The US President thanked the residents of these States on Twitter.
WASHINGTON – Incumbent President Donald Trump on Tuesday is expected to win the primary elections (primaries) in all five states where they were held: Idaho, Washington, Mississippi, Missouri, and Michigan. ABC reported.
The American leader himself responded to messages about his victory on his Twitter page, thanking the residents of these states.
There is no intrigue in the situation with the Republicans: Trump has no real rivals in this internal party struggle. Against this background, in one of the States – Hawaii – meetings of party activists (Caucuses) of Republicans on this day were decided not to hold, so the vote was held in five States, where the mandates of 242 delegates are at stake.
In North Dakota, the Republican Party held Caucuses to determine delegates to the state party branch Convention, which will be held on March 27-28. This is where the final vote will already be held. Even though only Trump appears on the ballots, Republicans still decided to hold meetings of party activists.
For the nomination of the Republican Party candidate at the Convention, which will be held from August 24 to 27 in Charlotte (North Carolina), the votes of 1,276 of the 2,441 participants delegated by the results of meetings of activists and primary elections are required. After the current victory, trump has already secured the support of more than 1 thousand delegates.
The 59th US presidential election will be held on November 3.
