During his speech to members of the NRA in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, on Friday, President Trump promised to win in the state of South Carolina, the Republican Party’s next primary contest, and eventually the White House.
Touting his recent primary wins in Nevada and the U.S. Virgin Islands on Thursday, Trump maintained that he would likely win another record-breaking margin of victory in South Carolina.
“Fifteen days from now, we’re going to win the South Carolina primary,” said Trump. “We’re way ahead—but we only have a 42-point lead—that’s not bad.”
Trump then told supporters that after a long primary season, he would ultimately win the presidency come November.
“We’re going to win the White House,” he continued. “Starting with a historic triumph right here in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania—I love Pennsylvania! I went to school in Pennsylvania!”
The South Carolina Republican primary will take place on Saturday, Feb. 24. Trump will face off against the state’s former Gov. Nikki Haley, although the president is expected to win the state by a wide margin.
President Trump has already won landslide victories across four early election states—most recently in Nevada, where he received nearly 100 percent of Republican voters’ support in the state’s caucus.
The 45th president also won landslide victories in primary contests in the U.S. Virgin Islands, New Hampshire, and Iowa.
