Donald Trump has been the Republican front runner for the majority of the primary, but recent defeats have raised questions as to whether or not he will be able to secure the nomination this summer. After a stinging defeat in Wisconsin last week, Trump has decided to end all planned campaign events in California.

Campaign chaos

When the news broke on Saturday that Texas Sen. Ted Cruz would receive the majority of the delegates in Colorado, the Republican primary race all of a sudden got even closer.

While the Trump campaign announced on Wednesday that their candidate would be holding rallies and events in California, those plans are now on hold, as reported by The Los Angeles Times.

The Times reports that campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks refused to give an explanation for the cancellation, and while she did say Trump would return to the West coast, no dates were given.

The paper notes that the Trump campaign is "trying to regroup" as they face a "fundamental weakness" as the door starts to close on his chances to wrap up the nomination before the convention.

Before California's primary on June 7, Trump has decided to focus all of his attention on his hometown of New York, which will hold their primary on April 19.

According to Real Clear Politics most recent rolling average, Trump holds a double digit lead in the EmpireState.

Trump in disarray

When the billionaire real estate mogul announced his candidacy for president last June, most political pundits and members of the media didn't give him much of a chance at victory. As the months rolled on, Trump would continue to surprise the entire country, vaulting to the top of the GOP primary field, despite his controversial comments and policy proposals along the way.

However, over the last two months, Trump has stumbled on the campaign trail, engaging in personal attacks against Cruz and his wife, Heidi, as well as making questionable statements.During a recent town hall event on MSNBC, moderator Chris Matthews pressed Trump on multiple issues, where the former host of "The Apprentice" said he would be open to "some form of punishment" for women who have an abortion, in addition to not ruling out the use of nuclear weapons in Europe.
