( – On Saturday night, many Democrats took to social media to ridicule former President Donald Trump following his win in the South Carolina GOP primary election. Many Democrats also encouraged Nikki Haley, who is the only remaining major Republican rival in the race to stay in the race. 

Only moments after the polls had closed on Saturday night the primary had been called in favor of Trump, who is believed to be the likely Republican nominee in the 2024 presidential race. Trump had celebrated his victory by arguing that he was looking forward to the November election after which he would be able to tell President Joe Biden that he was fired. 

Following the news of Trump’s success in the race against former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, Biden released a statement arguing that every day the American people were being reminded of how much of a threat to the country Trump was. He specifically attacked Trump over his stance on abortion and argued that the former President was taking away from women a “fundamental constitutional right” that they have had for around five decades. 

He added that the economy was still being rebuilt after Trump had ended up giving his “wealthy friend handouts” while destroying “good-paying jobs” and “working families.” He then pointed out how Trump had promised that if he wins back the White House he would be using his position to seek retribution and revenge. 

Democratic political strategist Adam Parkhomenko in his own statement on X, formerly known as Twitter after Trump’s victory argued that things were not going well for the former President. He then pointed to a clip of South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham being booed after Trump welcomed him on the stage to celebrate his victory in the state.
