ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Donald Trump addresses the Republican National Convention (RNC) by video feed after securing the party's presidential nomination, telling delegates it has been a "special day" and one he will "never forget". Earlier Trump officially secured enough delegates to win the party's 2016 nomination for the White House. During a roll-call vote Trump's eldest child, Donald Trump Jr., announced the support of New York, their home state, ensuring Trump had the majority of delegates - 1,237 - needed to contest the November 8 U.S. presidential election against presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. "We've achieved historic results, with the largest vote total in the history of the Republican party," said Trump via video link on a screen over the convention stage. "This is a movement, but we have to go all the way." Trump repeated his familiar campaign promises about building a border wall and creating jobs, before concluding with his campaign slogan. "Together, most importantly, we are going to make America great again," Trump said.
