The President of the United States, Joe Biden, and his predecessor, Donald Trump, who was replaced in office in January 2020, are moving closer to competing again in the upcoming Presidential election.

On this 5th of March, 2024, both the Democratic and Republican parties continued their primary elections to select their candidates for the Presidential election scheduled for November 5th.

The American news agency, Associated Press, announced that Biden, representing the Democrats, won in more than 10 states including Vermont, Virginia, Massachusetts, South Carolina, and Maine.

Trump also secured victories in these states except for Vermont, where he was defeated by Nikki Haley, his contender. This woman, who served as the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, had previously defeated Trump in Washington D.C.

The Vice President of America, Kamala Harris, expressed her pleasure with the results from these primaries, interpreting them as a sign of Americans’ eagerness to vote for President Biden.

She stated, “Americans, from all walks of life, are showing that they want the elections to happen soon and are ready to support President Biden and me in this battle to protect our fundamental freedoms.”

While the results from the Republican side are yet to be fully disclosed, President Biden stated that Trump should not be elected to lead America again, suggesting that his leadership would regress the country.

He posed the question, “Are we going to continue our journey, or will we allow Donald Trump to drag us back into the chaos, division, and darkness that marked his presidency?”

Trump, speaking from his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida, declared this day significant, indicating that the primary results show he will be elected to lead America again.

This politician criticized Biden for not being fit to continue leading America, condemning his decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan and his failure to resolve the issue of migrants coming from Mexico.

The last election took place on November 3rd, 2020. Biden received 51.3% of the votes, Trump got 46.5%, but he did not accept the results, criticizing the use of technology in the process.
