Donald Trump says he wants general election to be on Tuesday after Nevada win

Former President Donald Trump says he wants the general election to be held on Tuesday after his win in Nevada.

Mr Trump made his remarks on the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on Thursday night.

“Is there any way we can call the election for next Tuesday,” Mr Trump stated. “That’s all I want. I want to call the election for next Tuesday.”

Media shops declared Nevada’s major a victory for Mr Trump and a loss for Nikki Haley, the previous UN Ambassador who embarrassingly misplaced to “none of these candidates,” an possibility Nevada places on the poll for voters to choose in the event that they’re unhappy with their decisions.

Ms Haley beforehand acknowledged that the caucus was rigged in Mr Trump’s favour. Her workforce stated she was not making an attempt to win the election anyway.

“We didn’t bother to play a game rigged for Trump,” Ms Haley’s spokesperson Olivia Perez-Cubas instructed USA Today. “We’re full steam ahead in South Carolina and beyond.

The former president is currently leading in the polls in Ms Haley’s home state.

Trump continued to brag about his victory during his remarks at the event.

“You broke the all-time record,” he reportedly instructed the group, referring to the election outcomes. “We wanted to get over 80 [per cent] and we got 98”. In the top, the previous president ended up receiving 99 per cent of the caucus votes, in accordance to the outlet.

Meanwhile, President Joe Biden simply gained the Democratic caucus. Mr Trump has misplaced the state to Mr Biden twice up to now. Las Vegas has traditionally been Democratic, whereas rural components of Nevada have a tendency to lean Republican.

However, none of that appeared to faze Mr Trump as he spoke on the occasion.

“Go back home, rest and then come back,” he instructed his supporters. “If we win the state of Nevada, it’s over for them.”

The 2024 US general election will be held 5 November.
