Trump and Biden ask for the vote of Haley's followers after her withdrawal from the primaries


The two foreseeable candidates for the November presidential elections in the United States, Joe Biden and Donald Trump, rushed this Wednesday to ask the votes of the followers of the former governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley, shortly after she announced her withdrawal from the Republican primaries.

Haley, Trump's last remaining rival on the Republican flank, has acknowledged that "in all likelihood" the magnate will be the final candidate in the elections, but has avoided asking for a vote for him. Thus, she has indicated that it is "up to him" to "win the votes" that until now have resisted him, both inside and outside the party.

In his first reaction, the former president recalled that Haley was "crushed" on 'Super Tuesday', despite her symbolic victory in Vermont, which she attributes to the support of supporters of the Democratic Party. In fact, she believes that much of the money she had raised during the campaign derived from "the radical left."

Trump, who has boasted of signing "the most successful 'Super Tuesday' in history", has "invited" his rival's followers to join his "movement". "Biden is the enemy, he is destroying our country," he warned in a message published on the Truth Social network.

Biden has also reached out to Haley's followers, considered more moderate than Trump's. "Donald Trump has made it clear that he does not love Nikki Haley's supporters. I want to be clear: there is a place for them in my campaign," the current tenant of the White House declared in a statement released by his campaign.

The Democrat also wanted to praise the "bravery" of the former ambassador to the UN for confronting Trump, who has devastated since the beginning of the process. Biden considers it worthy of admiration at a time when "few dare" to speak against the New York magnate within the Republican Party.

This Wednesday, Trump received the symbolic public support of the leader of the Republicans in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, despite the fact that they had not spoken for three years after the exchange of reproaches for the assault by a mob of radicals on the Capitol on January 6, 2021. .

Now that it is "completely clear" that Trump will be the party's candidate, McConnell, who is already leaving the front line, has released a statement. "It should not be surprising that, as a nominee, he has my support," he concluded, according to a statement reported by the North American network CNN.
