Clinton reached the number of Democratic delegates needed to secure the party’s presidential nomination, US media reported.
The former first lady needed 2 383 delegates to win the nomination ahead of the party’s national convention, and clinched it yesterday, hours before the last major primaries of 2016.
But the potential female commander-in-chief faces stiff opposition from the Republican frontrunner, Donald Trump.
The property mogul turned politician looks set to be the Republican party candidate for the November 8 polls.
Trump has been very vocal on immigration policies, America’s war on terror, and how jobs meant for Americans is outsourced to foreigners.
But his obvious dislike for buitelanders isn’t doing him any favours.
He has even helped opportunistic Chinese entrepreneurs cash-in by selling toilet paper with his various facial expressions on them.
The novelty Trump k** papier comes with the slogan “Dump with Trump”.
Buyers can choose Trump in his many guises - smiling, pointing and of course, pouting.
