The Libertarian Ticket, Delegate Count Puts Trump Over the Top

Donald Trump surpassed the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination. But can he unite the Republican Party behind him? Molly Ball of The Atlantic and Michael Scherer of TIME Magazine examine Trump’s tactics on the campaign trail, which include insulting Democrats and Republicans alike. Meanwhile, Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton faces criticism after a State Department report revealed the former Secretary of State violated recordkeeping rules by using her private email server. POLITICO’s Josh Gerstein explains the effect of what he calls her “zombie problem” on her presidential campaign. Despite being behind in the delegate count, Clinton’s Democratic opponent Bernie Sanders continues to draw stadium-sized crowds to his political rallies. Plus, what’s next for Sanders’s revolution after the presidential election? And President Obama became the first sitting president to visit Hiroshima since World War II. Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times details the president’s pivot to Asia and the purpose of this “open wounds tour.”
