The more money George Soros spends to ensure Donald Trump is not the GOP candidate, the more states the NY businessman wins. Voters went to the polls in five states on Tuesday, April 26, to choose a presidential nominee, with all five voting in favor of Trump.
“The whole delegate system is a sham,” Donald Trump said earlier today, insisting once again that the Republican primary process is stacked against him.
Maybe so, but the real-estate magnate and reality-TV star increasingly looks like he’s going to end up where he wants to be anyway: as the GOP’s presidential nominee.
Trump won five more states on Tuesday, moving closer to the 1,237 delegates he needs for a first-ballot nomination at the national convention in Cleveland. A well-funded anti-Trump movement has been up and running for weeks. Rival candidates Ted Cruz and John Kasich agreed to work together to block Trump. And none of it seems to matter.
“The more obstacles they put in his path the stronger he gets,” a CNN political analyst pointed out this evening.
Trump is feeling confident enough in his position that he is increasingly looking ahead to the general election. In the past week he’s directed a fair amount of his fire not at Cruz or Kasich but at presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
“I call her crooked Hillary because she’s crooked and the only thing she’s got is the woman card,” he said on Fox News. “That’s all she’s got. … It’s a weak card in her hands. I’d love to see a woman president, but she’s the wrong person. She’s a disaster.”
Next up is Indiana on May 3, which Kasich has abandoned to give Cruz a one-on-one shot at the front-runner. Trump looks more than ready for the fight.
