After winning the primary race in New Hampshire, President Trump reacted to his victory through a series of posts via his Truth Social on Tuesday, labeling his primary opponent, former S.C. Nikki Haley, “DELUSIONAL!!!”

“Wow! We are doing really well despite all of the Biden Votes going for Haley,” Trump wrote in one post.

“Haley said she had to WIN in New Hampshire,” he added to a second post. “SHE DIDN’T!!!”

The president later wrote that Haley “CAME IN THIRD LAST WEEK” in Iowa, and that she also “JUST LOST NEVADA,” the upcoming primary race scheduled for Feb. 8.

President Trump later told Fox News Digital during an exclusive interview that he felt “very honored” by his win and that he was “looking forward to going against the worst president in the history of our country.”

When asked if Haley should suspend her campaign, Trump replied that “she should” since Republicans would otherwise be “wasting money instead of spending on Biden.”

“The party is very united except for her,” said Trump.

Taylor Budowich, CEO of Make America Great Again Inc., also reacted to the president’s victory, telling primary opponent Nikki Haley that it was “time to drop out.”

“Nikki Haley said she’s running to stop the re-election of Harris-Biden,” the statement read. “Yet, without a viable path to victory, every day she stays in the race is another day she delivers to the Harris-Biden campaign.”

The campaign’s statement continued, “It’s time for unity, it’s time to take the fight to the Democrats, and for Nikki Haley: it’s time to drop out.”

President Donald Trump was projected as the winner of the New Hampshire GOP primary, according to data from Decision Desk HQ, with their call coming in at 8:00 p.m. ET.

Trump won with 53.5 percent to Haley’s 45.5 percent, according to the data. With 22 delegates up for grabs, Trump has thus far been awarded 11 delegates to six for Haley.

The results were still developing as the race was called. These numbers are not final.
