The woman replied that she was offended, and Trump quickly repeated the phrase. “Oh, oh really — oh, I’m sorry about that,“ Trump said before turning to a reporter who had asked about Warren, immediately using the term again.

According to an AP count: Trump has reached the number of delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination for president. Trump, the only remaining GOP candidate left in the race, will go on to accept the nomination at the party's national convention in Cleveland. (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley, File)Donald Trump reached the number of delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination for president Thursday, completing an unlikely rise that has upended the political landscape and set the stage for a bitter fall campaign. Trump was put over the top in the Associated Press delegate count by a small number of the party’s unbound delegates who told the AP they would support him at the national convention in July. It takes 1,237 delegates to win the Republican nomination.


He has been called an “intellectual prodigy” and is one of the most influential thinkers and writers in conservative Republican politics. Yuval Levin, founding editor of National Affairs magazine, is also an informal adviser to House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., the most prominent Republican national leader to decline — at least so far — to endorse presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump. Levin also worked as a White House policy adviser to former President George W. Bush and has since been part of a movement within Republican politics to move the party toward a solutions-oriented disposition, in contrast to many in the party whose main goal has been to block the agenda of President Obama and the Democrats.

What Obama should do on tortureLike a lot of two-term presidents nearing the last bend in the road, Barack Obama seems guided by equal parts conviction and whimsy these days, without much regard for political consequence. The president has expounded publicly on race and political civility, shaken hands with a Cuban Castro, commuted a slew of sentences for drug offenders, plunged the federal government into the debate over transgender Americans in restrooms. Obama clearly isn’t going to declassify the full text of the Senate’s mammoth, landmark report on torture, and maybe that’s the right call — I don’t know.

Dust off the lawn chairs and get the popcorn ready: Donald Trump says he’s willing to debate Bernie Sanders before the June 7 California primary. During a Wednesday night appearance on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Trump said he would accept the Vermont senator’s challenge to a one-on-one debate as long money raised for the event goes to charity. Trump is the presumptive GOP nominee and Sanders is facing increasingly daunting odds in the Democratic primary.
