Now that all of the states have completed their respective caucus or primary in this election cycle, billionaire businessman Donald Trump is settling into his role as the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party.
In securing the presumptive nomination of the GOP, Trump did so in record-setting fashion, garnering the most votes ever for a Republican primary candidate.
According to Breitbart, Trump accumulated more than 13 million votes while winning 37 of the 50 states and handful of territories, more than the number earned by 2012 nominee Mitt Romney or 2008’s John McCain.
In fact, by way of comparison, Trump beat out the previous record holder, President George W. Bush, who succeeded in gaining 10.8 million primary votes in the 2000 election cycle.
Trump took to his Facebook page on Thursday to let all of his fans know how much he appreciated and was honored by their support throughout the process.
“Together, we accomplished what nobody thought was possible – and we’re only getting started,” he wrote.
“You have given me the honor to lead the Republican Party to victory this fall, and I won’t let you down. I will make you proud of your party, our movement and most importantly, our country,” he continued. “To everyone who voted for me throughout this campaign: thank you.”
Trump went on to reiterate his message that has clearly resonated with a significant number of Americans. That would be: Make America great again by putting America first when it comes to the economy and jobs, the military, border security, immigration, and a host of other important issues.
“This is a movement – it’s about common sense and doing the right thing,” Trump declared. “I’m going to take care of people. I’m going to make sure this country comes first. As Americans, we have incredible potential and I am the leader this country needs to Make America Great Again.”
Judging by the way Trump handily won the GOP primary campaign, he is well on his way to putting himself in the position where he can indeed work toward making this nation as great as it can be once more.
