Trump and Biden Officially Become Presumptive Presidential Nominees

Former President Donald Trump has secured enough delegates to become the official presumptive presidential nominee for the Republican Party.

Trump’s Tuesday primary wins in Washington state, Georgia, Mississippi and Hawaii “pushed him over the delegate threshold necessary to secure the nomination,” according to Politico.

The former president now has 1,241 delegates, 26 more than the minimum required, with more expected as voters prepare to cast their ballots in GOP primaries in Arizona, Florida and Illinois this week.

RNC Research happily announced the news, concluding their post with Trump’s official slogan, “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

Trump thanked supporters in a Truth Social post in which he depicted the Republican Party as “UNITED and STRONG” and emphasized the importance of prevailing over the “most incompetent, corrupt and destructive president in the history of the United States.”

The once busy field of 14 GOP hopefuls narrowed last fall when the Republican National Committee established minimal support level requirements for candidates to participate in presidential debates.

Most exited the race after Trump dominated the Ohio primary. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy suspended their campaigns after the second primary in New Hampshire.

Nikki Haley, a former U.N. Ambassador and South Carolina governor, suspended her campaign last week. She earned 94 delegates and won primaries in Washington, D.C. and Vermont.

Haley announced last Wednesday: “I have no regrets. And although I will no longer be a candidate, I will not stop using my voice for the things I believe in.”

Though she wished Trump well, she chose not to endorse him despite previously signing an RNC pledge vowing to support the eventual GOP nominee.

Trump has projected confidence in his multi-year comeback bid. The tone of his posts and statements at popular rallies is not if I become president but when I become president.

On Monday, noting a sharp contrast between his policies and those of President Joe Biden, Trump posted: “My first acts as your next President will be to Close the Border, DRILL, BABY, DRILL, and Free the January 6 Hostages being wrongfully imprisoned!”

Last weekend, Trump met with the Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, a diplomatic overture criticized by the White House.

On Tuesday, Biden also became his party’s presumptive nominee after winning the Georgia primary and passing the 1,968 delegate threshold.
