A Watershed Moment

This week, Donald Trump, presumptive presidential nominee for the Republican Party, had a watershed moment. This moment occurred Tuesday night, when he won decisively in Indiana against Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, and Cruz responded by bowing out of the race. Based on Trump’s appearance, he was surprised by Cruz’s announcement.

After hearing of Cruz’s decision to suspend his campaign, Trump described him as “one hell of a competitor” and said he “had a great future.” In his address, Trump expressed gratitude to his supporters, and appeared magnanimous to his rivals. In short, he acted presidential.
