The Associated Press announced Trump as the winner of the South Carolina primaries shortly after polling stations closed. This decision was owing largely to his significant lead over Nikki Haley. After half of the votes were counted, the former president was leading the former governor of South Carolina and US ambassador to the UN by 19.9 percent.

This victory is even greater than we anticipated - Donald Trump commented on his win, as quoted by

Commentators opine that Nikki Haley's defeat, particularly in her home state, effectively ends her chances. She, however, is not planning on withdrawing her candidacy, maintaining her initiative to provide Americans the choice they deserve in the race.

My sole aim in running for office is to represent the majority of Americans who say they neither want Donald Trump nor Joe Biden. As long as the majority of Americans request a choice, I will persist - Haley pledges.

Trump advances, predicting a "day of reckoning."

The primaries have so far taken place in five states - Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, Virgin Islands, and South Carolina, with Trump dominating the contests. Currently, he stands the best chance for receiving the nomination. The upcoming Super Tuesday, featuring primaries in 16 states, will be crucial. Trump is the favorite to win.

Prior to the South Carolina primaries, Trump made an appearance in Washington, where he addressed attendees at the Washington Conservative Political Action Conference. The former president spoke about the importance of the forthcoming elections, calling it both a "day of liberation" and a "day of reckoning".

For hardworking Americans, November 5th will be our new day of liberation, but for those who have taken over our government through deceit and fraud, it will be a day of reckoning - Trump pledges.
