Trump Now Officially Republican Party’s Presumptive Nominee

Former President Donald Trump is now the Republican Party’s presumptive nominee for November’s election. The 45th president cleared the delegate threshold to secure a likely rematch with Democratic President Joe Biden.

Trump reached the minimum of 1,215 delegates necessary to be at the top of the GOP ticket. Prior to Tuesday’s primaries he had secured 1,077, leaving at least 138 remaining before officially becoming the presumptive nominee.

Republicans held primaries in Georgia, Hawaii, Michigan and Washington state this week.

Trump celebrated the achievement on his Truth Social platform. He wrote, “Our Party is UNITED and STRONG, and fully understands that we are running against the Worst, Most Incompetent, Corrupt and Destructive President in the History of the United States.”

He then rallied the faithful on issues including illegal migration, inflation and the Democratic persecution of political opponents.

The once-crowded GOP field was almost immediately overshadowed by Trump’s presence. One by one his challengers fell by the wayside until there was only former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.

She too admitted defeat, and there was only Trump left standing.

With Biden’s coronation by Democrats who wish someone else topped their ticket, the primary season is all but over. Little will change as both Trump and Biden spent the past several months skewering each other’s records.

The 45th president quickly made his mark on the party after the party chose him to lead. The Republican National Committee last week welcomed fresh leadership anointed by the presumptive nominee with a new chairperson, co-chair and chief of staff.

Many within the GOP ranks felt this move was long overdue.

Trump’s status as the presumptive nominee could have been cemented weeks ago in the aftermath of his victories in Iowa and New Hampshire. An RNC member proposed making that declaration, speeding up the process and permitting him to imprint his stamp on the party.

But Trump did not support the measure, even though he admitted that it would have likely succeeded. It was eventually withdrawn.

Now all that is left are months of blistering campaigns and the pivotal November presidential election to decide the nation’s direction.
