We are now at 1001 delegates. We will win on the first ballot and are not wasting time and effort on other ballots because system is rigged!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 29 April 2016
Trump needs 1,237 delegates to guarantee his nomination at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio in July.
The 2016 US presidential election will take place in November.
