Donald J. Trump has formally been announced as the nominee of the Republican Party in the US 2016 presidential election.

Mr Trump is expected to accept the nomination on Thursday after state delegates formally selected him.

Republicans' officials also nominated Mike Pence as the party's choice for vice-president after a state-by-state vote at the party convention.

Meanwhile, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier has said Donald Trump , having clinched the Republican Party's nomination for the Nov. 8 presidential election, threatens U.S. and world security with his politics of fear and isolation.

Steinmeier told Reuters in a written interview that a politics of fear and isolation will bring less security, not more, and would be dangerous not only for the United States, but for Europe and the rest of the world as well.
