Donald Trump a real-estate developer, TV personality, and political novice has secured the nomination of the Republican Party to become the next US president after months of controversial campaigning that has divided the American right of the political spectrum.

The candidate’s home state of New York cast the votes that put Trump over the 1,237 delegates needed to claim the nomination, with his son Donald Trump Jr. announcing the state’s tally.

The House Speaker, Paul Ryan, urged delegates to unite behind Mr Trump, a day after splits in the party were evident as the convention opened.

The Trump campaign also faces accusations a speech by Mr Trump’s wife Melania on Monday was plagiarized.
