As John Kasich drops out of the Republican race for the White House, Donald Trump becomes the party’s presumptive nominee.

A presumptive nominee is a candidate who has the assurance of becoming the nominee for their party but  is yet to be confirmed.

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.

Mr.Cameron has however stated that respect should be given to anyone who fights in the primaries to become their parties nominee.
