Trump Cashed in As A Republican Presidential Candidate
US President Donald Trump on Tuesday proclaimed himself the winner of the primaries among the Republicans in six states.
As with the Democrats, voters in Idaho, Washington, North Dakota, Michigan, Missouri, and Mississippi voted to vote for the Republican presidential candidate on Tuesday.
There was little resistance for Trump, as there were no severe challenges within the party. That is why previous primaries were cancelled in various states. Trump has so far always received more than 90 percent of the votes.
The current president already has 1,099 delegates to his name, and he must get 1,276 to be officially designated as a presidential candidate with the Republicans.
His challengers, Bill Weld and Joe Walsh, never really had a chance to beat Trump. Weld brought in one delegate but has still not given up definitively. Walsh already threw in the towel.
On Twitter, Trump thanked voters in the states of Idaho, Washington, North Dakota, Michigan, Missouri, and Mississippi for their support.
At the Democrats, the primaries have meanwhile ended in a battle between former vice president Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders. Biden was able to win most of the six primaries on Tuesday and is in the lead. In July, Democrats decide who will challenge Trump in November.
