Trump: 'I Consider Myself the Presumptive Nominee



NEW YORK — If you ask Donald Trump, he's the "presumptive" Republican presidential nominee.

"I consider myself the presumptive nominee. Absolutely," Trump said at his victory rally in Trump Tower Tuesday night as he advocated that GOP rivals Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich should end their presidential bids.

Trump later added that he believed the Republican Party also views him as the "presumptive nominee."

While Trump is still shy of the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the GOP presidential nomination, the billionaire businessman's bold assertion came as he swept all five of the Acela primary states Tuesday night — and by large margins.
