Trump lashes out at Biden on social media after securing the Republican nomination

 X, Team Trump

The former Republican President Donald Trump (2017-2021) celebrated his victory in the Republican primaries this Tuesday, which mathematically makes him his party's candidate for the November elections, with attacks on Democratic President Joe Biden, who will be his opponent.

Trump spoke out in a video posted on social network X shortly after the major television networks declared his victory following the closure of the polling stations in the state of Washington at 8:00 p.m. local time.

"This has been a day of great victory (...) But now we have to get back to work because we have the worst president in the history of our country. His name is Joe Biden, sometimes referred to as corrupt Joe Biden, and he must be defeated," Trump said in the video.

Trump also sent a message to his followers, emphasizing the importance of the November elections: "This vote is going to be the most important vote you have ever cast."

With his victory this Tuesday in the state of Washington, Trump surpassed the threshold of 1,215 delegates he needed to secure the Republican presidential nomination, although the result will not be official until the party's national convention, which will take place from July 15 to 18 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

In the United States, the primary process is indirect: voters do not directly choose the candidates, but the delegates who swear to support the candidate during the party convention.

The President of the United States, Democrat Joe Biden, also became mathematically the Democratic candidate for the November elections this Tuesday, and his nomination will be confirmed at the Democratic National Convention to be held in Chicago, Illinois, from August 19 to 22.

Today's election day, a kind of mini Super Tuesday, featured primaries from both parties in Georgia, Mississippi, and Washington.

In addition, the Democrats held primaries in the territory of the Northern Mariana Islands in the Pacific, and the Republicans gathered in Hawaii to vote in caucuses or neighborhood assemblies, the results of which are not yet known.
