The arch-favorite of the American right Donald Trump won the Republican primary in New Hampshire on Tuesday evening against his rival Nikki Haley, clearing him the road to the Republican Party's nomination for the November presidential election against Joe Biden.

According to American television projections, the leader of the Republican primaries and former president of the United States won the vote in New Hampshire, ahead of his former ambassador to the UN, Ms. Haley, 52 years old.

If she congratulated Mr. Trump on his victory in this small northeastern state where she has many supporters, Nikki Haley affirmed that the race [was] far from over. And she warned Republicans that a Trump inauguration would be a victory for Biden on November 5.

Since his defeat in November 2020, which he never acknowledged, against President Biden, and while he faces this year four criminal trials, Donald Trump is determined to take his revenge in November on his Democratic rival.

They will all vote for me again […]. Biden is the worst president in the history of this country, Mr. Trump said near a polling station in New Hampshire which was organizing primaries for both parties, Republican and Democratic.

New Hampshire primaries, where the last polls closed at 8 p.m., saw very high turnout, according to local authorities .

During his last campaign rally Monday evening, Donald Trump once again attacked Nikki Haley, the losing candidate who will position America Lastly. If you want a president who puts America first every time, then vote Donald Trump, he said.

The tycoon had already won the first primary in Iowa on January 15.

Ms. Haley, former Republican governor of South Carolina, rejects pressure to step down. It has always been a marathon and never a sprint, she assured earlier Tuesday.

The rallying of Donald Trump this weekend by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, once considered his main Republican rival, brought back the trio of head into a duel.

But the battle is very unequal between Mr. Trump and Ms. Haley.

Nikki Haley stresses that the race for the Republican nomination is not a sprint.

All the candidates who won the Republican primaries in these first two states obtained the party's nomination.

Opposite, Joe Biden was campaigning in Virginia with his vice-president Kamala Harris on the theme of the right to abortion, threatened or already largely banned in states led by Republicans.

The president accused Donald Trump and his supporters of wanting at all costs to further restrict access to voluntary terminations of pregnancy (abortion).

Wanting to attract more moderate Republicans and independents, Ms. Haley criticizes her former president for causing chaos, a probable allusion to the multiple criminal prosecutions, particularly for illicit attempts to invalidate the results of the 2020 election.

Donald Trump has shown that he is good at breaking things. We need someone who can fix things too.

A quote from Nikki Haley

In recent days, Nikki Haley has also questioned Trump's declining cognitive abilities after comments in which he seemed to confuse her with the former Democratic Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi.

A shame for Donald Trump, who makes fun of Joe Biden, his 81 years and his blunders, even imitating his sometimes hesitant approach during his rallies .

New Hampshire only represents 22 delegates out of the 1,215 needed to officially be named the Republican candidate.

But compared to more conservative states, it gives a better indication of possible national electoral success and subsequent primaries.

Independent voters are authorized to vote in the primaries of both parties, Republican and Democratic, without being affiliated with them.
