President Joe Biden declared that former President Donald Trump “will be the nominee” following Trump’s landslide victory in New Hampshire on Tuesday night in the Republican presidential primary.
In a statement emailed to Mediaite, Biden framed Trump as the presumptive victor and thanked voters who helped his write-in campaign, which led to him winning the Democratic primary in New Hampshire.
“It is now clear that Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee. And my message to the country is the stakes could not be higher. Our Democracy. Our personal freedoms — from the right to choose to the right to vote. Our economy — which has seen the strongest recovery in the world since COVID. All are at stake. I want to thank all those who wrote my name in this evening in New Hampshire,” the statement read from Biden.
“It was a historic demonstration of commitment to our democratic process. And I want to say to all those Independents and Republicans who share our commitment to core values of our nation — our Democracy, our personal freedoms, an economy that gives everyone a fair shot — to join us as Americans. Let’s remember. We are the United States of America. And there is nothing — nothing — we can’t do if we do it together,” the statement added.
