Trump, who will apparently be the Republican presidential candidate for the 2016 election, spoke last night (Thursday) in North Dakota, after he received the number of delegates needed to become the Republican presidential nominee.

Trump also commented on US President Barack Obama’s criticism of him. In Japan, Obama said that world leaders are “rattled” by Trump’s popularity. “When you rattle something, that’s good,” said Trump. “Many of the countries in our world … have been absolutely abusing us and [taking] advantage of us. We’re going to have great relationships with these countries, but if they’re rattled in a friendly way, that’s a good thing … not a bad thing.”

Although Trump has not received the official nomination, because the Republican Party is expected to meet only in July, he already reached the delegate count needed to become the nominee- 1,237.

Regarding Hillary Clinton, Trump said last night: “Here I am, watching Hillary fight and she can’t close the deal.”
