Donald Trump has won the Republican Party’s nomination to contest the next presidential election on November 8.

During a roll-call vote at the the Republican Convention in Cleveland, Trump secured the majority of delegates -1,237 – needed to run for the White House.

The vote to put Trump’s name in nomination took place one day after opponents staged a failed attempt to force a vote opposing his candidacy.

His rival is set to be Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton once she has been formally nominated at her party’s convention next week.
