Former President Donald Trump locked up the Republican presidential nod on Tuesday after winning four more primaries, giving him enough delegates to become the presumptive nominee. 

Trump’s primary victories in Georgia, Mississippi, Hawaii, and Washington pushed him to 1,241 delegates, more than the 1,215 needed to earn the nomination. President Joe Biden also locked up the Democratic nomination, setting up a rematch for the 2024 presidential race. 

In a statement on Truth Social, Trump said it was an “honor” to be representing the GOP and attacked Biden over the border crisis, inflation, and economy. 

“It is my great honor to be representing the Republican Party as its Presidential Nominee. 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,” Trump posted. “Millions of people are invading our Country, many from prisons and mental institutions of other Countries. High Interest Rates and Inflation are choking our great middle class, and ALL, our Economy is bad, and our Stock Market is rising only because Polls are strongly indicating that we will WIN the Presidential Election of 2024.”

“We are now, under Crooked Joe Biden, a Third World Nation, which uses the Injustice System to go after his political opponent, ME! But fear not, we will not fail, we will take back our once great Country, put AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN – GREATER THAN EVER BEFORE. November 5th will go down as the most important day in the history of our Country! GOD BLESS AMERICA,” Trump added. 

Trump won Georgia by 71 points, Hawaii by 95, Mississippi by 87, and Washington by 52. The former president has so far won every Republican nominating contest except Washington, D.C., and Vermont, both of which were won by former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley. 


“It’s your favorite president speaking to you on a really great day of victory,” Trump said in a video posted by his campaign on X. “The Republican National Committee has just declared us the official nominee and so we’re the official nominee of the Republican party, which is a big deal. But most importantly we now have to go on to victory because our country is in serious trouble. We have millions and millions of people flowing in. We have no respect on the world’s stage.” 

New RNC Chair Michael Whatley congratulated Trump and looked ahead to the convention in Milwaukee in July. 

“Congratulations to Donald J. Trump for securing the delegates necessary to be the presumptive Republican Nominee for President,” Whatley said. “I am looking forward to the @GOP Convention where we will formally nominate him to be the 47th President of the United States!”
