The Republican National Committee has thrown out the idea to call former President Donald Trump the “presumptive 2024 nominee.”
Now, just as quickly as the resolution was made, it has been withdrawn.
It only took one post from Trump.
Not long before the resolution was withdrawn, Trump posted on his social media site, Truth Social, writing that he was “greatly” appreciative of the sentiment, he did not approve of this suggestion.
Trump wrote that the Republican National Committee “should NOT go forward with this plan, but that I should do it the 'Old Fashioned' way, and finish the process off AT THE BALLOT BOX.”
It is obvious when it comes to his competitor GOP candidate Nikki Haley, Trump does not think he has anything to fear.
Haley’s team, however, says it is not the role of the Republican National Committee to declare anyone the “presumptive 2024 nominee.”
Haley’s campaign spokesperson, Olivia Perez-Cubas, released a recent statement of the Republican National Committee’s now-withdrawn resolution.
"Who cares what the RNC says? We'll let millions of Republican voters across the country decide who should be our party's nominee, not a bunch of Washington insiders," Perez-Cubas said.
After former GOP candidate and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis recently dropped out of the race, Haley came in much closer to Trump in the New Hampshire primary elections than anyone expected.
Haley was second to Trump by a margin of 43.2% to 54.3%.
Now, others are saying Haley may have a fighting chance in the race against the former president.
However, it seems the Republican National Committee may think otherwise.
They also seem to only have withdrawn the recent resolution due to Trump’s response to the news.
Do you think it will be a close race between Haley and Trump in the primary election?
