Donald Trump took another step to secure the presidential nomination for the Republican Party after defeating candidate Nikki Haley in the South Carolina primary elections, where the former president received about 60% of the votes, while his rival, who was the governor of that state, received a little more than 39%. % of votes. On Saturday, Haley spoke to her supporters.

Nikki Haley“Earlier this week, I said that no matter what happens in South Carolina, I will continue my campaign for president. “I am a woman of my word.”

In another setback for Haley, a major political network sponsored by billionaire Charles Koch announced that it would end funding for her candidacy.

Trump's victory in South Carolina came just days after a New York Supreme Court judge ordered him to pay $454 million as part of a civil fraud case. Trump addressed his supporters on Saturday at the Conservative Political Action Conference and said the multiple criminal indictments against him helped him gain support in the black community.

Donald Trump“Then they accused me a second, third, and fourth time. And a lot of people said that's why the black community likes me, because they've been hurt so much and discriminated against, and in fact, they see me as if I'm being discriminated against. This was quite surprising. “I don't know, but maybe there's some truth to it.”

President Biden's campaign co-chair, Cedric Richmond, responded to Trump's comments by saying: “Donald Trump's claim that African Americans will support him because of his criminal charges is an insult. This is stupid. “This is just racist.”
