( – On Sunday, former President Trump dismissed Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley’s first primary win in Washington, D.C., arguing that he had “purposefully” selected to stay away from D.C. 

In his comments, Trump referred to D.C. as a “Swamp”  and argued that there were very few delegates and no “upside” provided. Taking to his social media platform Truth Social late on Sunday he proceeded to argue that Halye had spent a lot of her time and resources in efforts in Washington, while he had spent his time winning Michigan, Idaho, and Missouri. He continued by saying that these states were “big numbers” and that he had destroyed his very weak opposition there. These numbers came ahead of Super Tuesday. 

In Washington, D.C., Haley managed to win 62.8 percent of the vote, while Trump only secured 33.3 percent according to the Republican primary. These results were announced by Decision Desk results. 

The race in these states came ahead of the Super Tuesday races. 

Following Haley’s win, Trump’s campaign press secretary Karoline Leavitt took to X, formerly known as Twitter to state that Trump’s only remaining Republican opposition in the primary race was the “Queen of the Swamp. She continued by claiming that while Nikki had faced rejection from everyone else in the United States she was the Queen of the Swamp as those in DC and the lobbyists had voted in her favor. 

Late on Sunday, Trump also slammed Haley after she had claimed that she did not feel bound to the loyalty pledge the Republican National Committee had demanded she make ahead of the primary election.
