Donald Trump Returns to the Trail

After a brief hiatus, the presumptive Republican nominee is back.

He begins his trip in New Mexico, traveling next to California, North Dakota, Montana and ends in San Diego. Though he has no remaining opponents, Trump has not yet clinched the number of delegates needed to secure the nomination.

“He’s not going to take one vote for granted,” one campaign official told ABC News.

His last visit to California was an acrimonious one; he was met by so many protesters outside of San Francisco that he was forced to avert them by walking around fencing up a grassy hill.

"That was not the easiest entrance I've ever made... it felt like I was crossing the border actually," Trump joked at the beginning of his remarks.

While his campaign is prepared for the protests, officials stress that his supporters will see the same Trump they’ve always supported, noting that the themes that have accounted for his ascent to the top of the ticket will remain, including building a wall separating the U.S. from Mexico.

And aside from his rallies, Trump will also begin to fundraise more, abandoning finally his pledge to “self-fund” his campaign.

But for now, albeit technically, he’s still a candidate; officials say that Trump’s public schedule will remain vigorous until then.
