Billionaire GOP Presumptive Nominee Donald Trump is storming his way to the nominating convention.

As predicted here. Trump will surpass 1,400 delegates on the first ballot when all is said and done.

On Thursday afternoon Trump surpassed the required 1,237 committed delegates necessary to win on the first ballot.

He currently has 1,239 delegates according to The Associated Press.

The reason? More than 20 unbound delegates from several states formally committed to supporting Trump.

Five more states, including the delegate rich states of California and New Jersey, will cast primary ballots on June 7.

Here’s a summary of the latest rumblings from both republican and democrat sides:

  • Trump has already started raising money for the Republican National Committee (RNC), while mega donors continue to commit to donating to Super-Pac’s and the RNC.
  • Mitt Romney, after ending his quest to unseat Trump, resumed making a fool out of himself, by renewing his call for a third party candidacy. This man will be the new cocktail party joke.
  • National and battleground state polling has been trending Trump’s way big time! Pennsylvania and Ohio are clearly in play.
  • A newly-released State Department Inspector General’s Report on Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server ended up delivering a solid blow to the presumptive Democrat nominee. The report, penned by democrat appointee’s, contradicts Clinton’s assertion that she did nothing wrong and had permission to have the server in use. In other words. She lied.
  • The IG Report places more pressure on the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to recommend criminal charges against Clinton.
  • A growing chorus of Democrat members of Congress are expressing there desire to see Democrat National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz leave her position. Wasserman-Schultz does however have the support of Clinton, at least for the moment.
  • Florida U.S. Senator Marco Rubio and Former Pennsylvania U.S. Senator Rick Santorum both endorsed Trump this week.
