After Tuesday’s primaries in Georgia, Mississippi and Washington state, along with the GOP caucus in Hawaii, former President Donald Trump has officially become the presumptive GOP presidential nominee — securing the minimum number of delegates required to hold the title.

Decision Desk HQ has projected Trump to win all of these GOP nominating contests, positioning him for the likely rematch with President Joe Biden, who also secured the nomination with the minimum number of delegates on Tuesday.

Before these primaries, Trump had 1,077 delegates. He needed 138 more delegates to reach the minimum of 1,215, and there was a total of 161 delegates up for grabs on Tuesday.

On Monday, Trump posted on Truth Social to assure his supporters that his “first acts” as president “will be to Close the Border, DRILL, BABY, DRILL, and Free the January 6 Hostages being wrongfully imprisoned!”

Trump has since released a video to celebrate the “really great day of victory” — pointing to the massive victory he had on Super Tuesday while noting that these latest primaries “got us over the top.”

“We now have to go on to victory because our country’s in serious trouble,” he added. “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.”


“We have an economy that outside of certain little areas is doing very poorly,” Trump continued. “And we have something very, very important. We have a United States military that has to be taken care of.”

He then pointed out that “Crooked Joe Biden” is the “worst president in the history of our country” and “he must be defeated” — noting that “Our nation is failing. We’re a nation that is in serious decline. We’ve never had a situation like this where we’re not respected. We’re laughed at. We’re considered almost a joke.”

Trump vowed to “turn it around” when he reenters the White House, pledging to “drill baby drill,” close the border and “make our nation’s economy be the best ever in the world.”

“We had the best economy ever. Just a short while ago, and we’re going to have that again,” he added.

“We’re going to have people come into our country, but they’re going to come in legally,” Trump continued. “And we’re going to get your energy costs down by numbers that nobody would have said were even possible. We have some sections of this country that are paying the highest numbers in the history of our country and among the most expensive energy anywhere in the world. And yet we have more liquid gold… under our feet than any other nation. Just three years ago, we were energy-independent. And now we’re going around begging for energy.”

Trump also promised to make America a “strong country” and a “respected country,” predicting that he is likely to win the November presidential election “by a lot because there’s never been anybody worse at doing that job. than Joe Biden.”

He then stated that he would not take this time to celebrate, as that will come “in eight months when the election is over,” asserting that Nov. 5 will “go down as the most important day in the history of our country” and that “this vote is going to be the most important vote you’ve ever cast.”

Trump concluded by thanking “everybody” for the “tremendous” primary success.
