Trump Becomes The Presumptive GOP Nominee

According to Decision Desk HQ, former President Donald Trump on Tuesday became the presumptive Republican presidential nominee for 2024 after crossing the minimum threshold of 1,215 delegates to clinch the GOP nomination.

Election results analyst Decision Desk announced that state by state, the Republican Party has nominated the former president for a third time to run against President Joe Biden, the sitting Democrat who also secured his party’s nomination on Tuesday.

“IT’S OFFICIAL,” RNC Research told followers in a post on X, formerly Twitter. “President Donald J. Trump ‘has eclipsed the delegate threshold to officially clinch the Republican nomination for president of the United States.’ MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.”

“VP up next?” someone replied to the RNC Research account. There has been growing speculation that Trump may pick Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) or several other prominent individuals on the shortlist of candidates the former president is reviewing to find a running mate.

Before the primaries on Tuesday, Trump had 1,077 delegates to bring to the convention. He needed 138 delegates as the day began on Tuesday, and he finished the day with enough delegates to win the nomination at the Republican convention.

Some 161 delegates were up for allocation Tuesday in GOP primaries in Georgia, Hawaii, Mississippi and Washington state.

After another Tuesday of victories, Trump published a video saying, “It’s your favorite president speaking to you on a really great day of victory. One week ago, we had something called Super Tuesday and it was indeed super because we won at numbers that nobody has ever seen before. Records in virtually every state. And tonight, likewise. But this one got us over the top.”

“We now have to go on to victory because our country’s in serious trouble. We have millions and millions of people flowing in. We have no respect on the world stage. What we say doesn’t mean a thing anymore. And to have that happen is unthinkable,” Trump added.
