Trump has so far won the primaries in 3 states (European News Agency)

Former US President Donald Trump is running an election campaign in South Carolina today, Saturday, against his rival, Nikki Haley, to obtain the Republican Party nomination for the presidential elections, while opinion polls indicate that he is ahead of his rival by about 50 points.

Trump vowed to crush Haley in the primary elections, and said in a speech he delivered to his supporters during an election rally in the state that he would prove to President Joe Biden and the Democrats that “we are coming at the speed of a freight train” in the presidential elections that will take place next November.

Polling stations opened their doors in the southern state of the United States at seven in the morning local time, amid expectations of a victory for Trump, who has so far won the primary elections in three states: Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada.

Haley (52 years old) is Trump's only competitor for the Republican Party nomination to compete in the upcoming presidential elections.

Haley, a former governor of South Carolina who was America's ambassador to the United Nations under Trump, focuses on her relative youth compared to Trump (77 years old), as well as her background, as she comes from an immigrant family from India.

Despite the criticism directed at him and his prosecution in 4 criminal indictments, Trump remains the most likely candidate to win the Republican Party nomination for the upcoming presidential elections, according to observers.
