Trump shifts to Clinton after claiming GOP delegate majority

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Presidential candidate Donald Trump is armed at last with a majority of the Republican Party's delegates, and he is shifting his attention toward the general election while Hillary Clinton remains locked in a divisive Democratic primary contest.

Trump's good news has been tempered by ongoing internal problems, including the sudden departure of his political director and continuing resistance by many Republican leaders to his outsider candidacy.

Clinton is facing fresh questions about her use of a private email server while secretary of state even as she fights to pivot toward Trump, whom she called an "unqualified loose cannon."

Trump sealed his delegate majority Thursday by claiming a small number of the party's unbound delegates who told The Associated Press they would support him at the national convention in July.
