going to be one 0f the biggest out break of people you ever saw in your life. He’s a hard ass and knows what its going to take to get our country back like it was. Look what the Mexicans did in California, That’s a show to tell you they want to take us over like they did in Texas, But got there ass kicked but good. For God and Country, Love it or leave it.

  • Jack Bracer says:

    Just a look to almost 8 years behind us of what president and government have achieved
    NOTHING! And now so much fuzz about a man who’s not a “professional”, but has the right idea’s. Stop the nonsense and give it a chance. Is Cruz any better? Hillary? Kasich?C’mon now!

  • Ben Shapiro Sucks says:

    Go fuck yourself and lay off Trump. Ben Shapiro is a sell out punk

  • Donald Richard says:

    Donald Trump has expanded the Republican base, has millions more votes than Romney had when he was nominated, and has taken NO money from special interests that has made our Party corrupt. The promises made to the people are second to the donors and career establishment that don’t want their boat rocked,

  • george nases sr says:

    he will be

  • thomas aiello says:

    watch and you shall see.

  • Gary D Flatt says:

    Trump is our only chance to retain ANY chance to keep our Freedoms. I just hope that the cigarette burns on the heirloom furniture in the Whitehouse can be repaired.

  • Bill Scott says:

    Of the total votes cast, Mr.Trump does not have the majority of votes. If he does not get to 1237, then he will lose on the second or third ballot. As Mr. Cruz knows “it’s not over till the fat lady sings.”

  • Kenneth McLellan says:

    I feel Donald is a serious demagogue, but not a realistic candidate. The overwhelming negatives he would need to win a general election, preclude him as a choice. Ted Cruz is a man who has stood up for the values I think are important in both the US Senate and in arguments before the Supreme Court. Carly Fiorina is a well-spoken and straight-thinking person, who would probably demolish whomever she faces in a one-on-one debate. Both her and Ted Cruz’s political values align with mine. Donald Trump’s values are not as clear or conservative

  • John says:

    I don’t believe Trump is a real conservative. He has supported too many liberal democrats in the past. Cruz usually keeps his word and stands up against the insiders.

  • Barbara Boone says:

    We the people are tired of the way things have been going. Donald Trump seems to our hope for things to be brought to right.

  • Derrick says:

    In this interview Donald Trump proves himself to be the most qualified man apparently in the world to be the leader of the United States or anywhere else in the western world outside of Russia today. If you know whats really going on in the world give this a watch and see for yourself. He see’s what others refuse to see. This is the effect of not needing or lusting after the things that buy politicians and media members throughout the world. These Media people are clearly a large part of the problem. How could anyone really be so stupid as to ignore such an obvious threat and undermine the safety of their own country? The root of all evil: the love of money is how. The Saudis are buying these media scumbags off like wholesale cow dung. They are the fertilizer being used to grow these tares among the wheat … Matthew 13:24-30
    24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
    25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
    26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
    27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
    28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
    29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
    30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn….. Click the following link to see the Trump interview..http://bit.ly/1ZYg8za
