The reaction to Donald Trump's climb to presumptive nominee of the Republican Party for this year's presidential race has been mixed, and those who do not support the outspoken candidate are not hesitating to make sure he knows he isn't welcome in their lives or their businesses. But that doesn't mean it's a done deal.
The first way to attempt to unbind the delegates is to pass a rule saying, simply, that delegates at the 2016 convention may vote for whomever they choose. The U.S. Justice Department investigated and imposed special federal oversight known as a consent decree that remains in force. That gives Trump well over 1,237. "I think everybody understands that they lack the kind of support to pull off what they started out to do".
No one knows quite what to expect at this year's Republican National Convention, but Hutchison says the delegates have been warned. "Because they're afraid that first vote might come through and put enough in his basket that he ends up winning".

A key clause in the rule change seems directly aimed at Trump and states, "The preference of any candidate seeking nomination for president of the United States shall have no bearing upon the submission of names for nomination for vice president of the United States nor the recording of votes for the same". "And that would be exciting news". "I don't think that's the right thing to do it doesn't feel right to me inside".
Cincinnati police spokeswoman Tiffaney Hardy said police will use two-officer patrols throughout the weekend and then will reevaluate.

A group of white nationalists and skinheads who held a rally in Sacramento, California, where at least five people were stabbed say they plan to be at the convention.

"As we have seen in Alabama and other states, Donald Trump has engaged many new voters and has reinvigorated many traditional voters", said Payne, who serves on the RNC Rules Committee. However, should Trump still become the Republican Party's nominee, French argued an independent candidate should still run as an alternative.
