Donald Trump’s campaign announced Thursday that he is the presumptive Republican nominee.
Trump has emerged as the frontrunner after winning the Republican presidential primary in New York last week.
Trump’s team has not released his vice presidential running mate yet.
A source told Politico that Trump and his running mate, Indiana Gov.
Mike Pence, would be officially announced on Friday.
Here are five key questions about the GOP race: *Will Trump run in 2020?
The presumptive nominee is expected to make a decision on whether or not to run in the fall of 2020.
If Trump does not run in 2021, he will leave his White House and begin his campaign as a U.S. senator.
But the campaign is in the process of finalizing an endorsement deal with Sen. Luther Strange of Alabama, the state’s GOP chairman, who is a Trump loyalist.
“The campaign is now in the final stages of final negotiations on a major endorsement for Luther Strange,” said a person familiar with the discussions.
A spokeswoman for Strange did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Trump is seen as a populist candidate who has appealed to both working-class whites and conservatives.
The candidate has been viewed favorably by many Republicans, but is seen by many as a polarizing figure.
Some of his most divisive rhetoric, like his suggestion that President Barack Obama was born in the U.N., has come from his own party.
*Will Donald Trump win?
Trump could win the Republican nomination in 2020, according to the New York Times.
The newspaper said that a recent survey of GOP voters found that Trump’s support had increased in recent months and that the candidate’s numbers are rising nationally.
A Trump supporter in New Hampshire on Thursday was asked if he was “truly a believer” and said, “Yes, I am.”
The Times also said that Trump was “now the clear favorite” to win the presidency in 2020.
*Does Trump support religion?
He has said repeatedly that he would support a religious test for citizenship.
“I believe in the sanctity of life and the inalienable rights of all people, including the right to religious freedom,” Trump said in a July 2016 campaign speech.
He added, “Religion has always been the great equalizer, and we must respect that.”
*Is there a chance Donald Trump will run in another election?
Trump said he would not run again in 2020 if he were elected president, but a campaign aide said on Wednesday that Trump would consider seeking a third term.
“If he runs again, he would be open to doing so,” the aide said.
“We’d have to wait and see what happens.”
*Will Mike Pence be the GOP vice presidential nominee?
Pence, a conservative Christian, has been seen as Trump’s most vocal and effective running mate.
The former Indiana governor has drawn praise from religious leaders for his leadership of the religious freedom law signed by former President Barack U. Obama.
In the wake of Trump’s victory in New Mexico on Tuesday, Pence tweeted that he was looking forward to “attending the swearing in of Mike Pence as Vice President” in Washington.
“Happy to be a part of this historic moment,” Pence tweeted.
*Are Trump’s attacks on Muslims the right thing?
Trump has called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.-S.
in the wake, in part, of the deadly attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, California, last year.
In recent weeks, Trump has repeatedly said that Muslims are a “cancer” in the United States and has vowed to “build a wall” on the U,S.-Mexico border.
The billionaire real estate developer has been one of Trump to campaign with a member of the so-called alt-right movement, a loosely defined group of white nationalists who have advocated for a more extreme form of American conservatism.
*Do religious leaders have any concerns about Trump’s rhetoric?
Yes, according a source familiar with a recent meeting between Trump’s senior advisers and religious leaders.
The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the campaign had asked religious leaders if they had any concerns that the campaign was “lacking in respect for the American people.”
The source said Trump’s remarks about Muslims and Muslims in general were not the most problematic issue for religious leaders, noting that the issue was also the issue of national security.
*Has Donald Trump really said anything about religion in the past?
Yes he has, according in part to the person familiar.
“His statements have been inflammatory and outrageous, but it is also true that the rhetoric has not been divisive,” the source said.
*How does the election work in 2020 and beyond?
Polls show Trump is well behind in most key swing states, including Florida,
