Donald Trump Defeats Nikki Haley In New Hampshire Primary; Haley Vows To Stay In Race 

Is this what déjà vu feels like?

Donald Trump easily beat Nikki Haley, his final opponent for the GOP presidential nomination, in the New Hampshire primary on January 23.

Fox News projected the four-time indicted former president as the winner just minutes after the polls closed. Trump told reporter Brooke Singman he was “very honored with the results.” According to polls from the New York Times, Trump secured 54.5% of the votes over Haley’s 43.2%.

However, more data show Haley performed well in areas with more college-educated residents, while Trump was more popular in areas with fewer voters. 

“I want to congratulate Donald Trump on his victory tonight. He earned it, and I want to acknowledge that,” Haley said.

However, she isn’t backing down.

“Now, you’ve all heard the chatter among the political class,” Haley added. “They’re falling all over themselves, saying this race is over. Well, I have news for all of them: New Hampshire is first in the nation. It is not the last in the nation. This race is far from over.”

Trump did not like her statement too much. Claiming she was being too celebratory, Trump took the low road, threatening Haley if she didn’t back down.

“Just a little note to Nikki, she’s not gonna win,” Trump said. “But if she did, she would be under investigation by those people in 15 minutes, and I could tell you five reasons why already.” 

President Joe Biden tapped in to see Trump claim victory and is prepared for a repeat 2020 battle. “It is now clear that Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee,” his statement read. “And my message to the country is the stakes could not be higher.” 

Biden walked away a winner during the New Hampshire primary, defeating Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN), as his name was written on ballots. The President thanked “all those who wrote my name in this evening in New Hampshire. It was a historic demonstration of commitment to our democratic process.”

Haley is correct in her remarks of the race being far from over as Trump has more hurdles to jump—his ongoing legal battles.
