Trump racks up victories in weekend caucus meetings

 March 4, 2024

Former President Donald Trump made short work of former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley this past weekend when he scored primary victories in three states. 

According to NPR, Trump won caucuses in Idaho and Missouri on Saturday as well as scoring all delegates at Michigan's Republican Party convention.

Message from Haley support "wasn't well received" at caucus meeting

NPR reported that the atmosphere grew heated at a church in Columbia, Missouri where Republican caucus goers held their meeting.

While Seth Christensen called on those present to throw their support behind Haley, his pitch "wasn't well received" with someone in the audience demanding to know if he was really a Republican.

"I don't need to hear about Mr. Trump's dalliances with people of unsavory character, nor do my children," NPR quoted Christensen as saying.

"And if we put that man in the office, that's what we're going to hear about all the time. And I'm through with it," he added.

Haley wins all 19 delegates in Washington, D.C. primary election

Meanwhile, Trump supporter Tom Mendenall pointed to excessive government spending, stating, "Every 100 days, we're spending $1 trillion, with money going all over the world."

He also highlighted the ongoing migrant crisis, complaining, "Illegals are running across the border. You know where Donald Trump stands on a lot of these issues."

For her part, Nikki Haley did score a rare win the following day when she managed to pick up all 19 of Washington, D.C.'s delegates.

"It’s not surprising that Republicans closest to Washington dysfunction are rejecting Donald Trump and all his chaos," the Associated Press quoted Haley spokesperson Olivia Perez-Cubas as saying in a statement.

Trump praises Supreme Court for blocking effort to bar him from state ballots

Saturday's caucus results weren't the only source of good news for Trump, as on Monday the Supreme Court blocked attempts to keep him off the ballot.

In an interview with Fox News, Trump called the ruling "both unifying and inspirational" as well as "a great win for America."

The former president also spoke out on the Supreme Court's decision to hear arguments on whether he can be prosecuted for his actions following the 2020 election.

"Equally important for our country will be the decision that they will soon make on immunity for a president — without which, the presidency would be relegated to nothing more than a ceremonial position, which is far from what the founders intended," he declared.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
