Donald Trump is dominating the GOP primary.

He just won big in Iowa and New Hampshire.

The RNC was considering a resolution to make Donald Trump the “presumptive nominee.”

Trump thanked the RNC but said he “should do it the “Old Fashioned” way, and finish the process off AT THE BALLOT BOX.”

Truth Social:

While I greatly appreciate the Republican National Committee (RNC) wanting to make me their PRESUMPTIVE NOMINEE, and while they have far more votes than necessary to do it, I feel, for the sake of PARTY UNITY, that they should NOT go forward with this plan, but that I should do it the “Old Fashioned” way, and finish the process off AT THE BALLOT BOX. Thank you to the RNC for the Respect and Devotion you have shown me! TRUMP2024

The draft resolution has now been withdrawn.

Axios reported:

A Republican National Committee draft resolution seeking to declare former President Trump as the party’s presidential nominee was withdrawn on Thursday, a person familiar with the matter said.

The big picture: The withdrawal comes after Trump said Thursday evening that the RNC shouldn’t move forward with the resolution — which, if approved, would have named him as their 2024 candidate at a time when Nikki Haley has no intention of dropping out of the race.

Driving the news: The resolution was going to be “taken up by the Resolutions Committee,” which would have decided whether to send it “to be voted on by the 168 RNC members at our annual meeting next week,” RNC spokesperson Keith Schipper told Axios before the draft was pulled.

He noted such resolutions are brought forward by RNC members, and Chair Ronna McDaniel “doesn’t offer resolutions.”
