Donald Trump set to win Republican nomination sooner than in 2020: Campaign sec

Former president Donald Trump is expected to formally secure the Republican nomination for president next week, five days sooner than in 2020.

To win the nomination, the former president needs at least 1,215 delegates from state primaries and caucuses. With a total of 1,075 delegates in his hand, Trump seeks to secure 161 delegates which are up for grabs in the next contests in Georgia, Hawaii, Mississippi, and Washington.

Karoline Leavitt, Trump’s campaign press secretary, is confident that Donald Trump appears certain to win the required number of delegates, earlier this time around than in 2020. “The primary is over, and President Trump will clinch the nomination sooner than he did in 2020,” she said.

“The American people have spoken, and this is nothing short of historic. Now we look towards defeating Crooked Joe Biden and delivering a resounding win for the greatest president in the history of our country, President Donald J. Trump.”

With the exception of Vermont, where presidential candidate Nikki Haley prevailed, Donald Trump’s majority wins on Super Tuesday have cemented his position. Trump’s former United Nations ambassador Haley pulled out of the race this week without backing him.

Nikki Haley secured the District of Columbia primary.

Donald Trump’s number of delegates continues to climb and he is increasingly likely to be the nominee for the Republican Party. His official confirmation is expected at the Republican Convention in Milwaukee in July.
