John Kasich won one state, Ohio which he is govener of, and was able to amass only 153 delegates which would not have been able to gain him the Republican nomination.
John Kasich was hoping for a brokered convention in which no one candidate had gained the amount of delegates needed to claim the Republican nomination.
Now all candidates except Donald Trump have suspended their campaigns there will not be a brokered convention and Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee.
In January MPs debated about allowing Donald Trump into the UK.
David Cameron has continued to refuse to apologise to Mr.Trump for comments about his immigration policy.
Mr.Cameron has however stated that respect should be given to anyone who fights in the primaries to become their parties nominee.
