“It has been an incredible night and day“, summarizes Donald Trump, who already swept most of the states at stake during the so-called Super Tuesday in the United States, thus confirming his progress towards the Republican nomination for the November presidential elections, which will probably He will compete against Democrat Joe Biden.

There is no mystery. Neither the Republican, 77 years old, nor the Democrat, 81, have anyone to overshadow them in the primaries, who will designate the candidates of both parties for the elections.

The former conservative president has already been declared the winner in 12 states of the 15 in dispute. These are Virginia, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Maine, Alabama, Arkansas, Massachusetts, Colorado, Minnesota, Texas and California, the latter two being the most populated in the country, according to US media projections.

His last rival for his party’s presidential nomination, Nikki Haley, has deprived him of an absolute victory, by winning Vermont.

“Thank you, Maga!”

“It has been an incredible, incredible night and day. It has been an incredible period in the history of our country,” he said to his followers, gathered at his Mar-a-Lago mansion, in Florida.

“Thank you – MAGA!” he wrote earlier on his Truth Social platform, using the acronym of the Trumpist slogan “Make America Great Again“(“Let’s Make America Great Again”) and listing the states where he has won.

The House of Representatives, when it had a Democratic majority, accused him of having incited an insurrection. He was acquitted by the Senate but faces 91 felony charges.

This does not prevent him from being appreciated by working class, white and rural voters.

Since January 15 and, despite his legal problems, Trump has won almost all the primaries since January, with the exception of Washington, the capital of the United States, where Haley won.

Democrats take note and sound the alarm.

Trump “is determined to destroy our democracy, rip away fundamental freedoms like women’s ability to make their own health care decisions and pass another round of billions of dollars in tax cuts for the rich, and will do or say anything to achieve the power“Biden said in a statement released by his campaign team.

In another statement he asked for funds.

“It’s killing it”

“Trump is sweeping the ‘Super Tuesday’ Republican primaries across the country. It will be us against the entire Trumpist right in these elections (…). I need your help,” he says.

Haley, a 52-year-old former ambassador to the UN, embodies the moderate wing of the Republican Party and promises to restore “normality” in the face of “Trump chaos.” The question is whether she will stay in the race if she continues to lose tonight.

At Trump’s Mar-a-Lago mansion in Florida, no one doubts that the former president will be the Republican presidential candidate at the end of the evening.

Under imposing chandeliers, the guests are ready to celebrate their victory. Many are wearing the famous red caps with the Trump slogan.

Kenny Nail, chairman of a local county Republican Party, expects Haley to “drop out.”

In theory, the primaries can last until July. But Trump’s team predicts a victory “on March 19” at the latest, after Georgia and Florida vote.

The millionaire wants to focus as soon as possible on a rematch with Joe Biden before having to focus on his legal problems. His first criminal trial begins March 25 in New York. On the Democratic side, Biden can rest assured. He has no serious rivals.

The candidacies of two Democrats, Congressman Dean Phillips and self-help author Marianne Williamson, have never sparked enthusiasm despite recurring criticism from voters of the president’s age or his support for Israel.

This turns Tuesday’s elections into a mere formality. At the moment, he has already won 13 states at stake, in addition to Iowa, which held a vote by mail in recent weeks.

The president will defend his policies and his vision for the United States on Thursday during an important speech before Congress, the traditional “State of the Union“.
