- President Donald Trump hit the ground running ahead of the presidential election after securing necessary delegate threshold on Tuesday
- During the delegate-rich primaries in Florida and Illinois, Trump pulled the storm by setting 'record vote tallies' of 1,276 delegates to secure GOP nomination
- Meanwhile, former vice president Joe Biden's campaign received a massive boost as he cruised to a hat-trick victory over Vermont senator Bernie Sanders in Florida, Illinois and Arizona
Donald Trump's re-election bid received a massive boost on Tuesday, March 17, as the United States of America president secured the necessary delegate threshold of the Republican Party ahead of the presidential election.
Trump's first four years have been ridden with controversies but that does not obstruct his re-election bid as he comfortably cruised to victory over other Republican Party hopefuls in Florida and Illinois primaries, MSN reports.
The US president set 'record vote tallies' by amassing whopping 1,276 delegates to his grip as he now looks destined to flag the party's ticket in the coming presidential poll.
"It shows the enthusiasm behind President Trump, it shows how unified Republicans are behind President Trump and how intense their support for him is,” Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh said after the Tuesday's primaries.
Before the Florida and Illinois primaries, Trump had 1,141 delegates in his camps and with the president sweeping the floor dry in the delegate-rich contests in both states, he has undisputedly secured the GOP nomination.
Meanwhile, Trump will face the herculean task of taming the Democrats in the coming election as former vice president Joe Biden also established his himself as a dominant front-runner.
Biden, 77, cruised to a massive hat-trick victory in a delegate-rich contest in Florida, Illinois and Arizona, and he is some steps beyond his close challenger Bernie Sanders, a Vermont senator.
