Mixed results in primary exams | Trump’s influence over Republicans has been questioned

(Washington) Is Donald Trump still in complete control of the Republican Party? The results of Tuesday’s major primaries in the United States did not answer this question, but mixed results for candidates backed by the former president.

On Wednesday morning, Donald Trump logged on to Truth Social, the social network he created – an almost perfect copy of the Twitter he banned – and launched in a series of messages.

“Last night was a big night for Trump-backed candidates,” he said, adding that a series of primary elections on Tuesday saw Republicans vying for elected positions, senators and governors.

Since the beginning of May, the start of the interim primary season that will determine the balance of political power in the United States for the next two years, most candidates backed by the former president – from West Virginia to Ohio to Kentucky – have won as Republican candidates.

A few matches broke the rule on Tuesday.

Madison Cowthorn, a 26-year-old elected official at the center of several controversies – among other things, who she believed was invited to a party by politicians before she stepped down – has failed to retain her candidacy for the Carolina seat. In the North, despite the strong support of Donald Trump.

But all the focus was mainly on the state of Pennsylvania, which is known for its declining businesses, where a senatorial primary election, obtained by a former television star surgeon, was the campaign on which Donald Trump had personally arrived, and Wednesday was even closer than the winner could be announced.

“Ultra Maga”

Whatever it is, to Donald Trump.

Then, as expected, the former White House tenant returned to his network an hour later.

“Remember all three candidates in Pennsylvania are ‘Ultra’ Maga!”, He mentions in his popular campaign slogan “Make America Great Again” (“Let’s Make America Great Again”). Implicitly Donald Trump: Whether he wins or not, he still holds the Republicans with an iron fist.

Then, and then, with no results yet in Pennsylvania, the former president betrayed his annoyance.

“In Pennsylvania, they could not count the mail’s votes,” he lamented. “What a mess”.

For a year and a half, the Republican millionaire accused the same postal vote of kicking him out of the White House.
