Donald Trump is once again attacking Joe Biden

In his victory speech, Trump attacked President Joe Biden of the Democrats, whom he called the “worst in the history” of the United States. The Republican called the United States a country in decline and failure.

Despite his success, Trump verbally attacked his rival during his victory speech in the city of Nashua in New Hampshire and was literally foaming with anger. “She’s doing a victory lap and we beat her so clearly,” he said. The 77-year-old called his former ambassador to the United Nations an “imposter” and downplayed her results. “She’s not going to win,” he said. But his speech made it clear that he definitely sees Haley as a danger.

The 52-year-old said the race for the Republican presidential nomination is “far from over.” “The worst kept secret in politics is how badly Democrats want to take on Donald Trump,” Haley said. “A Trump nomination is a Biden victory.”

Haley was hoping for a surprise in New Hampshire. She also insisted that voters registered as independents in the state would also be allowed to take part in the primaries, which would favor moderate politicians like her.

Joe Biden warns of a US President Donald Trump

US President Biden said it was now clear that Trump would be the Republican candidate. “And my message to the country is that the stakes couldn’t be higher. Our democracy. Our personal freedoms,” Biden said.

Despite his numerous judicial problems with four indictments, Trump is still popular with the right-wing base. He had already won the Republican primary in the state of Iowa last week.

With the victory in New Hampshire, the 77-year-old is taking another step towards his party’s nomination for the presidential election in November. No candidate has ever lost the race for the Republican presidential nomination after winning the primaries in the first two states.

The presidential election in the USA will take place on November 5th. The Democrats held unofficial primaries in New Hampshire on Tuesday, which Biden won and gave him a symbolic boost. In the race for the White House, the president is once again focusing on the issue of abortion rights, with which the Democrats were already successful in the 2022 midterm elections.

However, many Democratic politicians and voters have doubts that Biden, at 81, is the right candidate. He is already the oldest president in US history. In the 2020 presidential election, Biden won against Trump, who had a four-year term marked by chaos and scandals and who still does not recognize Biden’s election victory.
