Ahead of the upcoming November presidential election, former President Trump and former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley are locked in a fierce battle in the Republican Party, but the winner of the ticket to the finals has actually been decided. Former President Trump won a landslide victory over former Ambassador Haley in both the primary and caucuses held so far.

In Michigan, the Democratic-majority state legislature postponed the primary date to the 27th of last month, which was against Republican primary rules, so two primary elections were held until the caucus.

Former President Trump, who has recorded an undisputed victory, is expected to formalize his bid for the presidential election at this event.

Former President Trump visited Richmond, Virginia, one of the Super Tuesday primary sites, and said, “We will win big in Virginia,” and “We will win Virginia 100%.” finished. “The election will be over,” he said, expressing his confidence in his victory.

Meanwhile, the pressure on former Ambassador Haley to resign, who has suffered consecutive defeats, is expected to intensify. After the primary, primary and caucuses will be held in Washington DC and North Dakota on the 3rd and 4th, respectively, until Super Tuesday, and former Ambassador Haley is expected to handle these primary elections for now.

On this day in Greensboro, North Carolina, former President Trump targeted former Ambassador Haley and sarcastically said, “After we won her state (South Carolina) so big, I haven’t heard of her in five days.”
