Republicans formally nominate Donald J. Trump for president

CLEVELAND, OHIO (KUSI) — Donald Trump official won the Republican nomination for president Tuesday night.

New York pushed Trump over the top with the winning delegates. His son, Donald Trump Jr. was the delegate who announced the votes.

"I have the incredible honor of, not only being a part of the ride that’s been this election process, and to watch as a small fly on the wall, what my father has done in creating this movement because it’s not a campaign anymore. It’s a movement," Trump Jr. said. "Speaking to real Americans, giving them a voice again and it is my honor to be able to throw Donald Trump over the top in the delegate count tonight with 89 delegates and another six for John Kasich. Congratulations Dad, we love you!" 

In the meantime, Trump’s campaign is still on the defense.

Critics say Melania Trump’s speech Monday night bears an unmistakable resemblance to the one Michelle Obama gave the Democratic National Convention in 2008.

The Trump campaign said no disciplinary action will be taken against the speech writer.

But some are saying the similarities cannot be denied.

Many people across the nation are calling for Melania Trump to clarify if she used Michelle Obama’s speech as an outline for hers.

Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski said the speech writer should be fired.

On top of that, the legendary rock band, "Queen," said they are upset Donald Trump defied their wishes and used their song, "We are the Champions."

Back in June, the band’s lead guitarist Brian May wrote to the Trump campaign, saying he cannot use the band’s music.

The band tweeted against last night, "An unauthorized use at the Republican Convention against our wishes."

May also said Freddie Mercury, the lead singer of the band, who died from AIDS in the eighties, would be upset that people with, "anti-LGBT agenda’s are using his music."
