Donald Trump now officially Republican nominee

CLEVELAND (WSLS 10) - Donald Trump has officially been named the Republican nominee.

During Tuesday night's Republican National Convention, Trump received more than the required 1,237 delegates to clinch the nomination.

Trump's son Donald Jr. cast the final votes his father needed to become the Republican presidential nominee.

The younger Trump was on the floor of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland and told the excited activists in the auditorium that New York was casting 89 votes for Trump and six for Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

He then shouted out: "Congratulations, Dad, we love you."

Donald Jr. says he's watched as his father has built a movement and he says that movement has given Americans a voice again.

Also on the convention floor are some of Donald Trump's other children, including Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump.

Delegates on the floor broke into cheers and waved signs as the song "New York, New York" played at the Quicken Loans Arena.

The convention ends Thursday.
