Donald Trump has a fresh moniker: Presumptive Nominee.
He wears it in style, as with his Trump ties and cufflinks.
Sure beats Trump Just Might Be The Nominee.
Trump fans got tired of that as far back as last summer. Even then they knew he was a lock to head the Republican presidential ticket.
Now with his knockout of Cruz and Kasich, Trump stands alone in the GOP ring.
And when he enters the Oval Office about 250 days hence, he'll get crackin' on Making America Great Again by:
Building the wall. Congress already said OK 10 years ago to the border barricade. Now the Trump Tower Titan will put his talent to work on the demarcation, replete with sending the bill to Mexico. How to make the Mexicans pay? As DonaldJTrump.com details, America will "impound all remittance payments derived from illegal wages; increase fees on all temporary visas issued to Mexican CEOs and diplomats (and if necessary cancel them); increase fees on all border crossing cards – of which we issue about 1 million to Mexican nationals each year (a major source of visa overstays); increase fees on all NAFTA worker visas from Mexico (another major source of overstays); and increase fees at ports of entry to the United States from Mexico."

Braking illegal immigration. Right away, criminal aliens will get tossed and sanctuary cities will draw no more federal bucks. Savings are in the offing, says Trump's site: "Applicants for entry to the United States should be required to certify that they can pay for their own housing, health care and other needs before coming to the U.S." That should end the outrageous freebie demands of illegals at hospitals and other costly facilities. And drive more punchlines from Twitter's @WriteInTrump parody comic, who wrote, "I love Hispanics so much that when I'm elected I'm going to give millions of them an all expense paid trip to their homeland."
Axing taxes. Businesses will see their payments plummet to 15% from 35%. So they won'tbe tempted to leave heavy-handed America for open arms overseas.
Trashing terror. ISIS will be WASWAS quicker than you can say NO PRISONERS. And the Syrian Trojan Horse trotting to our country will do an about-face. Two million Muslims have already swamped our land since 9/11, with many yearning for berkahs and the rest of Shariah hell. Trump's message: America First, not Worst.
More specifics are coming as we head for . Trump will nail down his points and even miss, as he did the other day in Costa Mesa, Calif., telling us we numbered 31,000 when really the amphitheater held 8,700. But, as he says, these are minor details.
What counts is the vote number on Election Day, leading to the ultimate title: President Trump.
